Has anyone heard about the "Throttle body spacer"?
It apparently give extra torque when installed...?
Any body has it?
Let me know if it's worth it.

Thanks guys,
I will pass on this one, I have read the threat about it that Jeff gave me and it's not brilliant.
Thanks a lot.
Ps: for Daggo; I will spend that money on cigars......:))

^ It does. Intake turbulence, or tumble, or vortex (whatever an engineer calls it this week! :)) is a good thing, both A, up to a point, and B, where needed. Too much, and it can start to pull air out of the cylinder, and up into the intake (in extreme cases), causing reversion. This puts unburnt fuel and exhaust gases in the intake manifold- not good. Otherwise, some cars already have intake paths that cause enough tumble, and adding more does nothing.
The Tornado, in many cases, merely adds dead weight, wastes your $, and can make an annoying whistling noise. Sounds rather like the TBS for a JK, no? :) Mark W.
