CFM 67mm throttle body

just installed my new CFM TB on my 02 SVT focus with 160,000. what a difference it made. much more sensitive, and made my low end torque better. i can burn out soooooo much easier now and keep it going.

i noticed the stock TB was for the msot part completely plastic, and that the valve thing that turns in it was plastic and came bent, so it wasn't as big. the thing that turned wasn't completely straight and thin, so it itself was restricting air flow. definitely pleased with this upgrade. now just waiting upon magnaflow exhaust and my eibach sports system kit.

oh and what does "bump" mean on the marketplace thing? i see that all the time and have no clue what that means

Good call on the throttle body. I need to get mine installed.

And "bump"ing your post gets it back to the top of the list so more people can see your post. That way the post doesnt get lost in the long list of for sale items.

Where can I buy a CFM 67mm TB? Is it a direct bolt on or is there any modification needed. I just orded my K&N Typhoon Intake and Magnaflow CB today.

its a direct bolt on, take off the intake, take off the old throttle body, and pop on the new one.
the hardest part is after you take off the throttle and cruise control cables if you have criuse control. there is this rubber bushing thing that the throttle cable goes on, its quite difficult to get off. i ended up cutting the metal off the old throttle body just to get it off.

Any other way to find out my production # w/o calling SVT & paying $30? Thanks again & any help would be appreciated!

Thanks for the tip! Yesterday I ordered a K&N Typhoon short Ram intake and a magnaflow CB exhaust system (I truly hope it doesn't sound ricey!) but I got it for $350 shipped compared to $668 for a Borla shipped. So I'm going to go ahead & order the 67mm TB and have everything installed at once. Thanks again for your help!

The people at Contour.org are incorrect. I called and was given my production number without charge. The only reason I went ahead and purchased the certificate is because of mine's production number of #0002.

Perhaps the production number thing is strictly a Contour thing due to it's age?

That's a pretty cool production #. I'm just going to call & prolly order the certificate as well.

True
