Mustang Throttle Body

Hello everyone. I am thinking about putting a larger throttle body on my 3.0. A member on here is selling an adaptor for a mustang throttle body. What, if any mods, will I have to do for this to work? I have been looking for throttle bodies and found one out of an explorer and the guy selling it says it will fit a 302 mustang so it should be the same? I'm also unsure about my intake. Will this adaptor add more length to my throttle body causing my intake tube to be too long? Thanks guys.

I think it would work with a stock intake. I don't see why it wouldn't.

not to be a negative nancy since this isnt what you asked but, you wont gain anything by increasing the tb size, and may end up hurting lower end if its drastically larger. the only time a stock tb is to small is when your gettin boost and trying to flow some real air.

+1 A larger TB won't flow any more air, it will only decrease the air velocity, which will hurt you. The OEM setup is tuned for the highest efficiency.
