HELP !Airaid Throttle body spacer + Powerwire Problems!!!

hello everyone,

i have a 05 3.7 Laredo, i installed the airaid throttle body spacer but the cruise and throttle cables need some adjustments so that the throttle can close and open normally. does anyone know how to do these adjustments?? ( Note i installed the bracket as instructed but still need about 1 inch for the throttle to close completely). I hope anyone could help.

i bought too the airram powerwire, but i didnt know where to install it, i recognized that at one end the air intake tube but the second end was not known to me. Can anyone help and tell me where to install both ends of the powerwire?

thanks a lot

Remove the throttle body spacer and your problem is solved. It doesn't do anything for your engine.

As for the powerwire I have no idea...someone with one will have to post up.

unplug the iat wire....one end plugs into the iat sensor on the intake tube and the other end into the iat wire

Re: HELP !Airaid Throttle body spacer + Powerwire Problems!!!

iat = Intake air temperature

it's the sensor attached to your intake tube that you found.

I believe what Scott is saying is to unplug the electrical connection going to the sensor and place the powerwire inbetween the wire and the sensor.

right now you have iat wire, iat sensor.
in the end you will have iat wire, powerwire, iat sensor.

Agreed. Both are snakeoil products.
