You can get the throttle bodies used all the time on the corral.net or ebay. They are just plain old mustang throttle bodies. Stick with accufab or wilson. The others have issues on a regular basis. I have owned them all.

I will have to differ on this one. Not because I own the "issue" t body either.

Blue oval performance as well as Krazy koncepts are two mustang specialty shops here locally in Portland. They drag race, road race, and drift many different cars and build tons of cars for customers as well.

They strongly recommended the Professional Products T body and in fact said the only reason to go with accufab or anything else would be to have a name brand to boast and want to spend double the money.

Im not into status, or name brands so I got a quality product that has been proven great on the track where it counts. I cant speak for the other brands as I myself have not owned all of them.

I will finish by saying that I would not buy a used throttle body. They are too inexpensive to risk anything going wrong with a used part. Buying used parts may be why the above comment was made. Try new and you might be surprised how much more nice they really are.

Just my .02, I will prepare for my roast now.

The quality of the throttle bodies is not even in the same game. I have been racing mustangs for about 12 years. The professionl products stuff is about the cheapest on the market. They ripped off their design from edlecbrock on throttle bodies and intakes. They are cheap china knock offs. I would run one of those over a bbk or edelbrock though. They are poor quality castings etc. Edelbrocks throttle bodies have issues all the time. Sticking throttle and whistling are the major issues. I have owned throttle bodies from 70mm to a 105mm. The knockoff stuff is hit and miss on quality, but it will never be in the same game as an accufab. The big thing is rough edges on the blades and sticking as well as nasty casting internaly. You can modify them to be a better unit or pay the extra 100 bucks for an accufab.

I would not hesitate to buy a used throttle body. Their is very little that can go wrong with them. The main difference between the throttle bodies is cast vs billet and more strict machining processes. Not saying they are all junk, but you never hear anyone complain about an accufab

Wasnt trying to tick you off Chris They are just known to whistle and stick. They are not the greatest throttle body out there, but not a bad unit. There are things you can do to make it work better. If you want to know PM and I will tell you what to do. The accufabs make more hp, but we are only talking usually 2-5hp more. The accufab unit just looks like a work of art compared to the others

You havent ticked me off. I just know the quality of the part I just took out of teh box and the quality of what you describe are two very different things. The internals are smooth. No rough edges on any machined sections of the housing and the throttle blade has a perfect edge with no rough parts. It operates smoothly when opening and closing with no sticking issues. I dont see all of those things becoming an issue if the part is good from the start.

Maybe their quality has improved since the last time you purchased one of their T bodies I dont know. Im not here to argue that so we will just agree to disagree.

If I should have an issue with this T body then I will PM you for sure.
