JLT CAI with Steeda spacer, or BBK CAI and BBK throttle body?

Hello everyone,

This time I have a preference/ performance question for you guys. I was wondering which of these two combos (JLT CAI & Steeda spacer or the BBK CAI & throttle body combo) will generate more power, performance, quality, and a deeper tone to the exhaust. I'm sure both are grey combos, however I'm trying to decide which is the bet option for me. Any help, opinions, or advise is appreciated.

Thank you,

Aventador97

Why not go JLT Cold air and BBK throttle body? BBK cold air isn't as good, and throttle body spacers are nearly useless

That would be perfect, but the JLT is 84mm and the BBK throttle body is 70mm

What's your point? If you're using tb spacer you'd be using stock tb which is 60mm. I just look at the dyno test results from AM and JLT provides biggest gains. AM wouldn't alter test results to favour certain brands would they? Hehehe

I thought that the different sizes would cause issues?

CAI's can mate up to stock throttle bodies which are smaller in diameter than BBK's. the size won't cause issues, however JLT's CAI requires a tune

The throttle body spacer is a nice paperweight, but not a performance addition.

The BBK throttle body has been a source of problems on many of the 4.0 owners who tried it. Most end up removing it. Different story on the 3.7, but for some reason the 4.0 doesn't seem to work with it well.

I haven't heard anything negative about it, what have you heard concerning the BBK throttle body? I also have decided against the throttle body spacer
