So I just received my new Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer from AutoAnything. The spacer goes for less than $130.
While this isn't an overly complicated install, I figured this would at least give me a chance to work on my write-up skills!!
Before I begin, please read the following disclaimer-- This write-up is only to show how I performed this install. I am not an experienced technician, therefore my advice may not be completely true. This write-up also is not intended to treat any illnesses, including, but not limited to, smallpox, chickenpox, AIDS, HIV, Hepatitises (A, B, or C), Yellow Jaundice, any kind of rash, or anal leakage.
I am starting with a K&N already installed. So if you have the stock intake still on, there's a bit more disassembling to do.
1. (Obviously) Disconnect negative side of battery.
2. Remove the air hose from the throttle body assembly.
3.Remove the 4 bolts that hold the throttle body to the intake.
4. This is the throttle body spacer. The instructions say to mount it with the Flow arrow pointing towards the intake. However, there is no Flow arrow. Instead, there is an impression of the words "T.B. Side" (Throttle Body Side). This is the side that mounts against the throttle body. (Whoda thunk??)
5. Put the gasket in between the "T.B. Side" of the spacer and the air intake hose.
6. Using the longer bolts that come with the spacer, mount the throttle body back onto the intake.
7. DON'T FORGET TO REATTACH THE NEGATIVE LEAD ON THE BATTERY!!
When finished, should look something like this...
I have not had enough time to verify the 4mpg claim the package makes (Anyone want to bet me that it will??). The only thing I have noticed thus far is a cool whistling noise. Stay tuned for updates!!
