    The old throttle body swapped over to the new engine. There is an adjustment bolt on it. I played around with it alot when the engine was blown to make it idle higher. Is there an actual adjustment spec for this so that i can try to get it back to where it is supposed to be adjusted to? EE3A0C8E-F09D-4968-8A19-48AF46122943.jpeg

    The specification is a new throttle body.

    This sounds really dickish. It's not supposed to. I'm sorry for that. I dont think.your going to find a spec. If you do end up buying a new one, take this one apart and see what that bold does inside.

    Be really careful with that screw. To adjust it you really need to remove the motor and loose the nut inside first before adjusting there. Mine at least was plastic, and it snapped when I tried to make some adjustments after fixing a vacuum leak. Ended up making it worse and had to rush order a BBK replacement to get the car back into spec.

    Yea i got it better but it still isnt perfect. I have my bov’s vented and its still psh psh psh with light throttle. I always drove it with a bov or with the stock ones vented and it never did it before. It would psh but only when i left off. Now it still pulses, do the aftermarket larger ones replace that whole assembly? And if so...do you sell them??

    the only commercially availabe throttle body is from BBK, it's 70mm compared to the 62mm stock. Didn't make much of a difference even with my mods, but yes I do offer them.

    The psst psst psst is just the electronic valve control. Its set from the factory to vent any time throttle drops below a certain threshold which unfortunately is daily driver status and you hear it a lot more with the bovs vented.

    I just priced on with tasca and ford parts giant and 130-150$ for a oem one is not bad. Seeing how mine is still original with me messing with it. I might as well buy a new one also and see if if helps.

    Edit
    And thanks for being honest and saying it dosnt do much because with my car knowledge i didnt think a larger one would without the rest of the intake being made larger before it. I know on N/A they make a difference but not much with all the plumbing before it
