Default Throttle Body Spacer

I have a 2004 F150 5.4 and I want to install a throttle body spacer. The ? Is...is it going to fit because I have a volant air intake installed already and it's already a tight fit. Let me know

It would be far more effective as a paperweight.

This^^^ TB spacers do nothing but add weight to your engine and reduce weight in your wallet!

You are both wrong, most people stack 2 or 3 TB spacers for maximum benefit. As always, you should run a cold air intake WITHOUT a proper tune, that is the safest way so you run lean and melt your catalytic converters.

The answer to your question is yes...it will fit.. what good it will do is debatable
