Throttle Body Spacer

Hi, Has anyone tried an Airaid spacer ? Did it help. What about a cold air intake ? What are people doing to make these things run better ? Thanks K.C.

They make nice paperweights!

I like the woosh sound my air raid makes when I hit the gas. That is about it!

Sorry. I thought I saw it in the TJ thread. Since it's a JK, I should have known your specs.

Throttle body spacer is still not going to do anything for you.

They're functionally worthless. Save your $, spend it elsewhere.
Also, as I've mentioned in the past, the search button can add up to 20 WHP- I KNOW this topic has been covered SEVERAL times in the past, on this, and every other Wrangler forum- try it out Mark W.

that would be "Wheel Horse Power, sometimes you'll see RWHP for Rear Wheel Horse Power" that's the power you are actually putting to the ground after parasitic loss due to trans, transfer, rearends etc. For instance your "Engine" HP may be 150hp but dyno'd at the wheel it may only show 115hp for a loss of 35hp thru the drive train. That's why wheel measured HP is more accurate or realistic as it shows what you are pushing your vehicle with. Hope it helps.
