Your probably not going to get a response to this because everyone is hellbent against these. Something to do with the beer keg design of the intake. I thought about it until I read around and as far as I have read they've just been known as paper weights. Save your money and get something else. Unless it's free then try it and see what happens. Cant hurt right?

i have the helix power tower and was not worth the $90. i would take that money and make a home made cold-air-intake very please with the add preformance of mine. the intake costed me $45. the throttle body spacer does alittle but its is limited because the fuel jets are at the end of the manifold.

Hey there shlaven. You are lucky you received some PLEASANT replies.

There are some who would have flamed you for not searching, etc. :)


Anyway. I agree. SAVE the dough and make a intake tube or something. The 2HP from that will be much more than the TB spacer LOL!

galyion, i really wouldn't waste the money on one. maybe though if the engine would benefit from a little more plenum volume it may help in the upper rpms, but i doubt it. i know it doesn't benefit the design if the kegger manifold but have read that it may help some on the newer OHV 4.7's & 3.7's. to me it's not worth the money.

While the plates alone are a waste of time, money and horsepower, there are great for nitrous nozzles or just a paper weight.
