    don't waste your $$. A tb spacer wont do much if anything. Spend that same $$ on a lid if you don't already have one.

    Someone should make a list with all the 'gimmick' parts out there that don't do poop for our cars and make it a sticky.

    Send me your money.
    I will put on my buffalo head dress and speedo's.
    I will dance around the pasture chanting in German to give your car more HP.
    This will be more effective than that POS.

    Seriously...a ported and polished throttle body gives you better gains......really.

    I would send you money to NOT do that.

    Would you prefer; personal check, cashier's check, money order, or cash?

    Ive actually said that a while ago, but I wanted GMHTP magazine to do a real dyno proving article.

    It was a thread where the "tornado" was mentioned.

    Spacers work for carbed engines where the fuel is mixed above them. They don't do anything for throttle bodies.

    Agreed. Don't waste your time with this!

    I installed one on my Corvette and took it off after only a few days!

    Holy crap those things are $90+ thats insane. I never really looked at them before cause I knew they were crap but I really thought they were like $30-$40.

    Seriously, there's better stuff out there. I did the throttle body bypass one weekend just to kill time, it only gave me like 3hp, but it was easy & cheap (only like $5.00 for parts at Home Depot). I think that made more of a difference than a stupid $90.00 Spacer would.

    P.S. - People sell ported & polished TB's on here all the time for $90.00 - $120.00.
