performance question

Post by larrys2006 » July 2nd, 2019, 3:53 pm

Has anyone installed a spacer with their plenum? What brand did you use?

May be apples and oranges, but I put a spacer on my ex's Marauder a number of years ago, along with U/D pulleys at the same time. Can't say if either one makes a big difference by itself, but together they let the engine seem to "spool up" quicker and have a little better mid-range.

IMHO, you'd get more bang for your buck with the throttle body mod instead.

When I looked at a 2003 Ford E250 Van Throttle Body the parts system said it would not fit is that the wrong part?

What year is your car? If it's a 2006, then yeah...you have DBW.

I really need to learn how to read...I see it in your sig...now. I was confused by your screen name.

Yes, that TB will fit your car.
