    Tornadoes dont work either, I did a formal comparo using a 2002 Dodge Durango. The results were dismal.

    Don't ever buy any of this hoodoo-voodoo shit from e-bay. If it was a good idea, someone you trust would be producing it, you would have heard about it here, and it would have appeared in a tech article in at least one magazine.

    A throttle body spacer will make a difference if a turbo is involved,

    Hi

    I checked into this same spacer. From what I could find out. Quite a few people said there was a difference in power, although nobody could prove any dyno difference. Alot of people did state that it made a really cool sound when you go on it. Some said just the sound alone was worth it. I dont $90 for no proven dyno results and a cool sound you decide. You can forget about the stated power increase, if it made that kind of power you would have dyno sheets to prove it and everbody would have one.

    Just get a block off wood, drill some holes in it.. and you got your spacer at .001 of the cost!

    Hey, not to try to keep a dead thread alive guys, but a b18 i bought had a throttle body spacer on it. I stuck the spacer on my coupe. I HIGHLY doubt that it increases power, but it does make a whistle similar to spool up. LOL i get ricers asking me why my car sounds turbo'd but has no blow off lol.

    The point of the third pull wasnt about the tornado but showed the si cam swap did make a little power and 10 ft/lb of torque over stock to the wheels. Not my faught youre to narrowminded to see a good side to a cheap upgrade. Oh and thanx for the negative rep. That stuff means shit to me.

    so let me get this straight, the first couple runs you had the tornado installed, and the third one you removed the intake and tornado all together, and lost power? gee i wonder why, it wasnt because you removed the tornado, its because you removed the intake.
