Re: Throttle body spacer


I see what you mean in relation to the pic, however (I cant find the packaging for my spacer...we just moved and it probably got chucked emoticon ) the OBX I installed had a "wide to narrow" thread pattern that that went through the spacer.
Pretty bad description, but hopefully you should get what I am trying to say.. emoticon
Very similar to 2 posts down...but different emoticon
Cheers

Re: Throttle body spacer


Hi Chris,

The spacer goes between the throttle body and the intake manifold.
If one side of the spacer has "TB side" marked on it, then this tells you which side faces the throttle body and hence which way around it fits.
Just have a look at the throttle body face which contacts the intake manifold to determine the rotation of the spacer so that the profile lines up correctly.

If so, this looks like a cosmetic item only as the grooves are circular and won't do anything to generate the needed swirl inside the intake manifold.



Well it would still lengthen the intake ducting length and slightly alter the factory tuning of the intake, abit like the internal variable-length intake, just like the original run of the TBS's...

Re: Throttle body spacer


Thanks for the input guys, I fitted it yesterday. Yes Jalal it seems to be the same one as the picture you posted but it is no pretender. The improvements are pretty much as already discribed by others in this thread.
Before fitted, my car would idle at about 900rpm in N & P, slightly less in D. It now idles at 1000rpm in N, & slightly less in P & D. This seems a bit high to me. I didnt do any resets as I did not disconect the battery or any sensors. Should I leave it & see if the car relearns or should I perform any reset.

Update
Since initial post I did an ECU reset. The idle speed has dropped back to 900rpm, I took the car for a spin 'round the block & it feels GR8 emoticon
I even located the fuse removal tool (thanks to the forum).

Re: Throttle body spacer


The OBX spacer works well. At the moment the spacers works out to be $60 aus dollars ($50 USA) plus shipping. Bargain for the gains acheived.

Re: Throttle body spacer


Pulled mine off today to check and it is as pictured by OBX..took the opportunity to clean the intake, tighten hose clamps and check the plugs. Can also report that the Scanguage does report faultcodes and can reset the ECU after deliberately leaving the TBS and Intake air sensor off and starting the car...
Happy with that

Re: Throttle body spacer


I am happy with it mate emoticon
I put the intake back together without it and went for a drive after resetting the idle, just to remind myself what it was like. I can definately feel a difference in the low down throttle response (when I plant it) with the spacer in.
Seems to respond faster and get through the revs better (purely subjective butt dyno stuff of courseemoticon )

My idle with the spacer in afterr a reset, is around 900 on the dash guage, but the Scanguage reading is giving a constant 700 in neutral
