is there anybody out there who can vouch for either one of these tb's? there's a 40 dollar difference between the 2 and i was wondering if either one was better than the other.

The BBK is an original piece. They specialize in throttle bodies. The Steeda looks like a private label job and is really a FC. My money is on BBK.

yeah the steeda one looks just like the fc ones, probably are. and i have heard that the bbk's aren't quite as responsive. hopefully a few more people will be able to add to this thread.

The steeda one is the Focus Central one. Steeda carries a couple of FC parts
up to and including the Focus Central long tube header. I would say go with
the Steeda throttle body.

The Steeda one is a FC one and THEY DONT HAVE ANY MORE. I tried to order one from them. I had to get it from Modern Preformance in TX and they only have red left. I have not yet put my FC one in the car yet. Im polishing out the little cuts made by the CNC machine on the inside to improve the air flow.

yeah that's what i thought, but doesn't steeda still make a tb? it's advertised on their site right now and is on sale, so i don't know why they would show it and not sell it.

Thats the one that I called about. They have not updated their site. I found that to be true on Modern's site too. Its very annoying. I have found that Steeda dose not make their own TB, UDP's and Cam gears. I ordered the "Steeda" cam gears and got a set of Fidanza's. Im looseing faith in Steeda. I also herd that Focus Central might be comeing back.

I recall having heard the company that made the TBs for Focus Central orignally is still selling them without the FC markings, I just can't recall who it was that makes them.

Thats funny that steeda still has the tbs still for sale, I just recently got their
2006 parts catalog and they have it listed in there, only the blue on though.
