Is this a TB spacer or an intake spacer? The other one is an intake spacer. Nobody makes a 2nd gen TB spacer, yet.

The TB Spacer is an interesting concept.
You won't be stepping on my toes to be sure.
As this is a different application of the same theory.
It would also allow you to run a much larger bore on the TB.
Or, even bolt a completely different TB to our cars....
Have you considered using a spacer to completely relocate the TB?
By integrating tubing with the spacer, you could in theory route the intake tract in any manner you wish. That is what I would be interested in.

What research do you have with your TB spacer?
Let's talk in the open about this.

I would like more info as well as I haven't done much research on this subject. What exactly is the concept behind the TB spacer as opposed to the intake spacer?

To be honest I'm not sure, all I know is that I can design and make the intake spacer, Im having a bit of trouble with the TB spacer but im sure I will figure it out in the next bit...

So does the TB spacer just basically displace the TB?

The TB spacer is supposed to act a similar to the intake manifold spacer that shadowvox made. I believe it is supposed to move the powerband down lower in the rpm range closer to where you drive more often. For example if your car makes 250hp/tq at 5500 rpm thats great - but how often do you drive around at 5500 rpm? Now use one of these fancy spacers and try and get that peak hp/tq down to 2500 - 3500 rpms where you drive more often and you have a great benefit.

Wouldn't it be possible to use the IM Spacer and TB Spacer in Orchestration. Instead of having one mod that reduces the Apex HP/TQ by 3000 RPMs, you could set it up so that each does 1000-1500. I'm not sure that's possible, though if it is, it might be redundant to have two doing the work one could.

I suppose the best thing to do would be to measure the RPM range you drive/run in the most and try to create an Apex HP/TQ environment in that range.

Maybe i'm just babbling... Maybe I'm just tired. Probably both.


BTW, You should probably post about pricing and effectiveness. People are going to want to caompare the two projects and see what return they can get for the money.
