I work at the water treatment plant just before the Horseshoe Curve. And thanks for the answersTitanBlue said:Truck has at least 3 brains, it ought to know the words!
TBS is Throttle Body Spacer. An Aluminum block, 1" thick, placed between the TB and the Intake Tube It usually has a large thread in the middle, causing a swirling action of the airflow. Mostly at mid range, it increase HP and TQ by about 10. Heliix and AirAid PowerAid are the most popular for the Titan.
Hooray for Altoona, my Dad was from Tyrone. My wife and kids and I went to Altoona a couple years ago for the big Fourth of July Celebration at Horseshoe curve. I think it was the 100th or 150th Anniversary of HS Curve.
The general consensus is yes. The theory is that the TBS creates a swirling/helix affect on the air, and the screen just breaks the flow back up. That just cancels out the benefit of the TBS...pi3yeargrad said:Is this true? How bout in combo with the TBS?? Are u supposed to take off the stock screen when installin a TBS?
