I know but I wanted to know the difference between CAI and NO CAI. <3

In response to the spacer with a CAI and bigger throttle body, would the spacer help with airflow because of more volume? Or would it restrict the airflow because the hole is smaller than the 70mm throttle body? Any idea?

Yeah you can only have a spacer with the stock throttle body because with a larger aftermarket one you're pushing 70mm of air into a 65mm opening...but I wouldn't recommend a larger throttle on the 4.0 at all for that reason until somebody comes up with an adapter plate to mate the 70mm tb to the 65mm opening in the intake manifold!

Can you explain in a bit more detail why getting the BBK throttle body on AM would be a bad idea for '05-09 V6's please?

Ok so the intake manifold has a 65mm opening, so the stock throttle body is 65mm...the BBK is 70mm so they mate up correctly and you'll have a larger throttle body feeding into a smaller hole which will restrict airflow and cause massive amounts of turbulence which kills horsepower

So why are people reviewing it as a great item and praising it for the horsepower then?

Would porting the intake help?

Yeah but idk how much room is available to port on the intake opening where it mates to the throttle body. I don't know if there is a safe 5mm to bore out
