Fak! I'm sorry. I just want to delete my stock throttle body and idle motor with a simple mustang TB, but I don't have plans to hit over 230 whp, and as BEGI states, I will lose horsepower on a setup with that HP goal.

Sorry, didn't see this....

I'm ordering one now. Probably getting a Mishimoto one. Getting the hook up from Turn 14.

I've got a few things to do before the dyno day, and that is one of them. Also want to relocate the front license plate since Braineack said my coolant temps were noticeably higher.

Note: I'd call BEGI and chat with them. They may or may not have any remaining ones. The one I got wasn't that pretty up close and required some cleaning since it wasn't smooth and I wasn't risking flashings or whatever getting sent into the engine.

Corky said if you plan on making less than 270whp, you'll probably lose some power (1-3% IIRC). Not a big deal for me since really anything over 200whp is gravy. Over 250 is friggin sweet. 270-300whp is giggling hysterically fun. I can't imagine what 315+whp would feel like....
