    Nothing. It can be used as a stand-alone item. I have one on my Frontier (but I have since add a cat-back and CAI).

    I have one on my 5.3L and there is nothing to it. But its hard to get the stock intake tubing back on...

    well that was my excuse for buying a Fram boost intake.:bigthumb:

    The spacer...no. just a whistle... the intake a little. The exhaust, a little more... All of that, a "5 1/2 lift, 32/11.50 tires all went on in the the first couple of months that i got the truck so it was more of a give and take in the power dept.

    you finally say something worth listening to.

    unless you are TBI ... a spacer is nothing more than a 5 lb waste of cash
