Can you run ITBs with a turbo?
Can you run ITBs with a turbo?
Yes you can fit throttle bodies and a turbo, but the gains of bodies over using an inlet plenum are not that big enough to justify doing so on a forced induction lump…
How much horsepower will a throttle body spacer add?
They are very easy to install and contain other parts to increase vehicle performance. This is an inexpensive way to increase power and torque. With a throttle body spacer, it is possible to increase the torque by 25 ft lbs and add up to 18 more horsepower.
How does a throttle body spacer improve performance?
Also, the spiral flow that results from a throttle body spacer offers much better combustion. If the vehicle has a carburetor, then the spacer improves the vacuum response which increases the performance. It also provides some extra height in the fuel to air mixture. This gradual flow into the intake ports increases the possible torque response.
How does aFe Power Silver Bullet throttle spacer work?
aFe Power Silver Bullet throttle body spacers use a unique serrated/helix design to agitate the air flow just prior to entry into the engine block. The agitated air stream atomizes the fuel in the combustion chamber for a more complete burn cycle resulting in increased horsepower, torque and improved throttle response.
Why does a car have a body spacer?
If the vehicle has a carburetor, then the spacer improves the vacuum response which increases the performance. It also provides some extra height in the fuel to air mixture. This gradual flow into the intake ports increases the possible torque response. Because the throttle body spacer allows for more air, the engine does not have to work as hard.
How much horsepower does a NASCAR body spacer give?
The NASCAR spacer might give 2% more peak power, about 14 hp on a 700 hp engine in the 8000+ rpm range. Modern production engines have intake manifolds and associated systems designed to produce the most torque (and therefore horsepower) across the rpm range used during normal part-throttle (pedal NOT to the metal) driving.
Does a throttle body spacer really work?
Throttle body spacers can work in some applications; all engines are different, and it’s not impossible that the additional plenum volume could help to compensate for a deficit from the factory. So you may see a bit more horsepower and midrange torque, depending on the car.
Does a throttle body spacer really help?
One of the main benefits of a throttle body spacer is an increase in horsepower. Ultimately, the spacer increases the air velocity which causes an increase in atomization. Also, the spiral flow that results from a throttle body spacer offers much better combustion.
What does a throttle body spacer do?
Throttle body spacers are a pieces of metal used to change the airflow into the intake manifold. The spacer is bolted on the back of the throttle body, downstream of the main airflow. This is strictly an aftermarket enhancement used to increase the fuel economy, torque and horsepower.
Do throttle body spacers do anything?
Throttle Body spacers don’t do anything. Intake spacers are arguably better. They lengthen the intake runners, which is proven to be beneficial in creating torque. That, and after a 4 hour drive, I was able to hold my hand on the upper intake as long as i wanted.
