How do I clean it? Can I just take off the air box and then spray it down with the power washer? :raspberry:

You definitely can, but others may want to avoid the power washer.

The TV article pics are marked, so no, you can't. If it was that simple I would be doing it!!:biggrin:

Please don't make me lose respect for you by telling me your adding a Throttle Body Spacer? There is absolutely no documented benefit!

Post it up on Craigslist and make 20 bucks, there will be no benefit at all to adding it to your truck!

I would still suggest cleaning your throttle body though if you haven't in a while.

For free...I might run it. It least to try it personally. Please do take several pics. Should make for a good resource. If you don't get to it I can do mine since it needs done.

There's a hint in there that the previous victim of the throttle body spacer ripoff mafia couldn't accept money from you. Unless you got it given to you as a gift by somebody who did zero research. :confused:

You would be amazed at the perfectly good and functional items I give away for free. If I cant use it and you need it, there is a good chance you get it for free, but that does not mean I ripped you off. Perfectly functioning spare tire setup and the spare tire and rim...I gave them away, doesnt make them any less valuable to someone else, but to me they were junk.:biggrin:

If someone gave me one, I would try it:yes:

I did give you that spare tire stuff first... The upgrades are a little different as they are still needed for use or funding the next upgrade:raspberry:

I took pics of my throttle body cleaning from last Friday, was going to make a thread this weekend but if you have it covered then I'll look at making a thread for another process.

i had one on my 03 ext (before i discovered the other site)
there was not any noticable difference from before it was put on.
so did one of these :bonk: and chalked it up to lesson learned.
