Just need honest opinions, should I order the BBK TB or no?
I have had one for years. I like it.
In my Opinion... it is not worth the extra 9 hp at 5000 rpm. There are alot of idle surging after installing the BBK. I have one but not really liking it. just my 2 cents.... save your money and get some hardened pushrods . That is money better spent.
Hardened pushrods, seriously Norbert? That's the most random advice I think I have heard on this forum.
I bent a pushrod stock.
I would rather see the money for a throttlebody go to Jtsvp, Roe, Jmb, or venomous
Jtsv or Roe is the best way to roll .
BBK had a lot of issues when they first came out and some still do .Throttle hanging and surging .
I had three of them .The first one was a mess ,shaft kept hanging and sticking open .I sent it back and they set another new one right out ,after 6 months same thing .I sent it back and the third was WAY better but every great once and awhile it would hang at 2000 rpm till I bump pedal just a bit then it was ok .
But I have heard they are better made with out as many issues now .:dontknow:
I have Tony's & Rick (PhxPoolGuy) has a Roe. We both like what we have. Check those two out before you buy.
only $400 upgrade i could think of! lol
Alright I'll check them out
JMB ,Venomous1 and ROE have been excellent places I've dealt with,I have an X-metal single blade and haven't had any problems at all.
Think I'll go with the roe TV and I'm getting a tuner from Torrie, think this will wake up my QC ?
Roe TB damn auto text
I tested both the BBK and JTSV years ago; Dyno results here.:

I would go with the JTSV if it was me. Drive ability was better with JTSV.
BBK works good..
Your making a good choice with a ROE
Some of the other TB's require you to use the shaft and springs from your current TB. The BBK is 100% complete as is.
That being said, I've had 2 BBK's, an earlier one for my truck which did have a sticking issue and a later one on a Viper that was 100% perfect.
I would stay away from the x-metal ones, I have some experience there as well.
I had a BBK throttle body. Throttle would stick and surge like hell.
Currently have a JTSVP throttle body. Had to do extensive honing so that the throttle blades would not contact the TB walls and stick. Also have a strange whistle now.
Same here. Had mine off & on, 3x to get it just right.
Its the nitros feed plugs in the TB that give us a distinctive sound.
no cover on the nitrous fitting since its not being used??
I used thread sealer on those plugs and the sound didn't change.
