throttle body spacer

Has anyone tried using the air raid throttle body spacer? I just put a 3" lift on and want to try and improve power and fuel mileage. Any feed back would be great.

I can't speak for the 4 cyl engines, but I know for the 4.0L because it utilizes variable length runners, a TBS won't provide hardly any gains. Look up ACIS for the 1GRFE for more details on that.

yeah the most it will do is add a whistle to your engine. Youd be better off just buying a MAF sensor calibrator from URD. best way to go IMO

Thanks! I think I'll just save the money and buy a performance chip.

Dito... There aren't any 'chips' available for the trucks per say.. To tune the AFR for a safer/more powerful ratio the URD Maf Cal is a great way to do it.
