Which one to get on the 5/16 one there's 3 different kinds

Texasscout 03-12-2013 05:13 PM

No, you are a Newb, big difference.


If I remember correctly, the 5/16" spacer made the most power in dyno tests. You should start with that. Don't mess with replacing your air intake unless you just want more noise. Again, dyno test have shown that the stock air box is just fine. If you want to get every bit out of it, use one off a "rev-up" motor (05-06' 6MT only) it has a little better design.

A Newb is someone that's inexperienced with the task they are attempting. If they screw up, it's lack of knowledge and experience.

A NOOB is just too stupid to know he's in over his head. As Clint Eastwood said "a mans got to know his limitations".

ahhh, yes...big difference you're right! thanks for the clarification. this is my first forum and im not too familiar with all the slang yet haha. so motordyne or skunk2? this is my dilema currently...

Blue Dream 03-13-2013 01:57 PM

Motordyne hands down. Plus you are supporting a vendor of ours as well.

hopesNdreamz 03-13-2013 02:43 PM

then Motordyne it is!! cant wait to get it. ive heard people say 15-20 HP but is that to the fly or wheel? and is it true i could get a 2mpg gain?

Texasscout 03-13-2013 03:07 PM

I doubt the MPG gain, but you WILL feel the difference in the "Butt Dyno" department.

Just torque it in proper sequence and amount when putting the bolts in. It's been a while since I put mine in, but I'm pretty sure the sequence and torque amount is listed in the included instructions.

Other than that, it's pretty idiot-proof.

hopesNdreamz 03-13-2013 04:42 PM

okay great! texasscout was saying to get every bit of power out of it to use one off a rev up motor. so when im purchasing just say its for a 05 or 06 6MT?

Texasscout 03-13-2013 05:00 PM

Yes, save yourself some headache, go to Harbor Freight and buy a 1/4" torque wrench that measures in inch/pounds. It will keep you from snapping off a bolt.

hopesNdreamz 03-13-2013 05:38 PM

okay cool, thanks guys!! i seriously appreciate all the help with my questions
