    Anyone done one and had any significant gains? I hear mixed opinions on them... I already have exhaust and deckplate done with a drop in high flow filter so the next thing to do would be T.B.S. or a header... I lean toward the gimic side with the TBS...

    x2, honestly how much of a diff can it make, your truck is still gonna get the same amount of air going in to mix with the gas.

    But it swirls the air causing turbulance and atomizes it better....:p haha tbs are a fucking waste of bad engineering and time for fuel injected engines

    Yeah that's pretty much what I figured. Just checkin' haha... Idk, I run a lot of hotrods and a carburated engine will see benefits with a spacer between the plenum and carb.
