Throttle body spacer

Is the Air Raid throttle body spacer really worth it on a 2008 toyota tacoma 4.0??

Don't waste your money on it unless you need it to prop your door open on a hot summer day.

A guy made a thread about it. He didn't see gains so he sold it. What do you think it does to help the engine make more power? I want to know what people think it actually does.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Now i don't know about the Air Raid but my buddy Dyno'd a 02 4runner with a Helix tower power with a stock air box and gained a little over 8hp at 4400rpm.

That might be the reason people don't think they do anything 8hp ain't much.
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

Even if this was the case for the 2nd gen Tacoma, what is 8hp extra going to do for me at 4400rpm? That's almost at the top of my power band.

You're missing the point. You have to stack them, so 5 would give 40 ponies.
