Howdy, Has anyone used the Poweraid throttl body spacer, part#300-575, on their 2002 4.7 and had fault code P0456 show up?? Of course the dealer said that was the problem and can not find any probs with it or the installation. Thanks

For the billionth time...

There is no way a TB spacer can do anything good in front of the upper intake plenum on our 4.7L engines...

c'mon now Demon, give him a break,

Hell, I'm even going to start selling things like those, so I can get rich too. From fallacious advertising, and people like this ZC here, who will buy and install crap like this.


I looked it up, MIL #P0456- detection of addition to intake system, such an addition is detrimental to the width of the vehicle owners wallet, removal of such addition is absolutely necessary, and doesn't even really make a good paperweight.

KC, hang around awhile, use the search bar on this site, and you'll have that 4.7 doing awesome.

P0456 is one of several evaporative emmissions leak detected faults. Doesn't have a dang thing to do with the intake spacer (more on that in a second)...

If your gas cap is on, and tight, odds are your truck needs to have the PCM updated to correct this condition. It's a service bulletin for '02 Dakotas.

Step 1; find a new dealership. Step 2; have the evap properly diagnosed and the PCM flashed.

Intake spacers only serve to sap money from your wallet. The runners on a 4.7 are alread 36+ inches long, and tapered. You have been ripped off.
