    The I have a 2010 5.7 with k&n cold air.. Looking for something just to add on. My cold air has a pretty loud little whistle to it. Didn't know if the spacer would make that pitch any louder. It worth it ?

    I had a throttle body spacer on my first gen, never notice any difference. Don't waste your money.

    It should make the intake louder at full throttle. It did on my last lifted truck but I didn't notice anything on the butt dyno or any difference of the mpg's. I used to have a 6 speed V-6 Accord that had CAI that went into the bumper vent, I put TBS on it and I did notice a gain on the butt dyno.

    It's not the cai making the noise, it's the waffle gasket right behind the throttle body that makes the whistle. Sequoias have a different gasket. You can replace yours with one or take the existing gasket out and clip the waffle out. It doesn't make any difference in performance. I replaced mine with a Sequoia gasket.

    Gary, You nailed that. I thought you had that "fix" here in an earlier post. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:


    It's real hard to keep up on all the good posts here like yours. We have to keep paying attention and bump these great posts up when necessary. As if I've/We have got nothing else to do. There is a lot of info here. I even have to go back and check before I post. I still miss things. That's why we have Sean and Brian to "help".............

    It's one thing to help someone here to spend $$. Let us make sure the $ is not wasted.
