    LS1-T56 swap, Z06 ported heads, cam, Titanium valves, Kevlar clutch. Currently under the knife for turbocharger..
    Most cars built today are making as much power as possible and still getting reasonable mileage.

    The answer is NO there is nothing that will add significant power without forced induction period.

    Unless you do the LS1 mod like I did..then you can have 30mpg and 300+ hp, just not both at once, lol.

    heres an Idea, for almost the same price. why cant you buy the Holly sinper EFI throttle body (shown here https://www.carid.com/sniper/sniper-efi-throttle-body-326061209.html ) in 92mm and retro fit(not really because its a universal fit) it to the intake. the stock throttle body bore is 65mm, the holly efi bore is 92mm, that's a 27mm jump in size and should suck way more air to provide way more horse power. (and sounds way better than a paper weight)

    Just buy it! It will make you feel faster and you can add it to your mod list. It increases the felt air flow and the extra chamber cools down the air before the throttle body! You may get a engine light code for thrown air sensors but it's fine you can reset that light easy. And the best part is that you can customize the color so your engine bay gets a little color!

    This is the only type of throttle body spacer that works.

    As for some of the prior posts, N/A bolt-ons , and some type of tuning, can net the 1GR a little more power than bolting on the TRD/Magnuson in unmodified form, to a stock truck. In both whp and wtq.

    That is a Fact.

    I had a poweraid throttle body spacer and it did nothing but make a whistling noise at partial throttle. I took it off because my engine cover wasn't lining up right with it on there. It did however make a noticeable difference on my old Chevy S10 with the throttle body injection. With carbs and tbi's the spacer is better able to mix the fuel and air before entering the combustion chamber. In the case of today's fuel injection it does nothing.
