Hay people just wondering what are the benefits of a throttle body spacer because I just made one for a buddy at work for his civic and if it helped his car then why wouldn't it work on my truck just wondering if anyone has done one or know of anybody with one

I have heard everything from "Wow what a big difference" to "I like the sound of it" to "it does not do anything".
I am certain starspangled6.0 will chime in. He loves his. Also, do a search of the site. It's been discussed...a lot.

I asked the same question and the answer I got was not much just makes it sound like you gave a turbo installed but no real performance increase

On a non TBI or Carb'd engine, it will have no gains and isn't worth the hassle. With a Carb or TBI setup, it gives the fuel more time to mix with the air. But on the SFI, MPFI, etc.....it only moves the butterfly higher and does not effect the air:fuel mixture.
