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.

Thanks for the link, much appreciated! Looks like we have the same SB SVTF. I know when I first purchased my SVTC you could call SVT & get the production #, but in recent years on contour.org newer SVTC owners were stating that they'd call SVT & they would not provide the production # unless you purchased the "SVT Certificate" for $30. 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.

What size is the factory SVT throttle body? I'm wondering if a tune would do the same thing (off idle feel).

factory TB is 65mm. And Yes a tune will make a big off idle performance increase. At least on Supercharged. I assume it will on N/A as well.

Nice! My goal is NOT to burn out however. My goal is to achieve maximum "get up and go" for what I am willing to put into it. How is the get up and go with this TB over stock? Whne pushing the peddal, is it still just a smooth press on it? Or does it become very stiff and hard to push down on?

well i don't usually burn out, but when i revv it like i did tonight, a quality tire spin is definitely possible. there was a big big difference and the get up is quite nice. the stock one was definitely slow at the acceleration. the new TB was pretty peppy, without being ridiculously sensitive. they say when you get a new TB, you need to go "re learn" your car....yeaaa no. i was totally comfortable with it right away. i definitely noticed the pickup tho. when in idle, you revv it with the old one, its a slower rev to get to higher rpms, with the new, it gets there pretty quickly. it definitely didn't feel stiff or hard to push down. the pedal felt pretty similar from before, but you just don't have to press down as much. it was an improvement indeed. you will be pleased with the results..along as you put it in right =D.

Actually Stock TB on the SVT is 63mm.

Saw this kinda late. But figured I would pop in and say it for those who read through the thread later.

^^^ yeah I always thought the stock TB tapered down from the opening. CFM build quality products, many i've owned since first production , and have never had any problems with them. The bigger TB wakes the car up i little.
