Throttle Body Spacers

So I was thinking about installing a throttle body spacer when I swap my intake manifold this weekend, but I am confused as to what the difference is between:

The Stack Throttle Body Spacer on AmericanMuscle.com

Vs

The AirAid Throttle Body Spacer kit at the local parts store

???

Good call. I researched all afternoon and that's kind of what I figured. Amazing they would hype them up online to give "proven 7 whp" gains when they have very little to do with the actual airflow and throttle response....

Re: Throttle Body Spacers

the best that one could hope for would be a nice whistling sound at high revs. That about it, wish they did really work tho

Re: Throttle Body Spacers

Put it this way, when me and my buddy went to install his CAI on his 01 GT, we took the t/b spacer off from the former owner so the CAI would fit...
