Default Ford 84.5mm tb and Accufab 84.5mm tb

Ive been getting a little bit of flack for wanting to install an accufab 84.5mm throttlebody over the ford unit. Just because its not stamped ford, is not a good enough reason for the accufab unit to be cheap and unreliable. Lets take a look at the two throttlebodies and maybe someone can educate me.

What other mods are you planning??
switching out to a different TB, will give you next to nothing in gains for the $$$ spent, unless you're planning on running a BOSS or CJ intake, or switching to an FI setup or turbos.

Wouldn't really worry about a TB until you're over 550 HP, then find one thats bundled with the upgrade you are planning

UMMMM hello, who do you think makes it for FRPP, they make all the throttle bodies for FRPP. If you do an internet search you can find the FRPP unit for the same price or clse to it as the Accufab model. Assuming you're talkign about the price Accufab has listed on their site for $595 free shipping.
