Throttle Body Spacer

Hello all, new here. I did a search and didn't find an answer to my question, so thought I'd post it. Just bought a 1993 Bronco, 351, w/tow pkg. 200,351 miles. What is the purpose of a throttle body spacer? Does it help with gas mileage?

Re: Throttle Body Spacer

One wonders if I asked too difficult of a question or is my post not worthy of an answer. The people seemed really friendly here when reading 50 some pages of posts. Guess I should remember looks can be deceiving. [img]images/graemlins/bs.gif[/img]

Re: Throttle Body Spacer

Most people are down on spacers.

The theory doesn't seem to pan out because of all the miles of tubing, runners and bends the air already takes getting into our EFI engines.

I've heard a few people say they make a difference, but many more say they don't.

Re: Throttle Body Spacer

I know that spacers on a carb intake will do different stuff but I'll agree with sixliter on this one. I don't think the cash to performance meter pans out on it. More of a bling factor than anything methinks.

Re: Throttle Body Spacer

I would tend to agree, on a carb vehicle you might see some performance increase but it's probably a waste of effort to put it in your efi engine
