Default 2002 tahoe

Hey guys I just found this forum and it looks like it has a lot of useful info! I also just bought my hoe yesterday. Anyways my question is will a throttle body spacer from a 2000 sierra 4.8l fit on my 2002 tahoe 5.3?
Thanks,
Josh

Welcome

Learn one thing right away:

TB spacers are JUNK. There have been tests upon tests of these things, even on dynos. No gains at all. Some even reduce power. I'm amazed that vendors still carry them, let alone sell them. But hey, it's your truck, do what you want man.

Again, welcome aboard. This is a very good community, you'll learn alot here.

Yeah, we've got a good group here. It was slow going when the forum first started up, but it's really come a LONG way since I first joined. I didn't really become active until about a month ago becasue this place was a ghost town when I registered...then I dropped back in to see what was new, and it was a night and day difference! We have a very well rounded community here now, it was amazing to see all of the activity compared to before.

Feel free to poke around and ask whatever questions you want, but alot of the same topics get discussed frequently - so use that search function at the top since there is alot of good info buried here in old threads.

Again, welcome. Lets see some pics of your 'hoe! :thumbsup:

Here ya go! Sorry but its the only pick i have. I got the pick from where i found it at on the internet.


Its got a yellow top, air raid, 4.56's with 35" nitto's, hypertech, flowmaster and a nice stereo. I think I am going to get some lt headers next. I know they help with the bottom end but do they effect the gas milage any? Is that a good next upgrade performace wise?

Dynatechs or stainless works will make tons of power with a good tune. I'd look into a mild cam at the same time, cam swaps are simple on these trucks and will really open it up with those 4.56s.
