You can feel a slightly better throttle response and more low end torque. Several people have asked if I have a turbo because of the whistle. Great addition!

How are the performance gains? Are there any HP gains in numbers? Like a Dyno? Will it serve good purpose on the track?


  • I haven't had it dynoed but I can tell you there really isn't much noticeable gains because there would need to be a lot more added volume in that area. To be able speed up the air a bit, and allow more air in there to help the engine breath better, you would need a larger/longer spacer. I had this exact one and the only real noticeable difference is the nice whistle it makes. Maybe there are slight gains but from my experience of having one, there's not much you can feel. A cold air intake with a tune will make real gains.

Will this fit if I have the BBK 73mm throttle body and Airaid CAI?


  • This TB spacer is designed to be used in conjunction with the stock throttle body only, not a larger mm aftermarket TB. Also, this spacer won't fit properly with the Airaid Cold Air Intake. If you already have both the BBK TB and Airaid CAI, my suggestion is to simply keep the set up you have!

Will this fit on a 2013 GT or is it for V6 only? I have a GT will this fit or is it only for a V6?


  • This item will only work on V6 mustangs. This is due to the size (and shape) difference of the throttle bodies on these two model vehicles.

What is the known compatability with Roush CAI? I have an appointment in a few weeks to install some things at Roush, one being a cold air induction unit, and I would like to know if this fits with it. If it does, I will buy as soon as you get it in.


  • It will work with a cai, the unit comes with longer throttle body bolts which work great

    Doesn't do anything

    I installed this product and drove shortly after, there is absolutely no power gained I feel like it took a little longer to get up and go than usual but that could just be my expectations let down. but there is unmistakably no whistle at all with my 2015 the product labels, and arrow of flow are also not present on this, along with there being Knicks and scratches all over it. Needless to say I will be returning this product.

    Interesting mod

    This product was pretty interesting when I read it. I was a skeptic about it when i first got it. But it really works. Installation: not hard at all. Had a few tools laying around and it was easy to do. I installed it and dod not hear the whistle though. Directions of product was correct, maybe i tightened it too much? But @ 80 mph, crusing, normally it'll get 27-28mpgs. Driving the same way, I'm now getting 29.7-30mpg. My normal crushing highway driving is 33-34 as an average. I did it so I could get the rebate, which justified it more to me. No complains, sipping gas, and getting she doesn't vibrate as much as before in the low rpms. It makes your pulls from low rpms feel more solid and effective. I drive the 6 speed doing 80-100 miles a day, and i shift at 1300rpms (low, i know) and it used to vibrate a lot, but hardly does now. She rolls and sounds good. I hooked up an aftermarket cold air intake and i still get the same mpgs, or at worst, minus 1 mpg in everything. I love it. Definitely would get one if I had a GT, but this is my daily so i look for more long term effective mods like this. Definitely recommend for daily drivers or people wanting to mod the car.

    Throttle Body Spacer

    Ive always had doubts on these because of the mixed reviews but I decided to give it a tryon my mustang because I trust anything AM offers and if nothing else i knew i would love the whistle. I am very pleased with this spacer, there is definately an improvement in low end torque, I can make it up the steep hill by my house now without downshifting and slamming the gas that was my real test and the added power is easy to feel in the 1500-3000 rpm range. The way i drive i cant really make statement towards gas mileage but i would suggest this as an easy bolt on for any mustang owner

    Power Aid Spacer

    I've used this product before and really enjoy the extra HP gains as well as the gas mileage. my only dislike is taking off the factory clips on one of the hoses. I highly reccomend getting a cold air intake with this as well to maximize the bennefits of the spacer.

    Does not fit with Airaid CAI

    I installed the Airaid CAI (sounds great with noticed performance increase). However, after I bought the TB spacer and I received the Airaid spacer I discovered it does not fit with the Airaid CAI. I discovered this while looking back at the Airaid CAI page. Unfortunately, the spacer page did not mention this. I thought it would work because the spacer page has customer images of aftermarket CAIs with the spacer. It turns out it is just the tight fit of the Airaid CAI. The JLT CAI will work with this spacer (plus JLT CAI gives 2 more ft./lbs torque with tuner). I told AM. Hopefully they will put a note on the spacer page. I got a refund for the spacer but had to pay shipping back.

    Sweet Sound!!!

    It only took me about 30-40 mins to install and the sound difference with my new CAI is definitely worth it alone. I don't know if I've gained any more power from spacer by itself but it feels/sounds much different with the CAI on there as well, I definitely recommend if you like the whistle sound.

    Not a bad product......

    Picked this up, because...with the price of gas, any gain in mileage/power for a decent price is worth trying. I drive from Ontario Canada to Columbus Ohio at least once a month so I'm always looking for ways to gain mileage....This product appears to have helped....I've gained(so far)at least 2-3 MPG, and I'm hoping it will continue to rise. For what it would be nice if it was somewhat cheaper(maybe $15-20?) but I'm hoping that It will pay for itself, which it seems to be doing as I'm already using 1/4 tank less between Ajax, Ontario and Angola N.Y.

    Great Buy

    Roush RS, 6 speed manual, Installation Easy And Directions Precise, took 1 hour, have seen performance increase and throttle response. Have been paying attention to MPG and have seen 3 mpg increase, far as the whistle goes, does not seem apparent to me but the roush exhaust might be covering that up or I am not paying attention specific for whistle, ( I did install directionally as the instructions and stamping on plate said) This will pay for itself after about 12 fill ups, recommend to all.

    Airaid Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer

    I have shown an increase of 3 mpg since installing the throttle body spacer. I can't tell if I'v gained HP, there has never been a problem with acceleration with my 2011 V6. I have previously installed a CLC cold air intake and Bama Tunes.

    Power-aid TB spacer

    After reading reviews about this product I decided I would give it a try. First off, the "whistle" sound is hardly audible. Of course this may also be the result of my stock airbox that I currently have on, so hopefully with the installation of my CAI it will become somewhat more audible. The spacer itself fit just right, the bolts as well. However, the breather hose that they included is WAY to small and will not go onto the male connecting parts. Luckily the stock hose does the job just fine. I did notice slight power increase. Not anything that really sends you further back in your seat, but there is a little gain. I would give this product more stars if it was not for those issues I listed. If I could go back, I think I would've spent my 120ish dollars on another part.

    The torque may have gone up but was not really noticeable. It was no wear near the 21 ft lbs advertised on the package. I have hopes that it will complement future mods down the road.

    Whistle all the way

    I have a 2012 v6 with airaid intake and magnaflow catback exhaust. After insralling this piece honestly i didnt believe the fact of the gain and i bought just cause it will look better under the hood since i take my car to events but after i put it, no kidding, the car sounds better, definetly more torque and i did notice a lik bit of gas saving but my favorite part its just that whistle. I thought it would just sound when u gas it a lil bit but actually it sounds all the time as long as u r gasing the car (kinda sounds like a lil turbo lol). I believe its a great opnion for the buck and the installation LOVED IT!!!

    Ok guys..I have a 2011 3.7 I ordered this and a BBK TB at the same time without reading reviews. I did read the reviews before I received them. I was a little uneasy about putting them together after reading the reviews. So, I thought, oh well. Now I have a Airaid TB Spacer, BBK TB, and a C/L Cold air. Megaflow off road, and custom tune.... This thing kicks for a V-6... 2nd Mustang. 350 Z, and a 550HP 2002 Lighting. American Muscle, You got this one wrong.. It works great...Oh, by the way this kid is 70 years old..
