Aftermarket Throttle Body Spacer

I just purchased an after market throttle body spacer online and was wondering if anyone knew how to install it on a 2002 Ford Ranger 3.0. If anyone could help, Id greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

did it come with longer bolts?


id assume you would remove your throttle body, and install the spacer and reinstall the throttle body



but just wondering, why did you get one? ive always heard they werent good for anything, at least on our rangers

you won't see much of a power difference, mine had a little more right off idle but not enough to really make it worth buying

it should come with instructions, longer bolts, at least one new gasket and a new bracket and spacer for the throttle cable, simple bolt in, put the spacer in between the throttle body and the intake manifold, use gaskets of course, put the bolts in, put the spacer on the longest bolt and the new throttle cable bracket on after the spacer then the nut, tighten everything down and check to make sure there is proper tension on the throttle cable, i had to bend the bracket a little bit because the cable was too loose, the company seems to have sent me a spacer that was too short so i need to make a new one some time so i can staighten out the bracket but it works for now

if anyone else buys one of these don't buy from motorvation, the hardware was all wrong and the spacer was too short, i had to go diggin around the garage to find bolts that were the right size

i could see how it could somewhat work on a carb engine, or even TBI, but i dont see how would it help on a TB like the ranger uses. to me by the time the air gets through the intake manifold it would be no more atomized then if u didnt have a TBS at all.
