    Default How can i fit both a throttlebody spacer and intake?

    I own a 2002 silverado 5.3l extended cab. And i bought an airaid poweraid throttle body spacer, and a K&N 57 series cold air intake. I know for a fact that both of them wont fit, as i installed the cold air intake. But i get the throttle body spacer on monday, as it didnt show up at the shop. So i was wondering if the Airaid cold air intake will alow enough space for the throttle body spacer to fit in with it.

    Thanks, ill take pictures tomorrow during the daytime so you can see what im talking about.

    I would just use the CAI and not the TBS. But that is me.

    Cool How can i fit both a throttlebody spacer and intake

    Airaid use to make two t/bodt spacers for 5.3s. The early ones were thicker (pre 2005) and the later were thinner and fit down inside the manifold alittle because of factory throttle change. They now make only one part # 200-512-1. Maybe you got one of the older, thicker spacers. Also at one time we tried a #200-512-1 and Airaide CAI on my 2005 5.3 and they fit. Hope this helps.

    I just got done reading my LMC book that came today, and they said for maximum performance use the throttle body WITH the air raid intake. So they seem to think it would fit like that, good luck!

    Yes, The Airaid CAI with the Intake tube will work with the TBS.

    I don't think so, because Airaid designs their Intake Tube so that you can use theTBS. I do know, if you use the TBS and the Airaid CAI that sometimes you have to trim a little off of the fan shroud to get a proper fit. If you look hard in the picture, just in front of the intake tube you can see where the shroud has been trimmed to allow the fitment of the TBS. This picture was taken after I removed it but you can see that the Intake tube can be moved a bit forward to accomodate the r extra space occupied by the TBS.
