Hey all.

Im a new user here. Have recently purchased a 2003 BA falcon and have the chance to buy a performance throttle body for cheap (not 100% sure on model). Im just wondering if you need to change anything on the computer or does anything else need to be changed after i put it on? Will it bolt straight on? Or once i connect it it will stop the car from running?

I know this is probably a stupid question but i dont want to take any risks as i know these cars are full of computers.

Thanks for your help

No, bolting the throttle up won't make the car stop running, but like all BA's etc, to get the best out of the modification it would be advisable to get a tune.

Throttle body is one of the last things you need to worry about performance wise, do exhaust, extractors, intake and cams then worry about the t/b.

Thanks all. The only reason i would be putting it on because its cheap from a mate. As long as it wont stop the car from running its all good.
