      I have a professional power products TB and it looks way different then the one on my 99 5.0 the bolt pattern On the 94-95 is huge compared to the stock explorer bolt pattern. I have it for sale if you would like to buy it. It's a Polished 75 mm professional power products throttle body

      I got the 75mm TB for my 347, which is going into my Mark VII instead this Spring. The bigger TB will help any engine though, they can use it, and any other airflow improvements.

      You can do more with these OBDII vehicles before you need to get a programmer and re-tune the computer. But that new program will make a nice improvement, whenever you get around to doing it. Have fun with it, my 98 was a high 17 second truck when I got it with 98k on it. They take off well, but they need more power for sure.

      I have recently put a 75 mm professional power products throttlebody on my 99 5.0 export if you need any help figuring out the bugs message me. Or if you would like you can send me your new throttlebody and I will modify it to work for your explorer my number is 806-334-0668 or Ricky Don 33 [MENTION=184597]yahoo[/MENTION]

      87-93 mustang TB mounted on my 99 5.0 explorer

      I recently mounted a Professional Power Products 75mm TB on my 99 5.0 explorer. I had to relocate where the accelerator cable mounts on the TB and used a dremal tool to port the gasket plus a little port work to the upper intake. After that just pluged the vacuum line on the TB and I have all the bugs worked out and it runs great! If you need any help send me a message @ rickydon33@yahoo or just send it to me and I will do all the mods.

      Ok, I know I'm raising this old thread from the dead. Call it The Walking Thread if you will but I have a 70mm accufab Throttle that still haven't put on because of the TPS setup. It's already been modified on the bracket to fit the ball in the new location. I want to know what that adapter piece right there is that connects what looks like the original Explorer TPS connector to the mustang sensor? I've also had people tell me that they've somehow re-used the Explorer TPS by drilling out the holes more and Jon also said the Cobra TPS will work. I been really busy so haven't had the chance to settle down and finish this project but would like to get some insight before I do.

      -Bump. I've still never installed this throttle because of the TPS wiring. Does anyone know what the O.P. used for what looks like that adaptor piece to connect the mustang TPS and the Explorer harness?

      I think you'd do fine to just buy the car side pigtail of any Fox 302 Mustang, and splice that in place of your truck's connector. If the truck was newer and resale was a big issue, then you might want to avoid cutting the car wiring. I think you can find the pigtail new at some parts sources. Just take the Fox TPS in to compare, or buy one if you don't have it yet.

      The TPS wires are the same number and function, maybe even the same colors. The wire connections just need to be soldered and not just crimped. Find the butt crimp connectors, red might work but blue is a good bet. Use one that either has no insulation, or that you can cut it off of. There is a seam along the metal crimp connector. So you can easily crimp the wires together, and then put heat to the connector, and solder at the seam. Once it sucks some solder in, it's done. Remember to place heat shrink over one end and move it far enough away to not shrink during soldering.

      Ok cool I may just have to do that then. Just wanted to see if there was any options before hacking the harness side of my truck. I definitely don't plan on getting rid of my truck ever. I also got screaming demon coils coming with new wires.

      So I wanna see how my cam reacts to the changes. I'm not sure on the plug gap though considering my heads have .018" IIRC milled off. Runs good now and is tuned from James but seems like some power is being left on the table. Here's a vid of my truck.

      Very nice, it's all looking good. Did Ed Curtis do the cam, and what rpm did he aim it for? He's going to do mine when I get time to start the engine work. I'll ask him what compression he can work with to still use regular. I've got a couple of pistons in mind, and they will be in the 9.5:1 range.

      Yeah he did. Everything in my rotating assembly is still stock parts. The cam spec said the power and starts under 2000 rpms but I honestly don't feel until after 2000 rpms. It's a pretty good cam overall. I still want to change the heads but I've read about fitment issues with TMH's?. Might do that down the road one day when I finish up my turbo 3v project.

      Sounds good. Make that turbo project work great. The Explorer 302 is a weird monster, there isn't a simple path to building much more power, as you know already. The exhaust is crap from Ford, and the space under hood is so limited everything is tough to improve.
