Throttle Body Spacer

I have a JMB FWI on now, wondering if a TBS will even do anything or if it's worth it? And how difficult is the install? Here's the one Im referencing.

You know how many other guys we have already stopped from buying that sort of thing here on this forum?

TB spacer only adds power if it is used deliver nitrous.

We will give you that one.

On a LOT of forums guys post saying "I just bought this pos, how much power will it give me?"

Those guys don't like it when you tell them to return it immediately.

First off throttle body spacers are not designed to give you more power! They are designed to keep your throttle body further away from your uim and to increase volume of your uim. So in turn it probably does give you more power but, not much. The main kicker for it is to keep your intake cool. Which, we all know the 3800's have many uim problems.
