Re: Just in

Not to knock this mod, but I think its a bit out of order unless your going with some boost soon/Now....Word on the street is Pully, gears, tune = better bang for the buck than a throttle body. Still a nice looking piece and I'm sure you'll gain a few hp.

Re: Just in

what exactly does the throttle body spacer do? Free up intake restriction? How many HP we talking about here?

Re: Just in

Re: Just in

when you get to around 300rwhp/tq the TB will help but the stock one will be fine up to around those levels, and to get any real help you need to port the upper intake tb opening to match it as its not that big. The spacer is worthless so just send it back

Glad to hear the tb went in ok. Headers can be a pain to do so just take your time and try not to get frusrated when you do them. I've been rocking sirius in my stang for a year now and I love it. You will definately enjoy the radio.

Re: Just in

yeah the install was easy took lots of pictures of you guys want I can do a write up. I wouldn't say more power, it 's more like it has better has bit more get up and go in the first half of the rpm range; and way better response from the pedal.

Most of my family has had XM/Sirrus for years. I commute every day to work and i hate changing CD's so i asked for a cd changer or XM/Sirrus. Ended up with the XM. And just after one day I love it.
