Throttle Body Spacer????
I was wondering who has installed a throttle body spacer on there truck, and what (if any) kinde of improvements have occured. Im trying to get an idea, because some say thay actually work and some say its a scam. i understand the concept, but was looking for more of a review from someone who had a 5.7L ram 1500.....thank you

a spacer under a carburetor allowed the spray from the jets to fan out more into a mist
with fuel injection it doesn't do anything, except make some noise

so no actual gain? the most reacuring reply to this question is that you see the gain in low end Tq. Have you tried this?

GTyankee 10-25-2012 03:10 AM

several members tried it, even did dyno runs with & without it
no gain, just a whistle sound

here is what members said about it

dang. i guess you really cant expect anything for $50. thanks do you have any suggestions for some quick and cheap Hp? i was thinking of making a CAI, (the right way of course) I dont see the reason for spending $300 when i can buy they crome piping and weld together a box for less than $100.

click on the image of the Ram trucks found at the top of every page
then scroll down to the different year Rams & the mods

Without starting a discussion, don't bother with grounding your TB either. Grounding the TB falls into the same category as the spacer and "tornado". or cyclone, cyclopse or whatever that electric supercharger thingy is. Oh and those $69 "chips" wont give you 3-5mpg increase and up to 80hp.....or whatever they claim.

The ShamWow works better than TB spacers....a lot better.

hahaha..The shamwow works on everything! 10-25-2012 04:34 PM

As far as best bang for your buck I would suggest using that throttle body spacer $$ and putting it towards a tuner. I see you created another thread looking into tuners and honestly I would go that route instead of a spacer.
