Review: Airraid Throttle Body Spacer

I bought the spacer for $130 and it has a sweet whistle to it and has definite increases in low end torque and high rpm hp! Im impressed with the product.

Well some company just profited from you... You should read up from other people who have tried out these lame products before buying.

Get some dyno or 1/4th mile track runs for some proof, but I can't see this as being any benefit. Sorry to knock it, but if I google throttle body spacer and 20 threads come up about how useless they are (up there with the Jet module), then I will rather side with them.

Im not sold on them but let us know how it goes.

Turbulent air causes fuel to mix better?
Why is it racecars port and polish their intakes
to reduce the turbulence? hhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

Seems pricey for a spacer. Kinda looks cool though.

MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

Actually turbulant air does create a better a/f mix which in turns creates power....the port and polish increases the velocity which in turn allows more air to be pulled in.

Now the trick here is exactly where and how you want the turbulance. There are some old tricks (dotting the CC, swirling the CC, etc) but you actually want a smooth flow up to the runners.

OK-I'm done

I feel it deff did something, huge gains? Not too much but its noticeable. and for it to be noticeable it has to be at least a 5hp gain i figure, you can really feel it once you hit 80 it speeds up alot quicker at high speed and for low end it picks up a little quicker, i think its worth the mod tho since there really isnt much out there i would give it a 4/5. Plus it looks nice :P

Glad someone finally got this to give it a shot! I remember the old thread where we explained in detail how it functioned and linked multiple locations where there WAS benefit ( minimal, but benefit is benefit ) - but - there will always be nay-sayers

I might have to invest in this next myself~!

Welp, I've been these threads on both sites - actually more curious about the sound difference than any performances gains.

Anyway, just did a little further investigation and before most of us on either side of the debate gets too worked up, apparently the only G6 application available is the 3.6

09 White Diamond Tricoat 'vert here!

Now with CRABs, STBs, & The Heart Ruling The Mind!
