    Sounds about right...throttle response and low end power is all I gained.

    How did you like the spacer? Is it worth the money?

    Good to hear. A majority of people have said they are not worth the money because of the too-small of gains that are achieved with one but it's good to hear you are satisfied with yours.

    Same thing, let me guess it's a K&N 57 Series CAI? I bought that one, and an AirAid PowerAid throttlebody spacer. Couldn't have both on, so i sold the 57 Series and bought an AirAid CAI fits good, does just as well as the K&N, and you can install both the spacer and CAI at the same time. Well worth it in my opinion.

    well i couldnt use it. i have the 57 series k&n as asked in another post, so i couldnt use the tb spacer. i dont have the stock air box, so i couldnt use it no mater what road i took. i never thought about using airraide intake tube, but i am going to solve the problem by eliminating my clutch fan and fan shroud and install an electric setup. i have to look up the write-up on here on how to do it with an electric fan off of a ford taurus, but this will give me so much more room for more goodies!

    if you are referring to what i posted, i wasnt able to combine the two due to limited space. as soon as i get my electric fan setup in, then i will post pro's and cons
