FC Throttle Body - Just installed!!!

869 Views 16 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Venom713
Well, I finally have the last of the 'bolt on' mods for the SVTF. Turbo install is set for 6/25/06. Let me just say wow, what a difference! Im not talking about ground pounding power; rather ease of driving. No more 'stick' when I go to give it gas. Better idle, just an all around great mod. I never understood what people meant about better driveability until now!

Next, the VF Mounts (all three) and then the big power adder!!

Now, If I could just sell off my NA mods! [;)]

I felt like it made my gas peddle a little more "touchy" or "responsive".....as far as the stick, well I got it this winter when it got really cold, but not as bad.

congrats on your new upgrade [thumb] and NJoy

good question... i was also wondering the same thing as Rudy... I wonder how much a throttle body would really help me right now since mine is all stock... It would help out alot if i were to get a cold air intake right?

I really liked the throttle body after i installed it. Many people suggest a STS for the first mod as well as the lower engine mount.

But the TB is well worth it.

the TB is mostly for response, I didnt feel any more power out of it. Its definitely a different feel though.

I was thinking Diablo Predator ECU, or maybe off road pipe and exhaust... but is that going the wrong way about it?

What was THE first things you did? like, first few mods, or even the best/favorit mods you got?

My favorite mod was the aem cai. Don't worry about water that people so often say causes hydro lock though. I drive mine through down pours and large standing water. Also the tune, Most noted power increase and also gives all around better drivability. I just like the whistling sound my cai makes.
