Not many people are willing to spend $300 and then post on a forum that it didn't work. Wanting to feel a difference can trick you into thinking there was one. If there really increased power and MPG why would they not be standard equipment with all the pressure dealers are under due to government regulations?

Throttle body spacers only work on TBI engines,and there close cousin the carb spacer(where they got the idea) only works on carb engines.

The above are both "wet" intakes and benefit from the added length in the intake which gives the fuel/air going through more time to mix and atomize(fuel).In a multiport FI engine like what the 3.8 uses that spacer will do nothing as you have a "dry" intake with only air running through the intake,no benefit at all.

More plenum volume is more plenum volume. No matter how you look at it or where you get it.

thats right. the only thing a spacer will do in a dry intake is increase the volume of air the intake can hold, not sure if it would increase power but may improve throttle responce as more air would be available as the throttle is being opened

I too would like to see dyno proof before spending that kind of money. And I have yet to see any dyno proof. In fact the dyno records I've seen showed zero increase, and even a decrease in one.

As far as the TB changing the shifting- not gonna happen. Drive by wire system with the shifting controlled by the computer. There's just no way a TB would make the computer behave differently where the shifting is concerned. You need something that can change the program, IE: Flashpaq
