rdaex I Like supporting people, but maybe CFM should be more price competitive?
I think Im gonna go w the BBK one on ebay and try to offer them low.

SVTFocusOnMe Nice! One seller took longer to respond than the other. I don't recall which.

My point was to save people some money. Not put CFM out of business. I have their ORP and under drive pulleys which are very nice.

ukfan50 I just left the eBay seller from post/link above a "Best Offer" of $200 (free shipping).

macdiesel Never said "bad" or " person" in my post. Personally, I'd rather support a company that's makes more than one part for an aging chassis.

SVTFocusOnMe How am I a bad person for buying a quality part from a reputable company and save myself money?

macdiesel Ooooor you could support a site sponsor, like CFM, and purchases directly from them. Sooooo CFM continue to make parts for the mk1.

SVTFocusOnMe Okay so resurrecting this tread from the dead because I finally got the BBK TB. I have no way to compare it to the CFM but I am very impressed with the quality and impact the part has on my car.

I wrote this in another thread already but I figured I would throw it in here too. The BBK TB is on ebay for 250 shipped or make an offer. I offered both sellers 200 for it and they both accepted. Not a guarantee that it will be the same for you but if your in the market for one I think it is worth a shot. Links below...

If anyone would like I can post pics of it installed.

If that convinces you to spend $250 so be it. I don't think it's worth it.

Stock: 20.5735 in^2
BBK: 21.2114 in^2 (0.6379 in^2 larger than stock)
CFM: 21.8591 in^2 (0.6477 in^2 larger than BBK)
I don't see how this can be....

I remember when I had my old FC 65mm TB, my stock SVTF TB would actually fit inside the the FC 65mm TB. I wish I took a pic to show it.

As for the OP, I have only seen one a normal zetec BBK TB, the outsides of it isn't as smooth as the FC or CFM ones. But it worked perfect like the others. Find someone with a Powerworks SC kit installed. I think some of those kits came with a larger BBK TB.

But TurboTom is correct, i liked how everyone ignored him. A bigger TB will not yield HP gains, just better throttle response and a stiffer gas pedal due to the stiffer spring on the new TB. Porting the stock TB would be the more economical move or find one used...

Jack The Ripper BBK's headquarters is literally like 5 miles from my house. I just had to say that lol.

Throttle body

I ported my stock throttle body and you will feel a considerable improvement in throttle response and engine power below 2000rpm, now I don't know for a fact that I'm making any more power, but I can tell you that it feels more like I thought an SVTF should and you will enjoy driving the car a lot more.
