Throttle body spacers!

Whats up everyone! I just gotta tell you that one of the biggest rip offs around are the TBS! I had forgotten how well my WJ ran before I put that paper weight on my manifold. Take my advice and never purchase one of these pieces of ****!

Stop the presses!!! Tornado fans in the intake hose don't werk either.
And I think that magnet thing on my fuel line is making my MPG's drop too?!?!?

TB spacers don't work?! Next I'm gonna hear that Type R stickers don't add any power either!

Pshhh hood? That just reduces the air intake abilities. I ditched that the day I got it.
