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...
