CAI on 2500 with throttle body spacer setup.
I have a 2002 2500 GMC and I am looking to put a CAI on my truck. I have a throttle body spacer. Any one out there with this kind of setup. If so what brand and did you have to modify anything to get it to fit. I know there isn't much space between the throttle body and the fan shroud. I found a couple but they say wont fit with throttle body spacer. Any pics would be cool too.

Wont fit because it hits the fan shroud. You can trim it and i have seen many people do it. I personally dont think they do much but if you already have it go for it.01' 1500 LT Z71 ECSB 5.3L

Yeah I was thinking I would have to trim the fan shroud. I guess I really want to get rid of that ugly piece of plastic from the air filter to the throttle body. I dont know why they put that bulky crap in there.

I ran a K&N 77 series full CAI with a throttle body spacer and everything fit just fine... didn't have to modify anything, just followed the installation instructions to the T.
I have since removed the throttle body spacer because it was so annoying.. I even had people asking me all the time what was wrong with my truck. I didn't see any performance gains/losses with it either. So basically all it does it make your truck whistle.
Pic of my setup below.. you can't see the TBS but it's there.

Nice looking setup. It is different from mine though. I have a 2002 with clutch fan. so I dont have the room you do. Thanks for the info and pics though. Nice truck.

Yes TB Spacers are a waste of metal unless it has nitrous fittings built into it :D
The airraid MIT tube is the best choice with the stock air box and a quality filter. it out performs all the "Cold Air Kits" on a stock engine.
Black Bear Performance tested them on a dyno and that was his findings.
You will see better gains goin to Electric Fans and gain room for your Airraid MIT tube.-Jonathan
