Nah, don't worry about it. It's just there are two very different views on it and if I post one, the other villagers will be enraged and come with lit torches pounding on the castle doors. Wink

I have one and honestly I'd just as soon take it off for what gain if any I have gained.

ER, english. I have one and well I bought the hype long time ago and I haven't seen a significant gain to warrant saving in gas what I spent to buy it in the first place.

Here are some dyno results with an AEM dry air cleaner and a throttle body spacer........

If it was mine, I would save the money and use it to buy gears.

Outstanding choice in beer my friend. I have a spacer in my 318 and I did notice that it seemed to respond a little faster than what it used to. I attribute that to stretching the throttle cable a little bit. I haven't noticed any negative results so I figure why take it off.

I also hope that most of the people are safe but lets be honest, we should all be pretty used to mother nature coming and kicking our asses for building things where we shouldn't.







I apologize too.
