Anyone else's tb spacer whistles?
 
Is there anyone that has a tb spacer that whistles? lol mines only whistles between 1700-2500 RPM approx. Evryone I talk to that has one say theirs doesnt whistle. At one point I thought I had a air leak, bad gasket on spacer or loose tb bolts but they all check out fine.

I don't think i've ever heard a throttle body spacer that doesn't whistle. I know mine does it also from about 1500-2500 rpm's.

Woooohooo
 
WTH? really! what a relief! did you feel any slight gains with it?

I've never used one, but my friends ford has one and it whistles too. I've heard that TB spacers are kinda useless, but I've never had one on my truck.

I put my K&N CAI on at the same time with the TB spacer so I can't say for sure if it improved performance or not. I know there mainly used for guys who run nitrous set ups. I kind of like the whistle it has to it, a lot of people think it's a turbo under the hood.

I'm wondering if you have found any benefit in having the spacer? Most feel its a waste of $$.

I Cant believe ppl say its a waste of $$$
 
I definitely feel a diffrence when I open her up when rolling 45-55mph and jump to 85-95 faster than before. Its not a huge gain but like I said before its a step in the right direction!

Oh, I bet it would definitely help with a ported throttle body. It'll really get that air and fuel moving
