    I installed one of those throttle body spacers and I swear I felt an increase in power. Slight, and perhaps it was the power of suggestion, but I think it's there.
    But there's no replacement for displacement.

    it seems that everyone rags on tbs because of a couple reasons.1. no hp gain 2. no torque gain. both of these are true in efi engines, no disputing that. BUT some (and im saying some because im still skeptical) people have reported that it does help out and i THINK and have read that it changes the torque curve through the rpm range so it MAY make a difference for SOME people. maybe when im done payin my lift off ill take the plunge and get one, either waste 100 bucks or feel a SLIGHT difference

    Take the tailgate off and mount two JATO rockets in the bed using the bed bolts. Make sure you have enough clearance with the vehicle behind you before you light them off.
