In this video, I'm trying a throttle body spacer on my 2007 Chevy Trailblazer. I've never used one before, so I don't know what to expect. Is it worth it or not? That is the question I'm trying to answer in this video.

      Everyone complaining was looking to spend 100 and get turbo results. Spend more money with some more money and upgrade with lots more money. HP doesn’t come cheap.

      A significantly longer intake length post-filtration yields more torque because the air becomes less turbulent due to the longer distance it needs to flow. This is why cold-air intakes make more torque and sooner too; the lower intake air temp is not the major part in adding power.

      Now a spacer is insignificant in terms of length added, so I doubt there's actually any significant improvement.

      Someone did a dyno of a spacer it was like 3hp and 7 torque at wheels. If you port the throttle body in combination you'll get more. Same with exhaust and intake. The more to do to move air in combination they all work together to increas power. it does free up torque lower and broadens your "power band" if you will. You may 2hp extra per install. So air tb exhaust would be 6 plus the 3 of the spacer you're getting close to 10hp to the ground.

      First of all
      How does spinning air give more horsepower??? *if it spins the air to begin with*
      It's a scam, the cheapest way to make more HP is a nitrous kit

      +SpartanX360 I do agree that superchargers and turbos are the better route

      But the cheapest is still nitrous

      Well main issue lol is these people do cheap they see bolt on power adder an buy it when they don't realize it's meant for after you supercharge or turbo charge or mod cam. Mod motors it's will do nothing as gain or improvement on stock engine except help increase air swirl which raise fuel economy because of air fuel mix reason why it has the cut in swirl vane in the throat.

      You want the air to be sucked in quick directly from the filter and go on eBay an get a stainless steel racing filter if yah want better free flow an colder air charge

      Need too remove that resonator. Lol you have no need for it an you can use male end air tool fitting for the vac line pvc pyping to throttle body to your cool air kit an drill hole add the fitting jbweld putty the fitting an you will notice a lot more that resonator does nothing waste of space it actually rob. Power because it's direct forced air that air is just twirling around in a 180 degree heated plastic box.

      Throttle body... lol. They don't do shit. For that matter K&N filters don't do shit UNLESS you have a supercharger or turbo. For a normally aspirated engine more air has no ability to be forced into the engine faster and in more quantity. So all these silly after market glory holes do nothing but waste your time and money. Spend your time on waxing.

      The biggest claimed benefit of these throttle body spacers is the supposed increase in power. But you didn't dyno the engine before and after. How are we supposed to know if the purchase and install is "worth it" if you didn't test anything? Are we supposed to just take your word for it? Fail.

      I installed a Helix power tower throttle body spacer on my 99 Blazer 4.3L Vortec V6 and I promise it makes a BIG difference. I would recommend at least a K&N filter with it. I also cut the small short inlet pipe to allow more air in the filter box. I upgraded to a CAI on mine so it helps but CAI really don't do much but allow more air flow in. I've also installed headers on mine with some improvement.

      Used a vortex spacer on 2000 impala along with exhaust upgrade and intake manifold and cold air intake. I noticed alot of power gain after those mods. I did have to get the computer re programmed to run the new parts more efficiently and also to tweak shift timing. That car was fast especially after installing a shift kit. One day the girlfriend jumped it and destroyed the front end and transmission 😤 RIP impala

      A Trailblazer is NOT a truck. Does it have a bed that is not covered? No?!? Then it is NOT Truck. A Ford F-150 is a truck. Heck a Nissan Frontier is a truck. A trailblazer is a SUV.

      Only need a spacer when you have increased the injector size , more fuel needs more air but since you haven’t increased the actual throttle body size you use a spacer to kinda make up for it on the punch .... its a cheap mod for people who dont know anything about what their doing or how it works
