dont forget the flux capacitor special its suppose to add at last 500 more hp, also along with those marbles you throw down your exhaust those must give you an extra 75hp.... oh and most important dont forget those stickers... man those things give crazy hp... and the sad thing is losers forget to put them on their cars...

Only reason I see a need for a spacer is if you need to add some vacuum hookups. Just drill and tap easy as pie without damaging your intake manifold.

one question tho... why add "vacuum hookups" to a ranger???

spacers are good for a carbed v8.... never have I seen a spacer add any type of performance to an engine... Ive seen them on efi v8's, v6s, flat 6's, inline 6's, 4 bangers and even a fourstroke fourwheeler... and nothing was gained... they lost mpgs and hp... all they do is just make noise and wont allow you to run an aftermarket CAI

Vacuum hookups for a boost gauge if you are running forced induction. Duh.

I agree. Throttle body spacers are retarded. I don't think there any unused ports on the intake manifold and why wreck a good manifold just for a port.

thats why you just get a CAI, when it gets that whistle it almost sounds like a turbo... or if you want the sound of a supercharger go with the pullies... so technically I have a turbo/supercharged 3.0..... lol
