    Nope. Not on a stock engine. What do you mean by throttle body anyway? The TB itself or a spacer?

    OP,if youre talking about a throttle body spacer,they dont work at all. I have one for AEM i think,and it didnt do anything but set off an engine check. Once i took it off,the light went off.

    Nope. Your intake didn't do anything either and if it is a K&N then it isn't a hot air intake and you lost power with it.
