Hey guys,

Was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of throttle body spacers for the I6 engine. From what i understand these spacers are fitted between the TB and intake plenum and create a swirling action for the air. My mate (IN2XG) has a helix one his BA XR8 and it sounds mad as. Is also supposed to increase power by a little but though i doubt the difference is noticeable.

Is there such a thing, i want one!

Cheers, Kyron.

not sure there is 1 for the i6
i would say it is more for a tourqe factor as the swirling will increase turbualce in the intake tract allow much better fuel air mixing = better burn

these things work ok for some cars, but given the design of the BBM manifold I doubt they do anything other than restrict airflow.
