Throttle Body Spacer plate for 2008 LV 6 enigine

Post by boflynn1641 »

Hello, I have finally been able to get regestered and get logged in.From what I have been able to read on this site so far several folks have mentioned adding a throttle body spacer on their engines. The problem I am having is finding a spacer for the 2008 LV6. Gene at Street Performance has been very helpful but he doesn't kmnow if there is a plate for this engine. Can anybody please advise if they have found a spacer for a 2008 and where they got it.Thank You !!

You must not have seen the cylinder-swap-arrangement that enginenutballdotcom had on sale.... just like those vacuum cleaner motors ebay sells as superchargers...The LV6 is the GM engine code for the 1ZZ-FE... I'm surprised that they didn't put little stickers with GM approved codes on every little compnent on the Vibe that has a Toyota part number... (I bet someone in marketing has suggested this)http://www.streetandperformanc...m.htm Always remember to look up cars with the same engine (Matrix, Corolla, XB, XD...)

I did buy one for $85. Lost power, no increase in mileage, sold it for $50 after a week. Not worth the investment unless you plan on supercharging down the road.

I agree with this since I had the same experience that I need to sell mine for a lower price. Not worth it for me.

I hope the cost is still the same and not affected with the inflation.
