BBK 95mm Throttle Body?

I've seen this on several sites and I'm wondering how good they are? It appears they are new seeing as how they are not in stock at any of the retailers I can find them...

Any info would be much appreciated.

They use the factory electronics.

Go to www.BrothersPerformance.com

Brothers is owned by the two brothers that make up 2/3 of BBK. They are manufactured here in California and I'm sure they have them in stock.

Make sure you select your your car type to avoid the Mustang crap.

How long have these been out? Any advantage to these over the V-max?

I'd be a little patient bud, let it hit the market a little bit and see what they gave to offer. Just my .2

I was looking for them a while back but could not find them ANYWHERE. It's like they exist but don't exist. Then I heard that there was a problem with them because they were causing problems with the ECU. I eventually gave up on chasing ghosts and I went with a V-Max PP TB. I'd still like to buy one tho. Has anyone here got one yet?

The car in the BBK video has a CAI , x pipe, and LT headers and made those numbers with the stock tune. In the link I posted above you can see this along with the Dyno run. FWIW

V-Max has a video of the before and after dyno pulls with their p&p TB. They made 9hp and 11tq to the wheels. You can see the video on YouTube. I saw one BBK video a while back with a dyno run of their TB. But sometimes BBK videos are more like commercials with the intent to sell their product as opposed to being factual and informative...IMO. And a lot of times they group several different mods together instead of one particular mod. But I see how my question gave the wrong idea. I wasn't taking it as fact, I was asking if the gains were true and comparable to V-Max's proven gains. I just phrased it wrong.

everything is a sales job!

either way, i'd like to see a head to head between the bbk and the vmax.

Vmax claims no need to tune for a TB resize so it is still a 90mm??
BBK is 95mm so you would want to tune the car so it will idle properly.

Discussion on this?

Also If bbk says its a 95mm tb then is there any modifications needed for the intake? Does it need opening up? Or is the outside diameter "95mm" and then shrinks back to a 90mm? If that's the case what is the point?

Further discussion topics lol

I saw these several months ago but opted just to send my intake and TB off to be ported for cheaper than the BBK TB. I think it was around 300.00 for both ported.

I thought factory intake was 95mm?



As for the reason I want this one over the vmax right now is mostly because I don't want a polished part. If air truly flows better over rough machined surfaces, then why does vmax polish their throttle bodies?

I'm not the authority on this, but I think it mainly depends on the type of engine. I believe some engines make more power with turbulent air while other engines make more power with smoother airflow...
