Hey dudes! Just snagged a brand new never installed BBK 58mm throttle body from my buddy! Im really pumped to install it! Anyone else have this throttle body? Any thoughts?

Also looks like Im going to be picking myself up a CHEAP CHEAP intake mani to port match (get some practice with the dye grinder)



Everything is looking AWESOME so far except looks like the throttle cable might be too short... Any factory adjustments?

Thanks guys :D!

My intake is black. I will be leaving the TB in raw aluminum.

you'll also need to slightly cut the lip of the intake duct my stock item wouldn't quite fit..

I did this to my 85 some time ago and you will also need a digital multimeter with clips to adjust the throttle position sensor. I can look up the TPS voltage if you dont have a service manual.
