ok, i just installed my intake and TB spacer and when i rev my engine i hear a "psssst" sound. So i took that as my intake working. But also as i'm driving i can hear a high pitched whistle, sometimes when i hit the gas. Is that my TB spacer working properly or is something not installed and/or tightened enough?

Any feedback would help me out alot.

thanks, Kurt

The whistling you hear is the throttle body spacer. At idle it make make a slight sound.. Are you running the 2.2 or 4.3. 4.3 and you could have saved yourself the cost of the spacer....All you'll get is maybe 1 mpg more and a lot of "MENTAL" Horsepower...

yeah i can tell that there is a difference with it, and i got it at summit racing, it was $79.95. I think anyway give or take ten bucks. But its still pretty damn cheap.

Yea. I got mine from Summitt and it works pretty good for me. I did notice the difference from it after I installed it. I know thw 2.2 isn't much but it did pick it up a little. Does anybody know who makes a header for a 2000 and where can i get one? Thanks

Yeah, STS sells headers. I'm not sure how much they going for but they just came out for the 2.2L, i hope this helped you out.
