Taylor Cable works a bit different than ordinary performance outfits. That is, they like to use tested technology to give you the most power possible. The Helix Power Tower PLUS Throttle Body Spacer? Well, it's a perfect example of the Taylor Cable difference.
Bottom-end spacers are just a slab with a bored hole. One notch up, you've got the slab with a bored hole and fins that whistles while it works. Then comes the Helix Power Tower PLUS Throttle Body Spacer's expert crafting and design. The difference? The Helix Power Tower PLUS is dyno and flow bench tested to create perfect air turbulence, better detonation, and more power.
How much power? Try up to 22 HP with up to a 25 ft. lb. torque chaser, depending on your driving style. And mileage? Well, if you're into backing off the gas a bit to save a few bucks, you can get up to 4 MPG back.

I bought this throttle body spacer not expecting much out of it and it provide me right. The installation was easy but after a few tanks of gas i couldn't really tell a difference with my MPG, it went from 15.1 to 15.2 with the throttle body spacer. The power and torque wise you can for sure tell a little difference i think it made my truck a little quieter while my wife thinks it got louder. Overall for the price its alright buy it and see if you have better luck then i did.

I was looking for ways to improve the bottom end torque, so I decided to try the TB spacer. Well, I don't notice any power gains but I have noticed a gain in mileage. Running my usual route to work, I was averaging 23 mpg. With the TB spacer, I'm now getting between 25 to 27 mpg! I'll take the gas savings anytime. Just be careful when installing because the intake is plastic and it's very easy to strip out the bolts if you don't use a torque wrench.

I've tested the gas mileage difference between having this addition and not having it and still haven't came to a good conclusion. It seems like I've added a few MPG, but nothing too crazy. The sound is good and it was easy to install. I'll know more once I tune the vehicle. I'm very happy with it. Thanks for reading.

08 F150 SuperCrew 4x4 5.4L stock with K&N 57 series intake. Had to rig the installation a little since I have a K&N intake that puts an elbow between the TB and the manifold. I still installed it on top of the manifold rather than directly behind the TB bacause there is a corkscrew lip that goes down into the manifold a bit. If installed behind the TB the lip would potrude into the elbow and actually disrupt proper airflow. I also had to use different length bolts than the ones supplied because they are for stock application. Before install I drove very conservatively for 1 tank in town and then again only Highway at 75 mph, both with 93 octane. In town I saw 12.5 mpg and HWY I saw 15.9 mpg. After install I drove the same test and saw 13.5 in town and 17.1 HWY. I did not expect to see any gains without having it programmed so I was surprised to even see 1 mpg. No difference in felt power or acceleration so dont get excited there. Good product, a little pricey, but it does in fact help. Just dont expect to see the 4 mpg change they advertise unless you have an intake, exhaust, and custom tune for your specific setup (if you don't often purchase aftermarket items, thats where they trick you with the numbers and use the words "up to" meaning you could possibly see said gains in perfect conditions on a slight downhill with other complimenting aftermarket parts). But once you have all the right peices, they work together nicely and you will see that 4 mpg gain.

I'm glad this Throttle Spacer don't whistle. I don't like the Whistle sound that a lot of others have. I feel a little more horsepower, But a lot of torqe. Don't see a increase of gas mileage. But that's fine. I got it for the increase of a little more power.

I was skeptical about a piece of aluminum with a hole drilled in it and whether it would work. Was I surprised! Delivery was quick. Install was about an hour. Throttle response was excellent across the entire rpm/speed range (from 0-80mph). I don't know whether Taylor planned this but the spacer creates a whistling noise on acceleration. This may be due to the "swirling effect" from the volutes in the spacer.I will be towing my 4000lb TT to New Orleans in Sept. Will update review.
