Installing a TB

I am considering switching TB on my car. I currently have a Ford Oval TB.

Is there anything I need to know when doing this or is it as simple as it seems?

Any gasket issues?

I am thinking that TB means throtal body? If so, you do need a new gasket and it's just 4 - 8mm nuts that hold the throtal body on. Just pull the old one off and bolt your new one in place and enjoy.

If it's not a throtal body your asking about, at least now you know how to put one on if you every have the desire.

if you buy the FMS 70mm it comes with a new gasket. Gives great throttle response.

The BBK 70mm TB is also an excellent choice. -Just recently switched to it. It comes with the gasket also. The install takes about 20 minutes. -Hardest part was getting the Throttle position Sensor off of the old TB because it had corroded slightly. I'm now getting much better throttle response over stock - I can really feel it.

The TB swap is easy. Unless you shred the gasket you can reuse it.

the FMS one comes with sensor already attached making it an even better throttle body than the other aftermarket ones. BBK has been known to break.
