Re: throtle body spacer

They do something on wet system but they do nothing for a dry system. I'm 99% sure our Jeeps are a dry system. What I mean by wet and dry (and I don't know the correct terminology to describe this but it's a common topic on my Chevy truck forum) IS for example, the older Chevy TBI engines are a wet system which I believe means the thing is fueled thru the throttle body were the later Vortec engine (like I have on mine) is dry, gas goes in after the TB. Does that make any sense??? In the later Chevys they do nothing for power or economy but the have an annoying whistling sound.

At least one Charger at the Nats ran one, quote:"no performance gain but a different throttle response" Your choice though. HTH Gene

They dont work.......you might as well put 100 octane in your tank.....another waste of money and time. Spacers were designed for carbs to change the manifold signal to the venturis......needless to say......you dont have a carb!!!
