The throttle body is one of the components in your intake system that is located between the intake manifold and the air filter. You can also find it close to the mass airflow sensor. Throttle body works in controlling the amount of air that will flow along the engine system. It also has a sub component called the throttle plate that works in regulating the flow of air. This throttle plate is also called butterfly valve which is located inside the throttle body.
Typically the throttle body has a pair of flaps that closes and opens every time the pedal is pressed. This pedal connects itself to the throttle cable which activates the link that connects from the throttle body to move the throttle plate. Some throttle body that comes with larger size actually has the advantage of transmitting more air which will greatly improve the throttle response as well as power. A throttle body could also improve your vehicle's exhaust. Stock exhaust may function minimal, but with a throttle body, especially with the BBK throttle body, expect your car's exhaust system to function at its best.
Maintaining the throttle body is also the key essential for achieving the maximum performance of your vehicle. One helpful idea is to lubricate the throttle body that will allow its action to run in a smooth manner. And since the throttle body is prone to dirt, this idea therefore can be a great aid in preventing the dirt from adhering along its surface. But of course, if you are experiencing some trouble with the throttle body, the only solution that you must do is replacement. And the BBK throttle body is a perfect choice for you.
