VMP Super Monoblade 163R Throttle Body for 18+ 5.0 L


VMP Super Monoblade 163R Throttle Body for 18+ 5.0 L

  • Industry exclusive - works on 18+ Mustang GT 5.0l and 18+ F150 5.0l

  • NO ADAPTER BOX required, avoid the expense and issues

  • Comes assembled and tested with the factory digital electronics

  • Elliptical Monoblade design provides for a combination of high flow and tune-ability

  • Recommended for power adder applications in the 1000+rwhp range

Size and fitment:

  • Based on the GT500 bolt-pattern

  • Opening shape is based on the VMP Gen3R supercharger

  • Elliptical blade measures 82mm tall x 153mm wide

  • Elliptical shape is easier to tune than most throttle bodies this large

  • The “163“ designation signifies the surface area of the opening.  Measuring and naming throttle bodies by blade width does not accurately take into account size or flow potential, especially when the blade shape is not a true oval.  VMP has chosen to designate their line of monoblade throttle bodies by surface area in inches with one decimal place.


  • Recommended for custom applications only

VMP first introduced a digital twin blade throttle body design in early 2019.  To meet the demands of racers, we are extending our digital throttle body line to include two monoblade offerings.  The VMP 163R is designed to be large enough to make power, but not so large that the fly by wire electronics can not control the blade.  Monoblades often get a bad name, this happens when the throttle is too large for the application. The VMP 163R is very large and should only be used on high power applications where the extra size and flow is needed.  May require special tuning such as min throttle angle (.80*) and current limit increases. Recommended for heavily modified engines such as those with aftermarket camshafts. Increased lift and duration will reduce engine vacuum, making large throttle bodies much smoother and easier to tune.  May idle high (~900rpm) on stock camshaft engines.

In 2018 Ford switched over to a new electronic control system for the drive by wire throttle body.  This new system uses digital signals to control the throttle motor, rather than analog voltages as was done previously.  VMP’s line of throttle bodies are built with the same digital electronics found on 18+ Fords (designated by a J on the motor cover instead of an F).  Our throttle bodies include electronics, are tested, and set; all you have to do is bolt them onto the vehicle and load the proper tune. When a customer is left to install their own electronics on a throttle body the calibration process can be lengthy and difficult.    

Previously, the only way to get a high flowing GT500 style TB to work on an 18+ Mustang or F-150 was to use an expensive and problem prone throttle body adapter box.  Costing nearly $500, these boxes don’t result in a perfect translation from digital to analog, sometimes causing idle issues and failsafes. VMP’s throttle bodies with native digital electronics alleviates these issues.
