    Hello all.
    I was looking for some new toppings for my taco
    Thinking maybe a throttle body spacer would be a nice addition
    They seem cheap/easy to install

    My question is. Does anyone have the afe spacer on there rig? If so how do you like it. Notice any change in HP. Or fuel consumption

    Or does anyone have other brands of spacer to recommend ?

    Cheers
    Savoy

    Ya I just read 3 threads trashing them. Paper waits basically ?
    Shitty deal. Cause I heard they were good to add about 6-8 extra HP

    they do NOTHING for fuel injected vehicles, they just make your intake more noisy

    old thread i know but just wanted to thank all of you for your input, was just about to buy a TBS to compliment the AFE Pro Dry S air filter i just picked up and decided to google its performance gains (if any) before i spent the money. Guess i'll be saving that $50
