Do Throttle Body Spacers Interfere with Cold Air Intakes


I have a stock 2011 V6 3.7 mustang. I bought a Spectre cold air intake for it. will it fit if i also buy a JET throttle body spacer?

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.

I recently bought a Rough Country cold air intake system for my 2016 Jeep Wrangler unlimited JK & found satisfactory gains in midrange torque. Would adding a Rough Country throttle body spacer be beneficial worth the investment? Thank you for your comments

Adding a throttle body spacer will help to improve things like engine torque, horsepower, and fuel efficiency, but from my understanding the amount of benefit you see is dependent on a handful of variables like terrain, altitude, and how loaded up your Jeep is. Bottom line is that you can see improvements but it's kind of up to the user to determine if it's going to be worth the investment or not.
