Throttle Body Spacer
 
Is it worth it??

moochman4life 02-08-2012 01:55 PM

Absolutely not. But be prepared for some other answers calling it a paper weight, and other stuff. This is a mod that if you get it and tell someone you have it and it's installed will get you clowned on. :)

So, you did the right thing by just asking if it's worth it and stating nothing else, hehe.

Turn in your man card for even THINKING about buying a spacer.

The claims are all hype and totally false. But they make nice Chritmas tree ornaments except people will get drunk and laugh at you. However, you can grab it off the tree and bean them with it. That's about all the joy...

my 2 cents...

no

save your money. and if you MUST do something, use that money for stripes, you'll see bigger hp gains. :D

Its been proven that the power they gain does not equal out the weight they add.

Yea...

Search the site for throttle body spacer, and let us know what you find

That's one of the complaints I have with the vendors. They sell these things knowing that it's no more useful than a turd.

If you drill a hole and tap it for an H2O/meth injection nozzle to go on the correct side of the throttle body, it's worth it.

Ford_Dude 02-09-2012 04:22 PM

What about if you tap it and do a wet n2o system?

I suppose that works too. Wasn't thinking about n2o. I've seen it done to TB spacers for h2o/meth on other applications, that's what made me think of it.

Seems like a really expensive alternative...?

i will add my 2 cents. I just installed a jerry's port and polished oem tb and along for the heck it installed a poweraid spacer. All i can say is OMG. My low end torque feels 100% incrrease. Dont really know how much if any is coming from spacer but i love the combo and recommend to all.

Good luck with that. I tried that in combination with the BAMA 93 race tune and it threw a wrench quite often. I wish I could have made that work, but AM/BAMA couldn't get it adjusted properly.

bama told me no adjustment required for the p and p tb. I am running a 93 race tune with a JLT 110 cai. perfect idle, extremely aggressive low-mid torque. This made a world of difference after i thought it could get no better.

I wish I had the same luck. I initially tried without any adjustments and the wrench lit up. Then we tried data logging the car a bunch of times and adjusting the tune, but still no luck. The longest it ran without issues was two days, and then the wrench lit up again. Jerry examined the part once it was returned and said it was fine. Not sure what the hell happened in my case. Must be the damn 4.0 v6. :-)

Most likely a bit of wishful thinking. You made a mod to the car so you are going to want to feel the difference.

My bama 93 race tune felt amazing in comparison to stock. Threw her on the dyno and it made less power then stock. I just wanted it to be better, but it wasn't.

Soldier GT 02-10-2012 05:53 PM

Those things are about the same as the turbonator.. massive HP at a small price.. Just kidding man... I have one becasue it was given to me some time ago. I totally agree it adds nothing (hp/tq wise) what so ever...

Wait... A tune gave you less HP than stock? Wat?
