throttle body spacers

Anybody have these and have you seen any results? The premise is sound, I just wonder if they work.
Thanks, Dave

Huh? On a diesel? I wouldn't think they would do much, if anything on a diesel. Certain gas powered cars yes, but.....Unless there is something I am missing, I can think of no way that this would improve anything on a diesel.

See, I would think the opposite. Diesels rely so much more on their airflow than gassers.

yeah but a throttle body spacer doesnt really have anything to do with airflow. you are talking about phenolic spacers, right ?

arent they supposed to create a vortex to help with better atomization of the fuel?

i know this is a whole different animal, but my wife had a 1'' airraid throttle body spacer on her expedition, and i didnt notice any new power, i think i may have helped a little bit with the mileage. it also made a wierd whistle sound as the engine RPM's would rise. i think it may be worth a shot, let us know if you try one.

i call pure snake oil on this one. for one there is no throttle body on our psd. it would have to be installed before the turbo. which make no since cause the turbo is gonna compress the incoming air and forces it into the cyclinder. yeah your creating a vortex for nothing the vortex is just going to be destryoed by the turbo. its pointless on a diesel. on a gas engine yeah ican understand it bbut on a diesel good luck seeing any differiance.

hahaha I was waiting for someone to point out the fact that our diesels have no throttle bodies! no offense fellas I made the same assumption also and asked that question when all my buddies started laughing at me. kinda embarassing one my part hehe. remember we are smarter than the average joe, thats why we are rollin diesels instead of gas junkers
