my son has a 99 dakota 5.2 litre, he has done just a few mild upgrades, (exhuast and intake) and now is considering a throttle body upgrade, so the question is has anyone tried one of these spacers like an airaid or transdapt etc?, are they worth installing?, seems like a simple principle to help swirl the air, also they make upgraded throttle bodys but they of course are a lot more, his current one works fine so reluctent to change that, thanks

ok thanks thats kinda what I thought to, I thought someone would have tried one, and it seems there was little difference, they arnt very expensive, there is also performance throttle body assemblys available, I think holley or maybe edlebrok dose one, they are a lot more money and it seems there would possibly be some real gains there?, anyone tried one?

well it seems this too would also be a waste of time and money however Bob you mentioned that the throttle body would make little difference unless mods were done to the intake and exhaust, this truck dose have a magnaflow 3" dual exhaust and a full airaid intake system, would that be enough or are you talking about replaceing the intake manifold to something different, I didnt realize there were different intake options for injection?, and I wonder if the throttle body upgrade would improve airflow or just aid in dumping in more fuel?

well thanks for the help again, guess we will stick with what he has as we wernt looking to go too drastic, this truck is just the daily driver his 80 Dodge is the toy so I think we will concentrate our performance energy on that especially since it seems any more mods done on the 99 from this point forward will end up consuming more fuel which is what we dont want on a daily driver, thanks
