Throttle Bottle Spacer

I have a quick question, do you guys know where I can purchase a throttle bottle spacer? I have no clue of where to find them, and what do they actually do?

the tb spacer v1 (old) can only be found my members selling them when they part their car out or soemthing.. the company who made them stop making them. thats why it sell so fast, becuase hardly ne one has them really who want them..

it's suppose to give you 1-2 hp, something that you cant really feel at all.. it also helps with your fuel economy a little bit, i'm not exactly sure as to how much, but not a lot. The reason why people buy this product is becuase at a certain rpm, when you release the gas pedal, it makes a unique sound similiar to a blow off valve in a turbo, which sorta makes people think you have turbo...

good luck finding it, you'll have to keep your eyes out as much as possible in the for sale section to catch one of these...

they are probably the newer version that doesnt make the sound... everyone wants to old one instead of the new one.

I had helix TB spacer on my previous 2002 AV6, and it does sound pretty cool.

Don't expect blow-off valve sound or typical turbo spooling sound. If you do,
it'll disappoint you. but it does make cool whistling sound when you slightly let go of
the gas, or make around 80~90% throttle position.
Sound gets loudest when you WOT until redline and let go of the gas pedal slightly
before shifting. thats when it makes that "swooosh" sound.

I don't want to sound like a ricer, but damn. it was pretty damn cool.
Members have confirmed second version of helix doesn't make this sound(second version
is released to prevent that sound), and I also heard someone who bought OBX spacer
and didn't hear the same noise.

Unless the person heard both Helix and OBX spacer, they wouldn't really know.
honestly, if you got free money to spend and want cool sound, get this.
