Yes.....dwill.....Thanks for the heads up, I just read the link and it does seem to be the fit. I wonder why the more custom sites did not list the item?

supposedly the ones with the swirls help increase turbulence, which would in turn get more air into the cylinders, or preheat it, or some BS like that...I don't particularly buy into TB spacers. How can it increase power/performance AND increase fuel mileage? However, if they work, I'm ll for anything that can buy me more MPG...Christopher

I think when I bought mine there was only the swirl version. It really did boost performance. I feel as far as getting better MPG's, driving style plays a big part. When I installed a K&N CAI on my wife's 2001 Suburban 5.3, it was like night and day with low-end response and acceleration so we went through a period of getting used to the new found power and used it often (I even raced a few kids and their imports from stop lights to show them the big red rig had some poop to it ) but also with an increase in performance, the less pedal you have to give it to move the big rig so in the long run it did improve mileage.

i was advised to have the throttle body ported instead..its more expensive but the performence difference is supposed to be better
