07-12 GM Truck/SUV/Car 4.8 - 6.2L Econoaid Throttle Body Spacer is designed to fit between your factory throttle body and your intake manifold. Econoaid Throttle Body Spacer spins the incoming air as it passes through the throttle body and over the Econoaid blades. The turbulent air charge is carried through past intake valves for better atomization and more complete combustion. The Econoaid Throttle Body Spacer will give you a crisper throttle response, along with better gas mileage. Unlike other spacers, the Econoaid Throttle Body Spacer installs easier and faster. The Econoaid is only a fraction of an inch thick, 0.030 inch actually. Other spacers are as much as a 1 inch thick, necessitating additional hardware, complicating installation and adding to cost. The main benefit of the Econoaid is the fuel savings. The results of this fuel saving device will always vary depending on vehicle type, driving habits, age of the vehicle, and driving environment, among other factors. However, from customer reports, the average vehicle will see an extra 1-3 miles per gallon and produce an extra 6-10 feet pounds of torque, which can be felt from the increased low-end throttle response. The Econoaid Throttle Body Spacer will pay for itself in no time, especially with current increasing gas prices. Econoaid come complete with all necessary gaskets, detailed installation instructions, and reuses the factory hardware. Installation requires only simple hand tools and usually only takes about 30 minutes. Econoaid made in the USA.

I have been Running this in my 2010 Silverado1500 with a programmer, cold air intake, as well as exhaust. for about a year and a half now. Unfortunately, my gas mileage stayed the same, 15mpg city/18mpg highway. I run mid-grade gas all the time, I do tow a trailer quite often during lawn care season, so that may affect the long term mileage a little bit, but either way. From my personal experience, it didn't do much for performance, gains were very minimal, it does have a slightly louder sound over stock, nothing obnoxious, but that is about it.
3 Stars. Would I buy it again, probably not just from my experience. Nothing gained, nothing lost. Unless you consider the $30 I spent on it.
Don't buy this if you plan on putting it in a truck that is "drive by wire". The problem isnt wheather it works, because it does create more power and better accelleration, but it also causes the PCM to monitor the better airflow and meter in more fuel to compensate and keep the fuel/air ratio to mixture spec. I put it in a 2009 Tahoe LTZ with the 5.3L and although I enjoyed the power and acceleration, I didn't like the decrease in gas mileage.
Little to no noticeable difference in terms of noise or power but it makes me feel better knowing that I'm churning up the air under the hood for better "atomization."
