    I bought one before I was a part of this forum. Chris told me to not even put it on eventhough I have it. I dont want to sell it to any of you guys because as far as I'm concerned, we're all friends and I don't jip friends.

    I know about the crazy claims and most if not all the people on here would say that they don't work. I can't say the one for the tacoma will work or not but coming from the civic si forum, I had the car when it was fairly new and manufacturers were just developing parts for it so I and a few other guys volunteered our cars for R&D one of them was a throttle body spacer. They started with a completely stock car and dyno'd and 5 minutes later after the install of the TB spacer, the car was putting 2 to almost 3 lbs of torque more to the wheels with it. So others with modded cars added it to theirs and again with a base dyno showed improvements of upto 5 lbs of torque to the wheels depending on their set up.

    So if anybody here have the time and funds to actually do dyno runs with a TB spacer, I'm sure the rest of us would appreciate it.

    btw, hp also improved along with the tq.
