It probably will interfere with something, with the spacer in. you might have to modify the tube(cut it).

The spacer does nothing for our engine with the kegger intake. If you have an aftermarket like the M1 you could probably use it. Just need the intake.

Seeing how the engine needs a throttle body I would recommend keeping that in. haha. If you are referring to the spacer, than no. General consensus is that it is a waste of money and will do nothing in the department of performance. Unless you are planning on using nitrous in your engine, than there is no need for it.

maybe a larger throttle body. 53mm, like a fastman or something yeah. Your going to want a intake and exhaust for that if you go that route

I dont think the throttle body spacer would be any good, so if it interferes then take it off.

But ya a throttle body itself you need. Why not get a ported throttle body?
