Introduction: How to Install a HM Performance Throttle Body.

I wanted more airflow for my engine with all the upgrades already done and I have some performance camshaft's ready to go in as well so a bigger throttle body was a must. My 4.7 now a 5.0 had a 65mm throttle body but it only had a 62mm opening. I got my hands on a 68mm throttle body of a later model that had a opening of 65mm. I had that machined to 70mm all the way through. The result was impressive and when I install the performance camshaft's one that was needed. You can buy these already made but they cost a lot more. I have also had feedback that the aftermarket throttle bodies don't work as well with the onboard computers. As my throttle body is the factory unit it connects perfectly.

If you want to make your own performance throttle body there is a series of clips on my YouTube channel on how to do this.

Or I can do it for you as an exchange unit plus postage. But if your handy it is not a difficult job to do.
