    My cousin was trying to convince me the other day that it had no effect to his truck but it improved throttle response on his ranger. Is there any truth in this?

    You see it it looks pretty! But thats about all. I did not notice anything when I put it on, but like I said it looks pretty. It may help throttle responce but I put it on after the header and cai so I did not notice anything.

    Throttle body spacers are JUNK for our trucks... Toyota has designed these engines to produce as much as it can by themselves.

    Headers, Exhaust, and a TRD (URD) CAI will make it better obviously but those are big bolt ons... any "extra" parts are not worth it.

    If I had it all to do again I would start with a dynomax super turbo muffler insted of my flowmaster.<< I love the way it sounds but for performance I have been told the dynomax is better for the 4cyl. Next I would have not spent the money I did on the K@N intake and tb spacer, and just done the deck plate mod with a good air filter. Deff go with a header most bolt on power youll get for the money without S/Cing I may be wrong but thats just what i think. But really if you can, reduce weight if all possible, maybe go with a smaller lighter tire/wheel combo, helps mpg's also!

    I'll sell you my airraid throtle body spacer. I feel it does nothing except whistle also. The idea is that it makes the air in your throttle body more turbulent. This mixes the air and fuel better. Only problem is that our fuel is infected into the cylinder.
    It might be a very very small gain due to the possibility of the air being more turbulent inside the cylinder but I doubt even that. It get sucked in so fast I think that's all the more turbulence your gonna get.

    This might be a good idea if you have water injection, for a supercharger possibly. Or a 7th injector? then it would have something to mix together.

    Any thoughts? someone to shoot me down? lol
