The fins I know need to be removed but IIRC in the throttle body thread someone stated they measured and the upper intake opening was around 78-79mmthe upper to the GT TB. my buddies is also ported, you can actually see the green gasket a little when you open the TB. I know on my BBK tb, if you open it up and feel inside, the upper intake is slightly larger than the 73mm tb. I would estimate the opening to be around 75-76mm....you might get it to 77-78mm if you went crazy thin, your still going to be left with a small lip. for sure the "fins" need to be ground out
It was dead on! But i'm just wondering how much of a difference this will make if it's only 4mm. it sounds to me like the 80mm throttle body will fit pretty well and combined with your pipe which is pretty wide even at the intake manifold end will yield some good results.Guess my guess was fairly close
Would this work for the base v6 grills?http://www.velossatechdesign.com/product/2015-2016-s550-mustang-big-mouth-ram-air-kit/
they make a big mouth ram air. Now im even more interested in forking over the money on it
Do you have pictures?I opened up my stock grill by removing the furthest three sections of honeycomb at the airbox intake, also I'm running the AEM dry drop in filter.
My temps with normal driving stay 10-15 degrees above ambient.
If I'm on the throttle, such as going up a long hill or just having a heavy foot the temp get about 6-10 above ambient.
Happy with my inexpensive mod.
