Has anyone tried these throttle body spacers?

Hey guys I know the throttle bodies are a minimal gain if any but I've been looking at reviews on the throttle body spacers and it seems most the reviews are pretty good. Anyone have experience or thoughts about the spacers?

I had a SR performance spacer on my 2010 v6 and noticed ZERO performance gain. The only noticeable change was in the intake sound you could hear an audible whistle upon acceleration giving the "appearance" of performance gain.

If you want the whistle go for it it was pretty neat but don't expect any real hp gain.

It doesn't do anything to your car.

Why don't you read the reviews on the site from people who have bought it? Most ppl one here probably have never run one and are just going to say what they read somewhere else from another guy who did the same.... Just sayin..

There are many on this site who have paid for, and installed these on their Mustangs (various engine displacement sizes) and have reported little or no gain. My guess is that they simply are no longer around this site, or have not seen this thread, or maybe they just don't respond to these types of threads anymore.

In any event, give the search a try. Search on throttle body spacers.

A big NO! Perhaps they might be considered an appearance mod but certainly NOT a performance mod.

These have been around for over 35 years............and in all the real world testing by knowledgeable people they are a total waste of money and time..................they don't do anything!
But it's your car...........if you believe all of these people's reviews, by all means give it a try.

I had one throttle
Body spacer. I bought it when I was 17 and out it on my Silverado because I was working minimum wage and it claimed get you better mpgs. It did nothing for power nor mpg so it was a total waste. I will add to what th other guy said, it did make a whistling sound, although very low sounding, while driving past 1/2 throttle.
