    Will i have problems putting on a throttle body spacer on a K&N 77 Series cold air intake? Some people have told me that K&N and TBS dont mix to well, I have found a place that sells and installs TBS and was wondering if i would see any problems before purchasing and installing one

    Oh Yeah!!!
    Jhodge had it with his K&N for a while. He did not like the whistling though, LOL...

    It can get anoying, especially if you have an auto.

    I just took mine off. It was ok, got the Volant intake now, and it did not fit at all. And I was not cutting up a 300 + $$$ intake for a $100 spacer.

    Heres my FS thread, and do not pay someone to install, it take like 10 min, maybe 20 if it's your first time to install.

    I titled it street performaance, but the make is Helix...

    Yup. I love it. Not as loud as XDI, but pulls harder. Oh yeah:D

    do what you want, but i used to be on a forum for another vehicle where several companies made different models of a tbs claiming all sorts of hp gains. Someone called them out on it. Then he made a non stop movie of him dynoing without the car. shutting the car off. installing the part. the dynoing again. lost 8 hp. He didnt cut any of the movie so he could prove he didnt tamper with anything. The guy admitted to being a fraud, and now he's out of business

    :D LOL, yeah it's whistling dixie by now...

    +1, I will not lie to anyone, It did nothing for me except maybe a little bit of punch at low end, which is the so called throttle respose gain. But, I read that might be true but may compromise top end. Anyhow I dont need it anymore. Happy with my Volant:D

    But hey, if someone wants to try it, and dont mind a whistling sound, dont spend any more, take mine off me; it's taking up too much room in the garage LOL:cool:

    Autoanything had a good price, not sure if still available. Use your TW coupon.

    Just remember, only thing I can back up is Temps. No proven gains. Unless you want to trust my X Guage: 345 HP @ 5000 RPM,105 MPH in 4th Gear This is supposed to be at the flywheel. Highly doubt it.

    Finally finding a spot to open my baby up all the way was priceless. Now back to driver improvement training:eek:
