Cool INSTALLED: Moe's 87mm Ported Throttle Body on 2013 Ram 1500

I was going to wait to install until my Vararam Air Grabber gets here in a few weeks, but I couldn't stare at this thing sitting on the workbench any longer. Some say I have a "disease". So early this morning I woke and got straight to work.

Install was a BREEZE! Took all of 20 minutes, and that was with a emergency coffee dump break. Disconnected the battery, removed the OEM intake tube and engine cover, unplugged the obvious plugs, removed the OEM throttle body, and slapped on Moe's, then put it all back together.



There is barely a difference in a side by side visual comparison of the two units. It's simply a OEM unit. You can see where the TB was bored to 87mm on the inside, but other than that I can't see the dealer, or anyone for that matter noticing any difference from stock unless they were looking for it.

So now for the test drive.... UN - BE - LEIVABLE!!! The throttle response is like it SHOULD be from the factory. Improved across ALL RPMs. And from a 20mph punch this thing creates a NOTICEABLE difference in the butt dyno even on 35" Trail Grapplers!! Who woulda thought this little mod would make such a incredible difference.

I've only got about 20 miles on it, but can honestly say this is a MUST HAVE MODIFICATION for ANY Ram owner. 100% happy with the results and super thankful for Matt @ Moe's Performance and his STELLAR customer service.

Can't wait to get the Vararam on and hopefully a tuner sooner than later to really unleash this beast's potential.

Oh, and I forgot to add, of course I opted to protect my investment. BT Catch Can also installed.

Nice setup. I would most likely add the 87TB also if I wasn't putting money into a new boat. Keep us updated as you add mods.

You really found a difference with the TB? I have been hearing it was a waste, glad to see someone took the chance and installed it. Good write up!

Definitely noticeable. I've got the magnaflow 14 also, if that matters. Hoping for even better gains w vararam, tuner, and eventually a set of headers.

Catch can catches all the oil that gets sprayed back into the intake. Go pull your throttle body and you'll see what I'm talking about. My truck only has 2500 miles on it and the back of the throttle body had a good amount of residue on it.

The TB lets more air in the intake in a since helping the engine "breathe". Google Moe's Preformance for more info.

Default Extraordinary upgrade and thread

You'll notice an increase in mpg's very shortly. I did the same mod to my SRT4 and I easily get 30 mpg.
You'll find even more throttle response, breathing, high altitude performance, quieter interior etc - when you put on the aftermarket air intake.
This is a must do for RAM people.
Freeway passing improves along with higher speeds on the freeway.

You had me worried for a second, then i realized the SRT4.... You can't say 30 mpg's in the Ram forums without a big ol' BS flag coming out!
