    Yeah...Problem with them is newer engines compensate for the minimal increase in airflow.

    Not worth the money...

    Spend the money on something else or, better yet, don't spend it and put it away for a rainy day.

    I'll put it this way: If you're doing it because you like to mod and do it as a hobby, go for it. But as for any big gains, no.

    Now, I'm no expert on the 2.7 so hopefully someone who has modded one will come along and help you out. But I guarantee you someone will say you should've gotten the V6 if you want more power (shit, did I just say it myself?) but I just assume you have the truck you want already.

    Save your pennies for the alpine superCharger if you really want some noticeable gains

    They dont give any "Increase" in airflow.. The theory behind them is to straighten the air flow, or "swirl" the air flow, thus giving better atomization of the fuel. Since manufactures have been designing tuned intake tracts that keep air velocity high, and cumbustion chambers that swirls the intake charge at high velocity, TB spacers have become nothing more than paper weights, or noise makers. Some can hurt performance, as they initiate a "Swirl" into an air stream that is designed to be smooth, and when the intake charge gets to the CC, it cannot propperly mix, and can create "Hot spots" in the CC which can cause all sorts of problems. I.e., Lean mixture, burned pistons, etc. If you have a carburated engine, they work, but they do nothing on todays fuel injected, tuned intake engines.
