    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.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    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.

    Helpful (1)

    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.

    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.

    Would this fit with an aftermarket cold air intake?

    • This will work with an aftermarket throttle body yes.

    Installed this part today. Am having issue with the throttle hanging at around 1500 rpms. Also revs up to over 2krpms when shifted into park. Ideas?

    • We would recommend disconnecting the Battery, and leaving it disconnected for 10-15 minutes, then reconnecting the battery. once this is completed. start the car and let it idle for around 5 minutes, then take it for a spin around the block and see if the condition still exists. If the car still has the issue after this, the throttle position snesor voltage may be off and should be compared to the original throttle body.

      BBK 73mm Throttle Body

      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.

      BBK 73mm

      Fit and finish is top notch. I didn’t feel anything over stock. I’m tuned, coldaired, as well as upgraded tubing and exhausted. Haha but took care of the studder I was having with the truck under hard Acceleration. Hopefully with new turbo set up it will help with a bit more power?

      Throttle response immediate

      Extremely pleased with ease of install and throttle response. Be careful of CAC sensor wiring, when changing out TB, I had to change out connector, but not BBK’s fault. Fixed the stock lag issue, and has added that extra thrill when paired with MPT custom tune on SCT X4 tuner.

      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!!
