No, an aftermarket intake like K&N or Airaid will make your Trac run better. If the engine can breathe better it will run better. Get the better intake, and get a better exhaust. The truck will run much better.

Will a throttle body spacer make a difference to your expedition 1997 and how would I install it?

= Ford Throttle Body Spacer Description = In order for the engine of a Ford to run well, it needs a high volume of dense air coming into the combustion chamber at all times. Increasing the amount of air coming in to the engine will give the engine a power boost, and the Ford throttle body spacer is just the part to do the job. When installed, it will sit between the throttle body and the cold air intake. As the air comes into the Ford throttle body spacer, it is accelerated by a set of ridges that induces a vortex pattern into the flow. This allows the cold sir intake to move air in quicker. The Ford throttle body spacer also compresses the air, so that a larger amount will fit into the combustion chamber. The engine's computer will then increase the amount of fuel injected into the mixture, and when the combination is ignited, the resulting explosion will push the pistons down with more force. With the Ford throttle body spacer installed, the vehicle will gain several horsepower, and it will also see an increase in gas mileage. Because the hardware and gaskets that are required to install the Ford throttle body spacer are included in the kit, all that will be needed is a few simple tools. After the cold air intake is disconnected from the throttle body, and the gasket removed, the Ford throttle body spacer and gaskets can be installed. We carry the Ford throttle body spacer for many models in our online catalog, and with an easy, toll-free phone call or through our secure web site, the unit can be easily ordered.

Should i put a nitrous plate on top of or below my carb spacer on a small block Chevy?

The difference would in most cases be negligible, but the simple andswer is better. I would place the nitrous plate underneath your carb spacer right on top of the intake manifold if it is a multiholed spacer. Reason being is that if you have a multihole spacer, it may interfere with the nitrous flow and cause the atomized nitrous and gas to drop out of suspension and puddle. This can cause very bad issues if it builds up and there is a back fire through the intake. However the issue isn`t as much of a problem with an open spacer as there is negligible difference in flow impedance. Now the opposite might be true if you have a very low profile intake. In that case I recommend above an open spacer as it will keep the nitrous jetting from hitting the intake floor, which also would result in some loss of atomized mixture. Hope this has helped
