    I don't care what anyone says, i have a spacer on my truck, it made my throttle response faster, and gave my truck a little more low end torque. I've noticed a slight slight slight increase in gas mileage when driving in cities. Not so much on highways.

    Hey only v-tech stickers on civics add horsepower

    I'm planning on ordering a spacer sometime in the near future, but now i'm torn between those who say they really do something and those who claim it's a waste of money

    Did you have a REALLY big sticker??? No I'm sorry I couldn't resist saying that, you are the reason why I am going to try one. I liked the whistle sound in your video, hell at least it has something to show versus that F^@^@& intake I bought from K&N!

    Hello, I installed on on my 01 silverado- It's easy to install, remove 4 bolts, instal spacer & Gasket, install new longer bolts, tighten, drive.

    as far as performance I have to dyno the truck, I have on board diagnostics and tunning, but off hand I think it does something probably in the mid rpm range, my guess is it adds velocity, but as far as spinning air into the cylender I highly doupt it. the a will stop spinning as soon as it passes a few centemeters from the spacer.

    Sorry if spelling is off, it's not my forte'
