throttle body spacer

Has anyone installed one of these? If yes are they worth the money?

I've heard super mixed reviews. Some people say they are a huge waste of money, others say it really helped a lot. So it depends car to car. I personally don't think it'd be worth the money

They have very minimal increases in power. Wouldnt get it unless you had quite a few other mods and a tuner

Ive been curious about the "claimed" low end torque and throttle response. I have a air raid CAI and borla axle back, as far as performance mods.

I have one, thought I'd save the money instead if buying a whole new throttle body. Didn't notice a difference, will still be buying a new throttle body.

I've got one also and didn't really notice a difference!.. A buddy of mine has a 1 & 1/2 inch one and said he noticed a big difference!.. But he also has a Super Charger pushing about 10lbs of boost!.. Me, I'm still NA!.. Lol

Re: throttle body spacer

Other than your lighter wallet it won't do anything for the car. This isn't like the old carburetor set ups where you put a spacer on to increase runner length to change the power band.

People who say it made a change are justifying the purchase. No one who says that has ever done a baseline dyno without the spacer and then put the spacer on and seen an increase in power.

Save your money.

My buddy with the SC had two different dyno tunes!.. One before and one after!.. About a 15hp difference!.. The do help but the only time you will see a noticeable difference is in a FI setup!..
