    Anyone had any experience with them? I just put one on my tacoma earlier today. Hoping it might give me a little more power..

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Yeah I installed a K&N CAI and a Helix tower power throttle body spacer and I seen some nice gains above 3500rpm. Get the spacer you wont regret it.

    The spacer does you no good. If you search about them here most people who had them will say its just an expensive paperweight.

    That's why I picked up the plastic intake and not the flashy aluminum one.

    I don't know what spacer the other guys are putting in there not all the same like some think.
    The Helix tower power is Dino proven My buddy works at a hot rod shop in Sacramento that has a Dino. He installed the same spacer I have on a 02 4runner and got a little over 8hp gains at 4400 with a stock air box. Now not all of us rev up that high but it's nice to know you have if you need it.

    It's your choice I personally think $100 bucks is worth it.

    And another thing before i installed the CAI and the spacer I averaged 18mi per gal now I'm at about 21mi per gal that right there is worth $100 bucks.

    If you run with your headlight out it might do something.

    To much to list!
    Save your money on the short ram intake and throttle body spacer. You gain little to no performance. If you want an intake. I say go to Airaid and see if they make a Modular intake tube for your truck. Or look into something that uses a complete airbox. I have a Modular intake tube and deckmod with a decent filter. Seems to be the best setup I have come up with for my truck 3.4l v6.
