The Rugged Ridge Throttle Body Spacer raises the throttle body 1/2 inch above the intake manifold. The additional space helps optimize power and performance by drawing in colder denser air. And, the large bore design allows your system to inhale a larger volume of air. It features solid aluminum construction with a slick anodized finish, and adds bolt-on performance for 3.8L engines. NOT LEGAL FOR SALE OR USE IN CALIFORNIA or other States adopting CARB standards. RACING OR NON-HIGHWAY USE ONLY.
This spacer was easy to install, but the throttle body needed to be clearanced to fit with the added depth of the spacer. It interfered with the upper radiator hose. Not a big deal as I had a grinder handy, but something to be aware of. Noticed a slight uptick in torque. I'm getting about 1.5mpg better mileage, didn't expect that. Coincedence? I'll take it though.
