Expert Answers about Throttle Body Spacer


  • Expected Mileage Increase with Airaid PowerAid Throttle Body Spacer on 2008 Ford Expedition
  • I spoke with my contact at Airaid and he said your actual mileage increase using the Airaid PowerAid Throttle Body Spacer # AR400-531, which you reference, on your 2008 Ford Expedition will depend on many factors, including the condition of your vehicle, terrain, tire inflation, weather conditions, elevation, etc. He said Airaid does not test its throttle body booster with all vehicles, but relies on customer feedback and said most customers have reported an increase of 1-3 MPG. I have...

  • Throttle Body Spacer and Cold Air Intake Recommendation for a 2014 Ford Mustang 3.7 Liter
  • I have a solution for your, but the part # AR450-638 that you referenced would be for the 5.0 liter 2014 Ford Mustangs. Since you have a 3.7 liter you instead would want the part # AR450-636. I confirmed this with AirAid. I attached installation instructions for you to check out as well. This product would also be compatible with your AirAid Cold Air Intake like part # AR451-265 or # AR450-265.

  • Will a Throttle Body Spacer Give a Modern Hemi Engine More Power and Mileage
  • For some vehicles the throttle body spacers do not provide much of an increase, but for the 5.7 liter Hemi engines in the new Dodge vehicles every review I have found listed a noticeable increase in power and fuel mileage gains between .5 and 2 miles per gallon. The mileage will depend largely on driving habits but horsepower and torque would realistically be around 5 more for both.

  • Does Airaid Throttle Body Spacer Work On 2010 GMC Terrain

The design of the bore causes air to tumble and spin which increases the velocity which leads to more power.

  • How much Horsepower will the Airaid Throttle Body Spacer Add to a 2013 Toyota Tacoma
  • I spoke with my contact at Airaid and he said that the Custom Throttle Body Spacer, # AR510-624, will give your 2013 Toyota Tacoma an additional 4 to 6 ft pounds of torque and will increase horsepower by 1 to 2. Airaid also said that you will not be able to measure these gains on a dyno because they happen so low in the RPM range. If you are looking for a more substantial gain, I would recommend installing a cold air intake. We offer the Airaid Cold Air Intake System with SythaFlow...

  • Will a Throttle Body Spacer Improve Fuel Economy on a 2008 Jeep Liberty When Towing
  • Performance part manufacturers do not actually track mileage improvements because there are many factors that can effect fuel economy such as driving habits, environmental conditions, additional performance enhancement products and the condition of the vehicle. Fuel economy improvement from a throttle body spacer alone would be minimal, especially when towing. Perfomance enhancement products, such as a throttle body spacer, air intake and exhaust are targeted toward performance vehicle...

  • Throttle Body Spacer and Cold Air Intake Recommendation for a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The Airaid PowerAid Throttle Body Spacer part # AR300-637 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Jeep Wangler. I would recommend the Airaid MXP Cold Air Intake System with SynthaMax Dry Filter # AR312-132 which has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle as it has a dry filter which will be easier to clean. If you plan to go off-road a lot and would see a lot of dust an oil-based filter would be a better option though. For that you would need the part # AR310-132.

  • Troubleshooting Check Engine Light After Install of Throttle Body Spacer
  • I've had similar issues before installing intake modifications on a vehicle and the issue was that I forgot to plug in all of the sensors that had to be unplugged to perform the install. I'd go over the install again looking for anything left unplugged or other anything else that may not be fully seated. Also make sure the gasket is sealing properly.

  • Hole Spacing on Throttle Body Spacer for a 2005 Toyota Tacoma
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled throttle body spacer # AR510-624 to measure it for you. Left to right the holes are 2-3/4 inches apart on center. Front to back they are 2-5/8 inches apart on center. I have included a picture showing this for you. This spacer is designed for a Toyota Tacoma. Even though the Hilux is basically the same truck I cannot confirm that it will fit a Hilux. Also, this spacer is designed for the 4.0 liter motor. There isn't an option for a 2.4.

  • What Type of Fuel Mileage Savings will the Airaid Throttle Body Spacer # AR1002 Give my 2004 F-150
  • While I am normally very skeptical of fuel savings products like the # AR400-516 that you referenced. We had a customer come back and tell us that after monitoring their fuel mileage for the first 1,000 miles of their road trip without the # AR400-516 they noticed an additional mile per gallon on the next 1,000 miles of the trip with the # AR400-516 installed. While we can't absolutely guarantee you will see the same result I would be very surprised if you didn't see the same results...

  • Would Throttle Body Spacer Void Vehicle Warranty
  • A throttle body spacer like the part # AR200-630-1 should not void your engine warranty. But I would recommend you check with a GM dealer. When you install an aftermarket part on your vehicle likethis, you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. This act states, in part, that unless the installation and the part caused a problem then the warranty cannot be voided. I recommend looking it up online. This product is 50 state legal too which means it passes CARB standards. It...

  • Throttle Body Booster for 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 with 4.7 V8
  • As long as your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 with 4.7 liter engine is equipped with the factory throttle body and intake system, the Airaid PowerAid Custom Throttle Body Spacer, # AR300-626, will work for you. The helix bore design causes incoming air to tumble and spin. This highly atomized fuel-air mixture - along with an elongated intake tract that increases air velocity - leads to more power. Another great way to increase your engine's performance is to use a programmer like the Edge Evolution...

  • Does a Throttle Body Spacer Increase Horsepower on a 2010 Chevy Camaro SS 6.2 Liter
  • Airaid doesn't Dyno test the throttle body spacers such as # AR200-630-1 for your 2010 Chevy Camaro with the 6.2 liter Corvette motor. Any gain in horsepower would probably not be noticeable on a vehicle that already has a ton of power. It can help the engine run more efficiently. Using a programmer such as the Flashpaq # SU2845 will provide more power. The estimated power gains are 19.9 horse and 18.3 feet pounds of torque.

  • Do Throttle Body Spacers Affect Idle of a Vehicle
  • The idle of a vehicle shouldn't change much at all with the installation of a throttle body spacer like the part # AR300-574 that you referenced. If your idle is off you may recheck the install to be sure there are no vacuum leaks around the throttle body/spacer as that may cause the vehicle to hunt for idle. The cable configuration for the throttle body would remain the same as well. You shouldn't have to make any adjustments at all.

  • Do Throttle Body Spacers Interfere with Cold Air Intakes
  • The Airaid PowerAid Custom Throttle Body Spacer # AR450-638 that you referenced should work just fine with the cold air intake system you have installed on your 2011 Ford Mustang. It will add about an inch to your intake track length which your cold air kit shouldn't have a problem accommodating. Running two throttle body spacers would be a bit redundant and would greatly increase the chance of experiencing a fit issue so I can't recommend you go that route.
