    I was just looking into them too, but i completely dropped the subject after reading about them. If you search LS1.com under "throttle body spacers", there will be a thread that will give u the answer called just that. They tell you its useless and they even give the reason for it. I had to agree with them. Don't waste your money on it.

    What if you combine it with a Tornado?

    They are great if you drill a hole in it and run your nitrous to it.

    Like the others said, don't waste your money on this! I bought one of these for my Vette and there was absolutely no real difference in my HP numbers after the install (it was slightly lower in some parts of the power band).

    They've already done that. There are several vids of people doing that on streetfire. A civic gained like 40rwhp with a leaf blower breathing down the intake.

    We did 7 different cars on the dyno with the Tornado because a rep for the company wanted to shoot some footage...... EVERY FREAKING ONE LOST POWER!!!! We did carbed..... Inj..... and even 2 imports. On a average they lost 4-6 hp.

    Gotta love an intake restriction as cool as the tornado.

    ......... Had to put Gods gifts in here! But YES that large of a restriction is a problem spinning or not.
