Throttle body spacer help!

Anyone have any experience with a throttle body spacer on a aftermarket throttle body? The only guides i can find are for stock throttle bodies. I can't figure out how to install the throttle extension.

Are you talking about the throttle cable/peddle spacer or the intake spacer

Really the only things I have left are all expensive. I was trying to do something that was fairly easy and cheap to see how much I could out of it before I did something drastic.

Just start putting money aside for something big. Once you have that no need to get anything else but maybe cams or save more for a vortech

I got a new 90mm MAF, underdrive pulleys and that spacer. See is maybe I can get some more horses from her. My dream would be a whipple but mine didn't come with it and I'm not that rich.

I didn't have trouble with anything. They should supply you with longer bolts for the manifold and everything lined up perfectly. if you still have an egr it's hard to pull it up higher to bolt on but you can do it. But I would do and egr delete too. adds like 3 horsepower and it saves some weight plus the throttle body spacer there should be a bi

.1 in the 60 foot is like .4 in the quarter. I think that's driving style or just a good start

I got an airaid throttle body spacer and I cant tell a difference, however, mine is pretty much stock so there wasn't really a point to do what I did. now the install of the product was easy as hell tho the company provided everything in the package including instructions were just thrown to the side because its pretty self explanatory.

It's nothing you'll notice at all only a time slip will show you a very small gain

I think the only reason I am having problems with mine is because I have an aftermarket intake manifold and throttle body so it's a little different

That's wired I figured with even being aftermarket they should still bolt up the same unless the openings are larger but still idk I guess but good luck brother
