    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. Unlike other Throttle Bodies on the market today for the F-150, the BBK Throttle Body does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at BBK really did their homework to improve your truck's power using the factory tune.

    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?

    JoshW

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

    Do you have the gasket recommended for this install?

    VicT

    • 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.

    Will this fit a 2017 F150 3.5 ecoboost?

    colbyT

    • 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.

    Is a gasket required for installation?

    JoshuaJ

    • We would highly recommend using a gasket with this BBK 73mm Throttle Body or any throttle body for that matter. Without a gasket, your engine may be susceptible to a vacuum leak and could cause some serious trouble.

    JohnL

    • While this part may be a good fit on a 3.5l V6 NA engine, it is only designed and a guaranteed fit on a 3.5l ecoboost engine.

      BBK 73MM Throttle Body

      Great product! Much better response, and power over OEM. MPG’s up almost 2MPG. I would recommend replacing your clamp that holds the boot on the throttle body with constant tension clamp. Awesome product highly recommend.

      Good mod for a little more HP

      I replaced my original TB with this BBK on my 2013 3.7.. it’s a super crew with large wheels so it’s always been somewhat sluggish. With this TB I definitely notice more get up... it’s pretty comparable now to my old 4.6, which was a great truck. At least when I punch it now not only does it sound like it should be speeding up... it does!

      Great Upgrade

      Simple upgrade to help unleash a little more of the beast hidden in the 3.5 L Eco. Install took 35 minutes start to finish. No tune required. Install video and instructions spot on. BBK just one part of airflow system that includes performance CAI, Intercooler Charge tube and exhaust..all work together flawlessly for more 3.5 HP, mileage improvements and better growl (as much as you can get out of V6). BBK is high quality part that delivers...highly recommend. Another great product and experience with American Truck too!!

      Hard to get hose on

      The instal is easy until you go to slide the stock hose on it, then there is some bad words being said. The inlet must be just bigger than the stock one and that sucked. I got it on after several minutes of struggle and then it blew off on test drive and had to put it on again. Real annoying. Only did this to get away from fords junk stock one

      Great product!

      I installed the 73mm throttle body with the JMS BoostMax which has made a big improvement! I can’t feel the power at the lower end and is probably due to not having a cat back exhaust, but one is already on the way. The higher RPMS you can really feel the increased horse power, I will be ordering a custom inter cooler and then upgrading to some custom turbos for my 2014 3.5L Ford F-150, can’t wait!!!

      Makes nose!

      Its more expensive than its worth in my opinion, I didn't really notice any gains. Maybe once I purchase a cold air intak I will. I purchased the AFE spacer as well. What it does do however is make some nose under the hood, I feel my engine bay rumble a little. Over all I'm content, not happy or sad, just content.
