Don't get me wrong i agree with on that one I don't ever hit 4400rpm i just wanted to point out that there is gains on the 3.4's i don't know if there is any gains on the 4.0's.

From the other forums I have been reading no one has gained anything on the 4.0's but i have yet to find Negative Dyno results on the 3.4's all i have to go by in my Friend that was a hot rod mechanic that told me about the spacer and the gains he seen with the 3.4

Now he could be full of shit I don't know i contacted him and told him there is a lot of guys out there that say this thing is crap.
He told me he will look for the test sheet and he will get back to me.

i personally have a Helix on my 02 3.4 and i like it.

But if you really wont to feel some power gains get a supercharger.

That's my 2c

I have tested them on the 3.4, and saw 0 gain. None. Nothing. I even went so far as to have Airaid (just one example) tell me I was "Dyno'ing the TB spacer wrong". WHich turned out to be BS.

As am I. Too many people have dynoed these things on FI engines, and have seen no gain. Just a wistle sound.

Is a whistle sound not a gain? Technically it did not whistle before hand, so you gained a whislting sound.

Well Maybe my buddy is full of shit if he can't produce a Dyno sheet the these results then i'm going to have to join you all and say these things are peaces of shit and don't buy them.

I was taking his word for it but if your saying you got nothing that makes me wonder if he's blowing smoke up my ass.

Hell I even have time to return the thing if I want.

Quiet is not tangible. Quiet is the absence of sound, you cannot lose that which is not there. Your testing in invalid. Whistle gain FTW!

Aw yes I should go shave down my own custom billet spacers that whistles louder than all of them and sell it as the Turbo Spacer. Just throw a dirty sock over my intake and dyno and dyno again without the sock. Just for kicks I'll make a youtube video so you can hear how loud my baby whistles. Everyone will want one and I won't have to bartend to pay for school.

I think that the throttle body spacer really DOES work. I mean, look at these meaningless charts!
