Stock SVT Focus Throttle Body
About 70mm inner Diameter

Could I use it on my 97 v8??

I have one in my garage, someone gave it to me. Might sell it if I can't use it.

I am ready for the "you stupid A$$" comments! So Bring IT!!

takes longer to get the damn air tube off :)

and even longer to remove the TPS pigtail without breaking the clip

Nah, the pigtail's not tough, but the TPS sensor screws are. Best way that I found to get those screws out is to wrap the throttle in a rag a few times to pad it up, lock it in a vise, put the screw driver to them, hold it, and smack the screw driver straight down with a hammer. Give the screws 4 or 5 good schwacks, the screws will come right out.

I cannot use this item, without modification, the throttle cable does not work with it. Oh Well, off to Ebay it goes.

Let me guess, the little silver drum deal on the end of the throttle cable won't fit? I had the same problem with my TB (98 GT), so I just found a drill bit that most closely matched the barrels size, and it worked like a charm. I want to say 19/64 was it? But, either way, hardly any material was removed and it worked fine.
