I had a BBK 90mm throttle body and spacer installed and now have my engine light on. Is this common because of having to disconnect the battery? 2011 ram 1500 5.7 L Hemi

That 90mm throttle body is probably going to be way too big unless you already have some serious engine work already done. Even the 85mm throttle bodies are only recommended for trucks with cams, superchargers, etc. Also, throttle body spacers are pretty much useless unless your running nitrous. I don't mean to sound negative but I think you would be far better off with a Fastman ported throttle body.
