Throttle Body Spacer.....Worth It?

Alright Guys,

I have heard some controversy regarding throttle body spacers. It time to hear it straight from the horses mouth. Are they worth it?

Some ppl like them,some dont, If you wont mind a whistling noise then go for it, I was able to tell a small difference with it, also some ppl werent able to tell a difference, I dont mind the wistling, I like it most of the time but thats me. Search for some other threads on it and youll find many replies about them.

Re: Throttle Body Spacer.....Worth It?

Nope. Ithe AEM is just a CAI. You will have to buy one seperately. I dont think they even make one.

Re: Throttle Body Spacer.....Worth It?

they do make them, i'm sure of it. but when i bought mine from autoanything, it said it was included. and after the install, my buddy did it, i could hear the whistle that spacers make. maybe it doesn't but if we can get some clarification from someone on here, that would be great.

My AEM didn't come with one, nowhere in the instructions does it mention one. I also bought mine from autoanything. If he didn't pull the throttle body, then he didn't install a spacer. Some people have reported a whistle with the intake, but mine doesn't whistle.

Re: Throttle Body Spacer.....Worth It?

I say yes.

I have no actual data to back up the gains if any but I swear I felt a diff when I drove my truck, I also believe in the technology. As far as noise I can hear the whistle but it's muffled by my Volant CAI & Stillen exhaust.

I did have to mod the CAI somewhat & it's still a tight fit, may have to trim a little more.

Re: Throttle Body Spacer.....Worth It?

YES! One of the guys at the NC Meet saw an increase on the dyno. He installed it at the shop, and did before and after. Most cars at the track have TBS installed. Do the Screen delete, or you may not have the whistle, and defeat its purpose. Whistle is very faint, and only momentary.

AEM includes it with vehicles they think it is worthwhile on. They did not find enough increase on the Titan, to justify the increased expense. AEM does not include it. I have the PowerAid, for half the price, get a Helix off of Ebay. Or buy a used PowerAid (Much better looking). They don't wear out, so used is as good as new.

Re: Throttle Body Spacer.....Worth It?

The ones who say it works have faulty butt -dynos. Are real dyno cant see the diff. These are remnants from the carb'd days when a manifold needed more volume/ floor hight to allow a bigger carb to work correctly.
