    Could someone educate me on these?
    Any dyno graphs with this thing on?
    While the HP gains are minimal, it does in fact add a small amount of HP. Nothing crazy, but it all adds up in the bigger picture.

    Horsepower gains will be minimal I'd say around 4 to 6 hp at most. I would imagine there would also be slightly increased throttle response as well.
    HP gains are minimal 4 or 6 HP at the best. Throttle response is slightly better too. The real benefit is the two taps for accessories. Here is a picture of mine. On the left side here you see I am using it as a vacuum source for my blow off value. On the right side of the picture I have a 90 degree fitting that I am using for my boost gauge. You can get these fittings dirt cheap at Home Depot, just make sure you buy the correct size. And also make sure you install them PRIOR to installing the throttle body spacer.

    Hey Jason, thanks for sharing a pic of what you've been working on. Now let's see some pics of your boost gauge.

    Do you/anyone know how connect the tap on the throttle body spacer to an HKS BOV. Do you just run the tube from the spacer to the tip of the HKS hose leaving the vacumm filter in place? What do you do with the little 12 volt box that the HKS normally hook's up to and the tubes that connect to it ?

    This is a great question. I've never actually heard of someone hooking it up this way, so I'll let some of the more experienced members chime in on this one.

    Ok I gotta hand it to David and K5os for the fastest shipping and most down to earth customer service he gives. I was on the fence about this purchase but I'm glad got it now. Took 1 hour to install. And definitely could tell a difference in initial throttle response. Also the other difference is I went from averaging 22mpg city up to 25.5 city. I have really learned how to use my insta fuel mpg gauge and keeping my gas consumption low. I drive daily all around my County for work and went 9 days before filling up. Also added a k&n drop in filter which I will be switching out for the full k&n intake that I'll be purchasing from k5os. Thanks for the awesome products!
