Another Flyin'Ryan Throttle Body installed!

My 5.7 Hemi is breathing easier with a certified pre-owned Flyin'Ryan PTB! This might have been one of the easiest installations that I've performed on the Jeep - disconnect the Volant from the TB, 8MM socket wrench on the 4 bolts, that's it!

I don't know if there is anything that I can mention about the effects that wasn't already covered in moosehead's original PTB post. The engine feels like it has a bit more pep for sure, but my butt dyno isn't calibrated enough to pick up on anything more than that. My opinion is that every little bit helps. Plus, no idling issues or CEL!

Here are a couple pics to prove it happened:

Ready for the new TB -



New vs Old. Can your eyes spot the difference?



Almost done...



Done. Except for the annoying engine cover that I had to punch to make it snap into place.





By the way, I've got an OEM 5.7 Hemi throttle body for sale if anyone is interested.

Re: Another Flyin'Ryan Throttle Body installed!

Nice. Post back after driving a week or so. The wall looks pretty thin now. Are you afraid of clamping down the intake tube too tight?

No way - it's still sturdy.


I did a lot of driving today and am very pleased with my new mod. Although subjective, I felt like the throttle response was much improved. It even seemed like acceleration was more robust, but that could just be wishful thinking.

Regardless, as far as inexpensive bolt-ons go, this one is a keeper.

Re: Another Flyin'Ryan Throttle Body installed!

But honestly, I can't tell the difference. I'm an fng so excuse my question. What size is the stock one vs the new one???? I'm looking into an 85 mm purchase myself

Re: Another Flyin'Ryan Throttle Body installed!

The Hemi TBs I do are 85+ mm at the edge of the inlet, tapering to the 80mm blade. The backside tapers to 87mm.

Glad you like it.
