Throttle Body Spacers helped greatly with CARBURETOR engines

here is the best explanation about them that i could find

These spacers mainly benefit older engines. In particular, those with fuel injection systems that have the fuel go directly into the throttle body, where it then mixes with air before going into the combustion chamber. It also can help with carburetor systems.

However, if the vehicle has a multi-port fuel injection system or other top of the line system, then that small change in the air vortex will not make any difference to the performance, torque or horsepower.
Therefore, before you go out and purchase a spacer, make sure your engine can actually benefit from having this upgrade.

im glad these forums are on here cause there is a lot of snake oil for sale out there already saved me a ton of money on here by doing some simple reasearch and from what ive seen so far with the ram is unless you throw a supercharger on these hemis or cams or other big time engine mods the gains u get are minimal if none existant with most of these little but costly mods so if u really want more hp drop thousands of dollars and void yor factory warranty i have come to the conclusion (for me) im not dropping 1000 dollars on cai tuner headers and what not for maybe at the most a hunderd hp for me a drop in filter and mufflex 14" are all im doin to each his own though and yes horsepower is an addiction and like its ben said before speed costs money how fast u wanna go?

Drop in filters produce more throttle response but not much horsepower. Speed costs money is a relative term. Horsepower is not an addiction unless you're in need of a "Fix".

tb spacers do work...with a little modification Some cai's will come with them because it helps with the actual fitment. I kept mine in my toolbox for years before I thought to try this
