What are your guys's thoughts on the BBK throttle body?

As the title says, what are your guys's thoughts on it. I know I can install it myself and it looks like it adds a decent amount of flow to the engine (and would go well with a new exhaust). Only problem is it's fairly pricey so I wanted to hear your opinions and see if anyone here has one. Thanks:)

I dont think it will do you any good without proper flow enhancement elsewhere. Deeper than cat back exhaust. Maybe if you had an aftermarket intake manifold, headers, tuning, etc.. Theres easier ways at this stage to make a little more power, for less money...

^What he said. Look into a tuner or an intake if you want to make some more power right now.

I always saw very little benefit from these when I used to work on Mustangs at a performance shop I used to work at. They do help when you enhance the airflow like a whole intake manifold (both upper and lower plenums) and better flowing cylinder heads. None of which I think are made for the 4.0.

I'm gonna have to agree and say save the money and get a tuner. They're really not that hard to use/install. You won't have to break out the lap top like an AEM Management system, or a F.A.S.T. Bank to Bank.
