Hey just had a question ????

I have the ohv 4.0 in my 97 x and i wanted to get the bbk throttle body. My question is it wroth the $200 buck to purchase the throttle body. I have header cat back chip and open air intake kit done to my x. If i remember correctly ALEC saying that the throttle body only make's a diffrence if you have mode done to the motor kind of like what i got. I would really apprecaite for you guy's and gal's out there that have the bbk on there x if you could let me know if it was worth the money.

I'll tell you what man, it made a big difference in my truck.
It can out-and-out fly now, pulls hard, 0-45 is effortless, 0-60 is pretty sweet too.

Keep in mind, I already added exhaust, bigger maf, and open element air filter BEFORE I added the TB.

If you get the BBK TB, be aware that you might have to adjust your throttle cable a little; at least I need to; it's not letting the TB flap close all the way.

Yeah, if you get a that throttle body I would get the exhaust done and and FIPK kit or a KKM, something along those lines of an open air filter. You can only really benefit from it if you first have these two things done.

..... looks like I am set for that throttle body.

Actually it's the mass airflow sensor that won't really help until you've done some serious mods. The throttle body will make a difference on your X.

My '97 plastic upper intake measures only 63MM ID where the throttle body bolts up. Did you guys mod the openning for the 66MM? The o-ring lip is 68MM so it doesn't allow for much meat removal.

and ittttt'sssss aallllliiiiiivvvveee.

200 bones seems like a lot to throw in on somethin that doesn't sound crazy like a new muffler with a 2.5" pipe or some JBA headers to deepen that muffler up mmmmm I'm so stoked to put some ceramic headers on the rig

Re-viving again, any further thoughts on this?? Not familiar with bigger MAF? BBK offering a discount for the next two weeks. Dont want to blow $250 or so on no gain.

Cheapest price I have found online $186.11 Delivered. Really considering.

That's about what I paid for mine. I've had them on all 4 Explorer's I have had.
