Sorry to be a total noob, but where exactly does the spacer go on the throttle? It's kinda crammed between the top of the engine, at least on the '94-00/01 from what I've seen...

between the throttle body and the intake manifold, it makes for a really tight fit with my CAI(had to wrestle with it), id imagine that stock airbox would fit fine tho

Hmmm, doesn't sound like it would fit with my cold air. Too bad, this seems like a cool mod.

all seemed to work out well; great response. at the mid and upper end there is a point after 3300rpms or so that the truck feels like its gonna start to fly, compared to before, but i try not to do that to my daily driver too much.

I however, had the dumb idea of putting 35" tires on a stock rear diff and now have no torque at freeway speeds, need to put 4.11 gears on it.
