throttle body spacer

Okay thanks for the exhaust tips!!!! I love the sound of mine being straight piped as it is, I just wanna get a couple horsepower and lower EGTs from the 4".

Okay another question. I put in a throttle body spacer...Is this a good move or is it really pointless to have it in?

Just a few upgrades here and there.

Whatever you want to call it, the one from airraid goes between the boost tube from the intercooler and the intake elbow. I'm sure if it does anything to atomize the air going in, I'm sure it is so minimal its probably immeasureable.

Just curious, how does it atomize air? I can see how this might be useful on a naturally aspirated vehicle, but on a force inducted vehicle it's pointless.
