Airaid throttle body spacers feature a unique spiral bore that agitates the incoming air to promote better atomization of the fuel molecules, resulting in a more complete burn in the combustion chamber. These kits include a billet aluminum spiral bore spacer, throttle cable bracket relocation plate, and all the hardware needed to install the kit. These kits work great when used in conjunction with our high-flow intake tube and filter kit. Spacers and adapters are hard anodized black for long lasting good looks and durability.

Part Number 510-624, Poweraid Spacer For 2007-2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser, 2005-2013 Toyota Tacoma 2005-2009 Toyota 4Runner 4.0L V-6
Tools Required For Installation:
1. Disconnect Negative battery cable. Using a 10mm socket, remove the two nuts that secure the factory beauty cover to the engine. Remove the beauty cover and save it for reinstallation later.
2. Using a 4mm socket, remove the two studs that secure the beauty cover to the engine. Squeeze the tab on the Mass Air Flow sensor wiring connector and disconnect it from the Mass Air Flow sensor. Using a 10mm socket, remove two bolts that secure the resonator/airbox to the engine.
3. Using a 10mm socket, loosen two hose clamps, one at the throttle body, and one where the fresh air tube connects to the resonator/airbox. Disconnect the crankcase breather hose on the front of the resonator/airbox, and the small vacuum line on the back (not shown). Using a flat blade screwdriver, pry two wiring harness anchors from the resonator/airbox
4. Remove the complete resonator/airbox assembly from the vehicle.
5. Using a 10mm socket, remove the 4 bolts that hold the throttle body to the in-take manifold.
6. Slide the Poweraid Spacer (#1) and gasket (#2) between the intake manifold and the throttle body. Make sure the “Flow” arrow on the spacer is pointing to-wards the intake manifold, and the gasket is next to the throttle body. Install the 4 supplied 6mm x 75mm bolts (#3) and flat washers (#4) thru the throttle body, gasket, spacer, into the intake manifold and tighten evenly to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications.
7. Install one 1” extension plate (#9) using a 6mm x 20mm bolt (#5) and flat washer (#4) on the valve cover with the long end of the spacer facing the right fender. Repeat this procedure on the top of the intake manifold at the location shown above.
8. Reinstall the resonator/airbox assembly in the reverse order that you removed it using the factory bolts. Make sure to reconnect all breather and vacuum hoses, and the Mass Air sensor electrical connector. Install one 1” extension plate (#9) using the 5/16” thick round spacer (#10) and 6mm x 25mm bolt (#6), with flat washer (#4) in the threaded hole where the stud was removed on the resonator/airbox, with the extension plate facing the throttle body as shown.
9. Install the 3/4” long round spacer (#11) on top of the threaded hole where the stud was removed on the intake manifold as shown and proceed to the next step.
10. Gently reinstall the beauty cover on the engine and use one 6mm x 12mm bolt (#8) with flat washer (#4) on the passenger side, and one 6mm x 40mm bolt (#7) with flat washer (#4) on the driver’s side.
11. Double check your work! Make sure there is no foreign material in the intake path. Make sure all clamps, hoses, bolts, and screws are tight. 12. Reconnect the negative battery cable!
NOTE: Included with your Poweraid Spacer is a sticker with a California Air Resources Board (C.A.R.B.) Executive Order (EO) number. This sticker must be placed in plain view inside of the engine compartment. Failure to do so may prevent you from passing a smog inspection.
