Hey- I was wondering if anyone with a 3.5 also has a throttle Body spacer.

I've installed one in another vehicle and I like the way it sounds, + the little umph!

I just installed a K&N CAI, and was thinking of getting a spacer as well.

I am also thinking of getting the Predator-

1. Do you have one? What kind?
2. Did it make a difference?
3. Do you think it's a good idea, or waste of money?

Thanks for the help and input!

On older Carb/TBI Vehicles TB Spacers made a Big Difference because it aided in better Fuel Atomization, which is what gave them Improved HP/TQ... On more Modern Vehicles they only provide Air Turbulance that your Computer will eventually tune out, if not retard your Performance due to it thinking there is a System Malfuction/Part Breaking Down....

With our cars, you would be better off spending the Money on a Polished and Ported TB & Lower Intake, along with a Diablo Predator, all of which has been proven Numerous times to actually Increase Performance, rather than negate them.... If you still are looking for Mods, then I would recommend a 2.5" True System with an X-pipe, if you have not already installed one... From there I would add a pair of Headers, and eventually a MM Supercharger.... Now if you fiending for more, then I would say a Stroker 3.5, + All the above Items, if not stepping up to a 2.75" True Dual System..... After going that far though, I would look into beefing up your Trans, and Your Rearend(especially the Half-shafts, and different Gears).... Besure to remember and properly step up your Brake System as well, so you can get that Bad Boy to stop properly.... Good Luck In Your Power Quest! :beerchug:
