Default Throttle body spacer install
by GreenTJ 04-27-2012, 12:53 PM

I got a Power Aid throttle body spacer. I had a full size Bronco that I installed one on and my mpg went from 8 to 12 and better throttle responce. So here is a little write up


First remove the air intake


Then remove the throttle body and the bracket that holds the throttle cable


Then install the spacer


Then ins
tall the throttle cable bracket spacers

Put the air intake back on.


This took about 30 min. to do.

I am going to guess it didn't do much. Have heard some report a bit quicker throttle response but really all the spacer does it give the air further to travel.

They work better on vehicles that are carb'd or throttle body injected, but not so much on direct injected engines.
