Best Throttle Body For 1995 Mustang GT?

65mm if staying relatively stock, but go with the 70mm if planning future upgrades.

Have you truly entered Jesus ONE "Kingdom of GOD" or the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church through "water (baptism) and Spirit (Laying of Hands)" John 3:5 ??? Jesus fulfills Ezekiel 36:25-27 prophesy. You see entering the Early Church in this same pattern in Acts 2:38 and specifically explained in Acts 8:14-17 and Acts 19:5-6. Enter His ONE "Kingdom of GOD" to receive Jesus as the "Lamb of GOD" (John 1:29, 1 Corinthians 5:7, 1 Peter 1:19) for ETERNAL LIFE John 6:54.

Agreed!

Although, if you're going to put a larger TB on a stock intake it's probably not the best mod at this point. That money could be spent on something better. BUT if you DO want to put it on a stock intake make sure you grind the TB opening up to the same size as the TB.

As for brands... Accufab, Ford Racing, BBK, Professional Products/Summit. All these brands work just fine. The PP/Summit brand is probably the cheapest though.

I've seen people finding the Explorer intakes for about $100 here lately due to the "cash for clunkers". That would be a decent mod.

Or, for $250, you could get new upper/lower control arms AND subframe connectors. Doesn't sound like much of a "fun" mod, but they are necessary if you want to get traction and go fast!

The BBK's are just fine, they just seem to have a habbit of "whistling" at idle and WOT. But that can be fixed.

I did the Ford Racing 70mm. I am happy with that but they are getting hard to find.
