What do you guys think about getting a throttle body spacer?

What about headers?

The spacer is arounnd $60 and gives around 20 hp...i think

not real sure about headers..

There is no such thing as a throttle body on a 7.3l

Like the others have said, there is no valve body to space. Someone on here had one, It did nothing but lighten the wallet for about $75.

Headers don't really do much until you get up to the 500+hp world. Plus they are $1000 plain stainless and $1200 ceramic coated......OUCH!

the headers can lower egt's and sound a lil different...but basically still
a near the bottom of the list mod for me.

now a fluid damper, changing to all synthetic fluids, have definite results
and pay for themselves eventually in mpg savings.

also bypass filter systems seem to , and the CPR system - fass/ airdog , regulated return systems have good results, more so on modded engines but... start to get some $$ involved.

strokn' early 99 runs one he can tell you the details.

i can give you the not so glossy brochure version ..
hp gain will be -hmmph that feels a lil different. it ranges from 5~16 hp so kinda hard to tell more. your milage will go up a tad....+/-1, but your motor will be smother idle somewhat quieter...etc.

the cost range i don't know 410 +/- 10 ish seems the normal ads a few months ago.
cheap compared to a trurbo or injectors , a lot more then a fujamoto valve or a 203 tstat.

dieselsite.com stuff
fuji valve is an oil drain plug, makes life easy if you diy oil changes.
the 203 is a new thermostat that is said to improve things a tiny bit.
basically a good thing to add if you do the coolant filter to get the sand left in the block after casting.

Fluidampr smoothed the idle some and running it at 2500-3300rpm feels smooth as silk but I did not notice any added power from the fluidampr.
