Top 10 performance mods that add as much power as a throttle-body spacer:

---------------------------------------------------
Install a set of Hello Kitty seatcovers.

Take the jack-handle from under the passenger-seat. Paint it semi-gloss black, and replace it under the passenger-seat.

Replace the windshield-washer fluid with high-performance holy-water.

Replace all the interior trim screws with lightweight titanium screws.

Insert an Abba CD in the CD-player.

Carefully clean the interior of the windshield and side-window glass with Windex.

Clean the bugs from the radiator.

Install a set of Yosemite Sam "Back OFF!" mudflaps. (Playboy Bunny mudflaps work almost as well)

Wide whitewalls. 'Nuff said.

Replace cupholders with high-performance aftermarket cupholders.

The value in the past was that on an aluminum intake, the intake would pass heat into the throttle body, thus heating up the charge by a small amount. With plastic intakes, they are pretty much a moot point.

Actually Im sure it does SOMETHING like perhaps .5whp but nothing you can really feel. And no one here has yet to post any dyno numbers with one and without comparo but i sure do like the way it sounds lol. I installed mine at the same time as my FIPK so of course I felt a difference but im sure most of it was just from the FIPK install.

it makes your truck sound as if you have a turbo but that waists gas because you will want the sound but it is in the upper rpm range their for waisting your gas.


Really that''s about it.

I got the Airaid TBS and saw no improvement, but the red anodized finish does add to the underhood aesthetics.

Well... thats what i bought mine for but i don't think i'd wanna spend money like that again. Id shop around here or ebay and look for a cheaper price. Wouldn't recommend paying over 60.

You forgot the aftermarket self-adhesive sunroof sticker that was on here awhile ago. I should try to find that.

found a web site about it. found the thread too, but didn't feel like digging it up.
