Re: Does this really work?

throttle body spacers are worthless, do you really think it spinning the air up a tiny bit right before it goes down into all those runners is going to keep it spinning lol. The extra volume it adds is also worthless, just skip on it.

Re: Does this really work?

Agreed with all the above statements. Save the money and use it elsewhere man.

Put it this way, when my buddy bought his GT it had a t/b spacer on it. We took it out to put on the CAI...

If you gain 22hp and 25 tq from a 1" spacer, I think every sixer on this site would have one in their sig, lol. I'd like to get my car on that dynojet, seems to be the golden ticket
