Hi, looking for some experience people have had with either throttle body spacers, manifold spacers or both. The claims for TB spacers seem like an easy 6+hp bolt on, but do they really produce what they say and do the manifold spacer yield any real performance gains?

Any info would be great, thanks!

Any thoughts on the spacers I originally mentioned? Would that provide even more gain withe 2.3 TB?
I personally haven't used a spacer. I think it would change the power band, not really add power. It basicly added volume to the manifold.

Nice! Is it a direct bolt on or is there any modifications needed to intake, air intake or wiring? What is the net gain in using that TB?
He is building a 2.3l. Not sure this would work with the 2.0l. @UnfocusedST might be able to say.

Honestly not sure.

I have had both for over 2 years. I agree with @UnfocusedST . I view them as an efficiency item not power items. If you dig into some old Steeda threads you may find they claim 6HP for each but that is not an automatic multiplier for both nor do they claim as such. Again efficiency should be your objective in adding these items.

When you say efficiency, what are you referring to? Like better gas mileage or better turbo spool?
