I just went from a OEM TB to a Focus Central 65mm TB and it is night and day.

I gained 2.4 WHP and 7 ft-lbs TQ. I actually have a 18 ft-lb TQ gain in the midband@4750 RPM it's 10 ft-lbs(where it matters).

I just had my cam gears adjusted on the dyno this past Saturday. It was a good investment as well. Now I sit at 133 whp and, 126 ft-lbs TQ.

I dont think anyone has proven gains with this... Just better response... If u saw gains maybe it was dynoed on a diff day, colder car, other or with mods installed

So what does one mean when one says "better response"?

Even if it doesn't give you much of a gain in terms of peak horsepower, doesn't the better throttle response suggest it's making more power throughout the rest of the RPM range?

Identical thread in the SVT section, which the car is and the 67mm is specific to.

Thread closed.

(I can't merge them)

Threads Merged and reopened

And to the OP the bigger TB is great for throttle response however won't result in much HP gain. I installed a 65mm on my Zetec Auto, it was the BEST mod I ever did.
