Hey, check out this thread.

Airaid / Throttle Body Adapter

Seems like a questionable purchase to me.

I would say till someone posts honest before and after dyno results that its a waste of money. You are fuel injected so anything causing the air supposedly help with the atomization of the fuel is BS because the injectors don't squirt the gas into the combustion chamber, they mist the gas into it. Cant get much better with current technology. Its snake oil re-invented.

a waste of money. it only works in commercials and ads for the item. save your money for a real hp/torque item. buy an engine performance programmer from bama. go to american muscle for it. doug's the guy to contact. good luck.

they dont work on fuel injected motors. on carbs it works. the less the air has to travel the better its going to be
