Has anyone tried to install a stock GT500 60mm throttle on a 4.6 3V 2005/2009? I dont have the money for a 62mm Ford Racing throttle body.

Blow By Racing sells an adapter plate so you can use the GT500 T B on a 4.6. It's about $80 I believe.

L&M Airflow Systems has a 62mm TB direct bolt on that flows 1500CFM supports 1000hp.No other 62mm TB comes close.

For the money, the GT500 TB isn't a bad upgrade. However, you definitely need the adapter plate to make it a simple install.
