Nobody here will recommend them for the Hemi at least. Spend your money on a mod that actually does some good.

I agree with RootBeer, I had one on my 02 QC 4x4 and didn't see any increase anywhere, big waste of my money. I would save a little more and do a CAI or chip..

I had one that came with the brute force intake and it didn't do a thing. The only usefull thing that I can see you using it for is if you were going to drill and tap it and install nitrous through it. Otherwise save your money and buy a good cai and/or a programmer. I have both a diablo sport predator and just got the new composite BFI and am very happy with both. I was gonna sell my brute force intake to another member but they have yet to get back to me. If they don't get back to me in the next day or so and you want to try the tb spacer for yourself I'll give it to you if you will pay the postage! That way you can see for yourself without dropping 130.00. I just wanted to have the spacer with the intake it came with if someone were to buy it, but if it is not sold then you are more than welcome to it. I was gonna sell him the whole setup cai with spacer for 65.00 shipped to him.

Been there, done that. Could have spent the money on a more effective mod.

Get a programmer.

Throttle body spacers on a Hemi is like being a Democrat, someone might try to convince you it's a good reason, but don't do it!

I have one and it is now a paperweight in the shop. Really took away from my performance.
