    does a throttlebody spacer really give you more horsepower. i have read a million ads stating that it will. But who knows???? :rolleyes: do any of you out there know about this will it work, dyno results or anything on it thanx. by the way i saw them for sale on ebay for 40 dollars :huh:

    My friend just put one on his S10 and said he felt a difference but I am skeptical to any performance gains from this.

    no its billet alum. and its threaded to make the air entering the intake mani swirl around. i really do not understand how this will make more horsepower

    i do not think that this will work as well as say a intake manifold spacer, If you have a good intake then you should be fine, I cannot see a throtle body spacer getting the air colder, all i can see it doing it keeping the throtle body it self cooler. if there are any gains from this they will be so small and almost not noticible.
