Opinions on the BBK 65mm throttle body?
Have any of you used the BBK and what did you think of it?

I have the CFM one and I love it. Does the BBK one come with the cable bracket? I had to pay extra for the CFM cable bracket. The CFM one also has the cruise control cable link. The CFM one also has 3 positions for the TPS. Depending on year of car and manual or auto tranny you put the TPS in the corresponding position. Is the BBK that versatile?

It has a bracket. It only has one TPS setting.

The cfm one is a much better unit.

I just got the 65mm CFM tb in the mail yesterday and being a machinist, I have to say it's got a lot of quality machine work on it. Besides the body itself, they designed the linkeage lever too, and it turns really smooth. Apperently they got bearings in it unlike the stock one. I haven't seen the other brands, but Ithink cfm did a good job. we'll see how it works after I get my car running again.

And I think it's cheaper than the bbk one, at 239.00

I have the Focus Central TB on my car. The question was about the BBK.

I've had the BBK on my automatic for about a year now , no complaints here but in the past I've seen people complain about them.

I've also got the BBK throttle body. Honestly, I wasnt too thrilled about the fact that mine didnt come with a bracket when I purchased it. I ended up having to modify my stock bracket to get it to work. Mine also seems to be sticky at take off, meaning that I can barely touch the gas pedal, and after a 2 second delay, the thing acts like I just put it to the floor. Also the TPS and pigtail have been replaced, so I do not believe it is in those parts, but I could be wrong.
