    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    What's going on guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com. This is my quick review and breakdown of the BBK 73 Millimeter Throttle Body fitting the 2011 through 2016 3.5-liter F-150 EcoBoost. So in this video, I'm going to talk about what you can expect in terms of performance gains as well as hitting on the installation a little bit later in the video. But right off the bat I'm going to be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You should have this on your truck in about 30 minutes to an hour tops. So this is going to be for the EcoBoost truck owner that's looking to make their engine breathe a little bit more effectively as well as create horsepower, torque, as well as some much-needed noise under the hood. Now if we're going to be pairing this with an after-market cold air intake, all of these gains are going to be that much more amplified. All right guys, so right off the bat I want to mention that this part alone is not going to yield that high of gains and you should be looking at single digit numbers. But if you're looking to increase the horsepower that much more I would definitely suggest pairing this with a cold air intake as well as a hand-held tuner to maximize the gains of your EcoBoost. So taking a look at the construction here guys, BBK is going to have this made up of 356 grade aluminum that's going to be then CNC'd to make sure that you're going to have a perfect fit as well as finish on your EcoBoost F-150. So this throttle body is going to feature OEM dye stamp linkages, double sealed bearings as well as having O-ring throttle shafts. Now this is going to work very, very well with the late model drive-by-wire Ford F-150s. Now taking a look at the pricing here guys we're going to see that this is going to fall in line right around the $400 price range which is typically what you're going to be spending for a throttle body. So for the money here you're going to be increasing your throttle response, horsepower, torque, as well as picking up a little bit of noise under hood. My opinion, it's definitely a great bang for the buck here for what you're getting. So just to hit this home again guys you're going to be getting away with a quality made part that's more than likely going to outlast your factory unit as well as being able to pair with a cold air intake down the road, which is going to help increase your gains in the long run. So like I said in the beginning of the video, the installation in this throttle body is going to be a very easy, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and you should have this on your truck in about 30 minutes to an hour tops with only some basic hand tools. So you're essentially just going to need to just disconnect your battery, pull a few hoses, loosen some clamps, replace your factory unit with the upgraded unit, and you're good to go. All right guys, so just to wrap things up here, I really like this option from BBK. Not only based on the fact that this aftermarket unit is more than likely going to outlast your OE unit but as well as creating more horsepower, torque, throttle response, and a little bit more noise under the hood. Especially when you're going to be pairing this with a cold air intake or a tune down the road. So that's my review and install for the BBK 73 Millimeter Throttle Body fitting the 2011 through 2016 F-150 EcoBoost available right here at americanmuscle.com

    Excellent Performance Gains. Give your V6 F-150 an increase in power by replacing your restrictive factory throttle body with the BBK Power Plus Series Throttle Body that features a generous, free flowing 73mm bore design. The install couldn't be any simpler with its direct bolt-on install. Best of all, this throttle body does not require any computer recalibration to enjoy the gains of 8 to 12 RWHP you put on your truck.

    Quality Construction. This BBK F-150 Throttle Body is CNC machined from high quality 356 aluminum to ensure OEM quality and a perfect fit. Features like OEM die stamped throttle linkages, double sealed bearings, and o-ringed throttle shafts make this throttle body one of best on the market today.

    Bolt-On Installation. The BBK Throttle Body is designed for a straightforward installation and features pre-installed electronics making it a no-hassle go fast upgrade.

    No Tune Required. These Power Plus Series Throttle Bodies are designed to work with a factory tune in most cases. Depending on ECM sensitivity on your model and other modifications, a tune is sometimes recommended. While it's not normally required, a tune will not only allow the vehicle to work with certain aftermarket add ons but will also improve overall performance of your entire array of upgrades to work together as a whole and can normally update such items as the factory torque limit functions.

    Application.
    This BBK Power Plus Series 73mm Throttle Body is specifically designed to fit the 2011 to 2016 F-150s equipped with the 3.5L EcoBoost or 3.7L V6 engine.

    Technical Note. This BBK product is not legal or intended for use in emission restrictive states.

        Should I be using this with an AFE silverbullet throttle body spacer?

        • The BBK 73mm Throttle Body would not work with a throttle body spacer and would only hinder the throttle body's performance.

        Will this fit a 2017 F150 3.5 ecoboost?

        • Unfortunately, this BBK 73mm Throttle Body is specifically designed for 11-16 3.5L EcoBoost and 3.7L F-150s, so it will not fit a 2017 3.5L EcoBoost.

        Do you have the gasket recommended for this install?

        • The BBK 73mm Throttle Body will reuse the OEM gasket. At this time we do not offer this gasket, however if a new gasket is required due to damage of the OEM gasket, these are available from your local Ford dealer, and most auto parts stores.

            Lacks Performance and Sucks Gas

            I read a lot of reviews before I purchase this. My stock throttle body was stuck open on my 2013 Ford F150 eco boost so I decided to upgrade when reading reviews claiming it would gain gas mileage if you add this throttle body and an aftermarket air intake system. I purchased the BBK 73mm Throttle Body (11-16 3.5L EcoBoost, 3.7L F-150) along with the AFE Magnum FORCE Stage 2 Cold Air Intake w/ Pro 5R Oiled Filter - Black (12-14 3.5L EcoBoost F-150) and needless to say I lost almost 5 MPG. I spoke with customer support about it and they said I needed to purchase another $500 computer to reprogram my computer to read the proper airflow. After visiting two aftermarket shops both told me they were full of it and just trying to get me to spend more money. Both places said I should remove the throttle body. I gained a little horsepower from the two devices but would have much rather spent $100 for a new factory throttle body.

            Mixed emotions

            Long story..... I put the throttle body upgrade on a 2013 F150 3.5 EcoBoost. I had no problems first weekend. One day I got the good ole wrench light. I spent 2 weeks trying to get it to relearn the throttle position. No luck. Come to find out if you have a pedal controller to adjust the voltage going to the throttle body, take it off. I have pedal max from JMS and they do not work well together. My mixed emotions are I like the pedal max more than the throttle body. Spent big money on throttle body guess its staying on there. Hope this helps. Its not worth the 500$ but there is nothing wrong with the product.

            BBK 73mm throttle body

            Arrived within a few days of ordering, thanks American Trucks! You can tell from the packaging and top notch appearance of throttle body that BBK takes pride in their products! Install was pretty straight forward just use caution when pulling off hoses and electrical connections. I put a very thin layer of petroleum jelly on the lip of BBK throttle body (all the way around) before reinstalling the intake hose. Since the BBK throttle body is larger, you’ll find it makes it easier. Also, get the bottom of the hose over the lip first and while holding in place, use your fingers to help it along on the sides and top. After that just make sure to tighten everything down and make all connections. IMO, this is my favorite mod so far. It smoothed out any idle issues and throttle response is comparable to sport mode with it in stock. I have SOS performance coil packs, SCT tuner with MPT performance tunes and “drop in” KandN air filter. This is the icing on the cake and a must have to compliment those mods!

            The truest bolt on mod I can feel!

            I bought this for my 2015 3.5L. I have a very long list of mods that I have purchased for this truck. This one by far the one mod I can feel increased throttle response from, as far as bolt on. It was very easy to install. The only issue I had with was the cold side charge pipe blowing off with the OEM worm clamp on. For a while I had to use some wire to keep it on. Instead, I purchase a new 86/94 (I think) constant tension clamp from Mishimoto. That worked like a charm, no more coupler blow off. Very happy with this purchase. Made "daily driver" mode (non sport or tow) feel more like "Sport" as far as throttle response.

            Increased Response and picked up engine growl

            I was actually more surprised with the results especially after reading the reviews. The mid range power is smoother and pulls harder and doesn't drop off in the higher RPMs. I am not sure if my old throttle body was going out and this is why I felt the results, but I was very surprised on how it is performing. I am running a 91 high performance tune, CAI, and 4" catback. Install is easy and a tip on putting they new throttle body on is to loosen the gear clamp all the way out and then get on a step stool so you are right over the intake. It will ensure it goes on straight and will glide right on to the intake.

            Ford OEM etb failed repetitively under acceleration at 60,000 miles causing truck to lose all power, sometimes at highway speeds. Didn't want to deal with this issue again. So far so good, as mentioned getting the boot back on can be tough.

            OK, It's not difficult to install but it is a little tight it took me a little over an hour but only because my hand don't fit into the small space. Throttles a little jumpy with better response, sounds a little louder under the hood, no gain in mileage or power just the response.
