Might as well throw a Tornado on there too if you just want to throw your money away.

Think about it logically.....the air in your intake is trying to get to your turbo...which likes SMOOTH airflow into it.
Now...lets bolt on some little billet piece of crap to "spin" the air in the intake causing turbulance.
Now we're pushing rough, turbulant air into your tubro that again...likes smooth airflow into it's inlet.
What about that scenario makes any sense ?








Exactly......and a throttle body spacer makes no sense either.

i had one on my old chevy... i noticed a large whistling noise when i had a open element air cleaner. kinda sounded like a blower. i did notice alot better throttle response too!!! but when you get right to it the increase in throttle response was mostly from tighening up the throttle cable. i raced a guy that i barely beat before the tb spacer. strangely i still beat him but not by any more that before. i didnt dyno my truck but had been told the shop that had the dyno had seen 12hp.
i liked the noise it made. i had a healthy small block in my old truck so it made alot of people want to look under the hood.
