Steeda Spacer Big Throttle Body

So i dont know if anyone's dealt with this or not yet so if not ill just continue the post to help others out in the future once i find it out. But heres the question, ive got the bigger throttle body from the 2.3l mustang on my 2015 Focus Se and purchased the Steeda Throttle Body Spacer. I remember the big tb required longer bolts than what came stock so im assuming the bolts with the spacer will be too short for the big tb. Anyone know the specific bolt length and thread size for this application?

Its not a debate when its a known fact that it will do nothing.

If you are that adamant on throwing money away why don't you just get the spacer for the mustang?

Take a bolt from the bigger throttle body, add the depth of the spacer to that bolts measurement and that should be a good gauge.

2 different custom Intake manifolds didnt add 6hp and 11tq

There is 100% NO WAY you will see 1/5 those gains from a TB spacer , there a joke like UDP

I hate seeing people throw good money away on crap that makes no performance when there are things out there that can help there performance

^^ UDP's free up hp/torque they don't add, and i've had good results with them as long as they are significantly lighter them oem crank pulley. The intake manifolds I think is an issue with SCT, the tuning has an issue with the VVT and both manifolds dropped off at same RPM, too much of a coincidence I think..more digging needs to be done.

How can they free up HP and TQ yet not add any HP and TQ , if it frees it up and it doesnt add it to the Fly wheel / tires then where does it go ?

How is it a issue with the SCT Software that the intakes didnt work ?

There is NO Tuning issues with the VCT , the cams were moved around a to try to help and on top of that the cams shouldnt need to of been moved , do people that change from the stock intake on the 04-11 Duratecs to a Cosi have to move there cams to get the intake to show gains , nope they show gains right out of the box even with out a tune done , The VCT is something I have been working with for years , it started with the Contour Zetec then went to the SVT Focus now the MK3 , its there in the software and it works , every tune I send out has the cams changed in it

The intakes should of shown gains right out of the box then tweek the engines for best performance , your getting some very bad information on how things work and what is and isnt working in the SCT

The tuning on both of those manifolds were set to make peak torque far beyond the current rev limit. They were not properly designed at all. If you want a manifold that makes more power then it has to be properly designed to the motor, and not just made to fit.
The only problems I have ever seen with SCT is that they have not let us raise the rpm of shifts or let us shift the DCT ourselves.
