Justin from AmericanMuscle.com, we're here with Chris Thompson from Airaid. He stopped by the shop to tell us a little more about these great Airaid products. We're very familiar with Airaid; we use them on our project cars with great success. Chris, what can you tell us about Airaid that makes it so unique? "Everything we do is digitally designed. It's engineered to fit, it's engineered to work, it's engineered to work without any special tuning. Now, tuning is much, much better. You guys offer a lot of great choices in aftermarket tuning. It'll only enhance the performance of the Mustang. We design our intakes so there's no special gluing required, there's no cutting or hacking of the engine required. If somebody decided to put a stock intake back on, they don't have to go back to Ford to buy another part to put the piece back on. Every intake we do is digitally designed. It's all about the design of the airflow and the linear charge to the throttle body. We use the rotational molding not so much for the heat soaking, but for the shape of the tube we can come up with. By using the rotational molding, it allows us to really give the right shape and form to make sure the product works well." We're very excited—we've got our 2013 Mustang here, probably not even 10 miles on this thing yet, and we already have an Airaid intake on it. Tell us a little more about that. "This is awesome. We're really excited to be here today. This is the first Airaid intake on a 2013 Mustang. We're really excited to be here with you guys. As you can see it fits. We know for sure it fits. We believe we have a hit. We'll do a little bit more testing on it before we release it to the public, but that should happen anytime now." Now, you were telling me earlier, you're working with some legends in the Mustang world. "Well, we're excited about working with Parnelli Jones and his son PJ. Parnelli's been instrumental in helping us come along with the Boss 302 intakes we're trying to develop. Nobody knows the heritage of the Boss 302 better than Parnelli Jones. We worked with PJ on the side by side utility vehicles (Razors, Rhinos, and TRX's). We also sponsored him in the past on his endeavors in the American Le Mans Series, which he ran last year." Chris, thank you so much for educating us on your great Airaid products. And as always, you can find those great Airaid products right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

The Whistle So, I've heard mixed reviews about the 'whistle' sound this spacer makes. Honestly, is it annoying like your belt is squeeking or is it a turbo type that sounds cool?

LyonNinja

  • Personally, I love the whistle this part creates. In my opinion, it sounds more like a turbo whistle than anything else. When you're cruising, the sound kind of fades into the background, but you really hear it when you punch the throttle, especially between 2000-3500 RPM (in my case).

When I installed the throttle body spacer on my 05 V6 I noticed that it really strained the wires connecting the throttle body (there's no slack left). Is there a way to relieve the tension on the wires caused by the installation of the throttle body spacer?

Blackonblack

  • With the Airaid Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer installed, the wires may be a little snug if they are caught, however, if you tracer the wire and free it from any interference, you should have enough slack to remove the strain on the wires.

    well lets start off with the bolts that came with this spacer. THEY SUCK! when it was all finished i was so excited after hearing all these great reviews but when I started my car, it sounded like my mustang was dying. extremely annoying sound. I knew it was gonna whistle but I didnt realize how bad it would be and loud. I have a BBK throttle body, Araid CAI all with a Bama tune and after I put this product on, my car seemed like it was being held back. my car runs great and is extremely fast with out this spacer. Im so sad that i have to write this bad review after all the other great products from AM and Araid.

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      Unfortunately, this throttle body spacer is intended for use with a stock throttle body only. Reason being is that if you upgrade your TB, as you did to the BBK TB, the MM bore on your aftermarket TB is now larger than that of the stock TB. Similarly, this spacer has the stock bore size and you essentially block some of the airflow by installing this spacer with an aftermarket TB. Give us a call and we can help you with a return if you wish!

    Quick & Easy

    As my title says, it was a quick and easy install. It too me all of between 15-20mins to install it properly. One thing I don't remember the instructions mentioning was that, yes, the original bolts are 5/16 heads, but the NEW ones are 10mm. Other than tat, it was easy, well marked and yes, you get the whistle, but its minor price to pay for the easy boost. The paperwork says up to 25 ft/lbs of torque and 4mpg gain. I can already see the gain in the estimated mileage and the throttle response is much smoother. I'd say its definitely worth it.

    Nice Little Upgrade

    This is a very easy install. Took about 15 minutes. The gasket was a little big. Stuck out on both sides of the spacer. Not a problem, but looked bad. Trimmed it down. Bolts were the right length. Have no idea about hp, torque or mpg increase without a dyno, but throttle response is improved. I did get the whistle for about 30 seconds after start up, but it went away. Which made me happy, because there was no way that noise sounded like a turbo. My feminine side really likes the red anodizing - matches my Redfire paint. Did I just say that?

    Impressive Gain in Hp and Torque

    After installing the Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer I was impressed on how much power my car gained, the improvement was noticeable right away when I stepped on the throttle. Before I had the body spacers my car's stock exhaust wouldn't make a popping sound, but when installed it, it made a popping noise and sounded aggressive!!! I can't imagine how it's gonna sound with the Roush CatBack Exhaust I ordered and Pypes X-Pipe!!! I DO RECOMMEND THIS ITEM!!:)

    Airaid Poweraid TBS

    I had this installed today, along with an Airaid CAI. As many other reviews have mentioned, this part does whistle. Personally, I love the sound. You get a soft, low-pitch whistle while cruising, but you really hear it when you put the hammer down. I even noticed myself having to let off the gas due to the increased pull. Haven't tested the MPG difference yet, but I'll post when I have some solid numbers. As of now, I recommend this product.

    avoid this unless you want the sound.

    I bought one of these in the early stages of modding my v6. It made lots of noise. I sold mine for $5. I had 3 different tuning shops it was actually nothing more than a paper weight. It offered no improved performance and may actually hurt performance. I never felt a change with it to without it until I added a cai. With a cai and this I did feel more seat of the pants torque without it.

    The MPG is unreal!

    Spacer is installed. I went from 23.9 mpg to 29.7 driving the exact same road I drove last night before the spacer. Considering the V6 mustang is rated 17 city/ 23 highway I'll call this a win. The low end torque is up as well. I barely have to tap the gas in 5th gear to accelerate. The whistle? It's more like a chirp and I only hear that in my garage with the hood up and windows down. Mission accomplished!

    Quick easy and totally worth 100$$

    Only took about 15 minutes to install and I could not be more happy with the results! Not only does it make my 2010 v6 mustang run like a dream and add faster throttle response and speed. It also makes it sound beastly and adds an incredible whistling noise whenever you hit the gas peddle. I definitely recommend this product if your looking for a little more kick in your pony.

    Great Modification for $100

    This is a great little device to throw on your pony. I have a VG with a CAI and performance exhaust. Had this spacer installed too, and can really notice the difference. Don't expect Supercharger gains for 100 bucks, but you will get more oomph off the line, and better mid-range acceleration and torque. And the short whining sound is actually very cool. Like a pseudo turbo or something. Plus, the red anodized finish looks great. I highly recommend this product - you cannot go wrong.

    I purchased the Airaid Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer and installed it during the weekend. It took no more than 30-40 mins to install the part. To make everything work together, I also installed a new BBK cold air intake along with a SCT SF3 Power Flash custom 91 octane performance tune. With the combination of all of these...wow! I have definitely noticed an increase in horsepower and torque. My car takes off like a bullet. I highly recommend the Airaid Throttle Spacer.

    Don't waste your money

    I bought this thinking that I would only have a whistle at start up an idle, but I was very wrong. The whistle is very loud at reasonable driving speeds/throttle positions. You can especially hear it with the windows down! As far as the whistle goes it can sound cool between shifts, but when you're driving through a parking lot or your neighborhood it is not cool to sound like you have a belt problem!! The product fits but made me a little worried about hood clearance with my CAI. Overall I have kept this product on just based on the premise of I didn't want to just throw away $100. Only pro is the tq gain is noticeable and is helpful when you don't want to downshift to pass someone. Overall this product is a waste of money.

    Does its job

    It compliments the sound from the cold air intake I have. You can hear the air flow much better with the whistle sound. As for power don't expect much if any. It does help with better throttle response. Fuel efficiency is the same maybe a bit better but nothing to brag about. You get what you pay for. If u want serious power buy a tuner. If u want to reduce the throttle lag the V6 has this will help and give a nice sound.

    Easy Add-On

    The reviews that I have read about this product were mixed. I can say that I have read about throttle body spacers, and how they can give you more torque. The installation was very easy to do, and is very straight forward even if you don't have any instructions. People have said that the install bolts are bad, but I have to disagree. They fit perfectly, and without any problems. Air Raid recommends disconnecting the negative terminal on your battery, and you should do this so that your computer can recalibrate. I have noticed, that I have gotten about 3 more mpg, better throttle response, and there is a slight whistle when you step on the gas when taking off. Having a manual transmission in my car I think that the whistle is toned down a little, but when timed right you will definitely get looks when taking off from a standing start at a light. For some easy torque gains and some better gas mileage, I would have to say that this is a great starting add-on for anyone, and teamed with a CAI and a tune you will definitely see the gains using the stock throttle, all for about the same price of just an aftermarket throttle body.
