    It's the flux capacitor in the throttle body that does the magic

    The aFe throttle body spacers create turbulence in the air flow at the point just prior entry into the engine increasing horsepower, torque and improving throttle response and fuel efficiency so they say.Claiming 5hp.

    Complete horseshit. Look at your intake tract from the TB to the heads. Even if the TB were able to create "turbulence" - which it can't - do you not think it would be negated while traveling down that intake tract? Of course it would.

    Welcome to TW.
    Send me the 100 bucks and I will pray for more power for you...:thumbsup:

    Seriously, if a spacer would add HP, wouldn't Toyota already put one on? Mass produced would cost them like $5. Just sayin'.

    A bare throttle body spacer is a snake oil product. It’s like donating support money to the fabricator who’s making and selling it. Don’t buy or support them.

    A buddy had one on his 04 ranger FX4. Besides the "cool" whistling sound, it was essentially a paper weight inside of his engine bay. Even with the claimed 5hp, you wouldn't notice the difference. It's like spending $100 for 0.1mpg increase. Don't waste your money.

    Yeah. You'd be better off spending the money on something else.
