    I have a 2000 4.7 AC Tundra. I did buy/run an Airaid Throttle Body Spacer on it. But tonight I just found this throttle body spacer for $30. It’s 1.25” not 1” so that means more air which = more power. Anyways has anyone ran this or runs it now??

    Save your money. Spacers don't add any benefit on a fuel injected engine.

    Well it’s a little too late for that because the Airaid spacer was the third mod I bought for my truck. I was just curious if anyone has ever ran this Denso Spacer that’s bigger and only $30 rather than $130 like the Airaid one.

    I would imagine that if it had any effect at all, it would reduce low/mid-range torque.

    Very few of us here buy TB spacers because they are basically nothing more than a paperweight in most cases. Someone will chime in that's used one with positive results.......possibly.

    Having multiple spacers will come in handy when tuning that new NOx set up.

    Oh, your not injecting fuel BEFORE the spacer - then ya, all your doing is playing with air flow. Changing your air filter will have more impact than a spacer.

    If you like the way it looks or makes you feel better, then it's great.

    I have heard that these spacers can lighten the load on your wallet.

    thats a mass air flow spacer. all it does is trick the engine into running differently and can actually cause problems.

    By that logic you should start stacking spacers or run one huge 24" one and make mad power

    the only spacers that have dyno proof to make power are plenum spacers. of which no one makes for these trucks

    The factory gaskets are pretty thick. Just stack 4 together per side.

    I say go for it. But for all of our edification's, please do a dyno run before and after and report the results. We need science here! My gut says this is a total waste of money. Cause it is.

    Empty beat me to it. You said throttle body but that says maf sensor, different item completely. Besides it says the bore is 1.25", not the thickness of the plate. The bore in your intake is less than an inch for the maf I believe.

    I wouldn't mess with that.
