Throttle Bodies
this part is a favorite for most. While the horsepower gain is minimal, the throttle response added by an upgraded throttle body is definatley noticable and a good gain for the money there are several to choose from. the install can also be tricky if you are unfamiliar w/ the part and work needed. if you are unsure, while this is one of the easiest installable pieces, it is better safe than sorry. *note* most automatics transmissionsfrom require special brackets

HOW TO INSTALL(ZETEC)


SPI engine
Focus Central 60mm tb
BDR throttle body (also allows use of ZETEC intakes

another low budget option for some is to port your stock throttle body, while there isnt as much gain as there is from using the bigger bore aftermarket throttle body, the price of you doing it yourself is certainly affordable by almost everyone w/ a dremel
