    From what I read and hear, Throttle Body Spacers are instant HP gain with no downside, if that's true why doesn't everyone run them? For under $200 I'd think it'd be the first thing a guy adds... Any thoughts or feedback?

    Gray wire, Some lights in the bed area, and some character marks throughout.
    Worthless in the Toyotas. Best used as a paper weight.

    They are a waste of money. I have never seen data to prove they are any good. And many articles talking about how much of a waste of money they are.

    Wow, you guys are all wrong. It works like this: the TBS removes money from your wallet thus making you lighter in weight. Being lighter in weight, you unleash hidden HP from the motor. You guys need to start thinking.................
