Default Tornado + T-Body Spacer?

Hey, I recientally purchased a Throttle body spacer,I'm really pleased with the proformance it's given me in the lower RPM range, and even all the way through the RPM Range, But I was just wondering if I were to get the Tornado Air Management Swirler Thing, would that mess up the air flow? and make it spin a different way? or would it increase my air flow even more? Thanks for the help.

All that's gonna do is give you better gas milage.

I would have used the T-Body spacer when you got a supercharger.

I love what Kenne Bell says about those things... It's exactly what I think
Quote:
What is the most ridiculous aftermarket product? Hands down, it's the "little intake fans" and the "throttle body spacers" with the bore grooves. Right there on the list has to be those "underhood exposed filters" that suck in 200 underhood air instead of ambient (70-100 air from the fenderwell). 10 air temp rise is -1% HP. That's how dynos are calibrated for temperature changes. Does anyone really believe that all those OEM manufacturers designed expensive plastic inlet systems - for the last 20 years - that pull cool air from the fenderwell, hood or grill because they didn't have anything else to spend their money on? Then there's those "factory calibrated" mass air meters that do not use a chip or re-calibrated processor with oversize injectors. They unwittingly reduce the voltage signal to the mass air meter to compensate for the larger injectors at WOT but they neglect all the driveability issues. The result is over advancing timing, lean mixtures, detonation, surging, bucking etc.

I know from personal experience that the Tornado is a $70 paper weight.

Ya, I won't waste my money. But the throttle body spacer has definatelly given me more power in the lower RPM range, and for $80.00 I feel a big big power gain for the money.

Intake spacer is a Phenolic spacer, it goes between your upper and lower intake manifold. Having a greater distance between the 2 makes sure that your air coming in is nice and cool, and that the heat is not going from your engine to your Intake.
