Throttle Body Spacers?
 
Do throttle body spacers really help? Our are they just a waste of money?

Hold on guys, TB spacers make nice whistling sounds. Kinda like a SC. That's gotta be worth $50?

Dont knock it till you've tried it.
 
Im asumming those that have negative comments about the tb spacer have at one point installed it before, and those with positive comments like myself have had them installed aswell.
I guess you'll have to install it to find out.
Hey it worked for me n I love it. Goodluck.

I'm pretty sure I've seen horsepower TV episodes where engines where dyno'ed using spacers and were actually shown to increase power in certain applications. All depends on your engine and setup. As for our trucks I cannot say. The bottom line is that spacers are not a "bolt on performance mod," but rather a "tuning tool" IMO

True what moparfreakloz says. Increasing intake runner length is a tuning tool used a lot.

I've never gotten anything out of a TB spacer that amounted to much personally but I do know they have practical applications for some engine configurations.
