Thumbs up Helix Throttle Body Spacer

Had it on my truck for about a month

comes with all mounting hardware, and the throttle cable housing extenders so you're not full throttling while idling haha

65 shipped? it was 110 after taxes at 4wheelparts.com

no super easy, un bolt original 4 bolts to throttle body, unscrew intake hose and slide it off, bolt down spacer with provided longer bolts, and then slide intake hose back on. about 15 minutes and a 10mm wratchet

copied straight from their site

"Utilizing multiple aerodynamic principles, the Helix Power Tower Plus (patent pending) produces air breakup and turbulence that yields greater fuel burn efficiency, which translates into the best performing and efficient product of its type in the marketplace"

basically creates a vortex of air surplussing into the throttle body from the intake, also adds a nifty little whistle to the sound of your engine when accelerating haha

This is what happens when you put a throttle body spacer on...

Sounds like what the Tornado Fuel Saver was designed to do. I personally noticed a SLIGHT difference, but it could be because of perception since I paid $50+ for it. lol
