agreed. i pulled my fans from a windstar. installed them with wiring for about $70. the controller was what cost the most, about $50. it frees up power and im sure it improved gas mileage a little bit.

i am curious if anyone has run any dyno testings with them spacers on. i have heard they arent worth it as well but curious if there is any improvement. (heard they work good if you spray) also curious about a bigger TB.

Haha I guess Ill be the Guinea Pig because I orderd the BBK 75mm throttle body from Troyer Performance yesterday. According to their website you see a 6-8 horsepower gain on a stock truck, they claim you see more gains out of the TB with other performance parts(obviously). Probably install it next week...

Only 220 bucks, so im not too worried...

please keep us informed man.

nothing wrong with being guinea pig. thats how stuff is figured out right? i tried the guinea pig idea out on a steering stabilizer, saw some positives out of it for sure.
