Frequently Asked Questions
What is “The Gadgetman Groove”?
The Gadgetman Groove is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a groove that is machined into your throttle body just downstream of the throttle plate. What it DOES is what makes it special! (Click HERE to watch a video on what it is and what it does. A new window will open.)
What will you change on my engine?
We simply change the shape of the throttle body. There are no parts, no chemiclas, no tuning or “tweaking”. We replace your throttle body and install a single vacuum cap. That’s it!
How much can I expect to get from this modification?
Over 80% of our customers report a minimum increase of 20% in MPG’s. Some get vastly more (up to 600% has been reported), and some, in all honesty, get nothing. But there is nothing better on the market – at ANY price – at improving combustion efficiency. In this, The Gadgetman Groove stands alone.
How long will this last?
The modification is permanent. And for the first few weeks, the longer your engine runs the better your system likes it!
Are there any negative effects of getting Grooved?
In certain rare cases (maybe one in 200 mods) the system reaches maximum efficiency and eliminates all fuel particles (HydroCarbons or HC) from your exhaust stream. As most engine management systems require a certain amount of waste to be processed by the catalytic converter, these systems have been known to throw a code for “catalytic converter below efficiency”. In these cases, the modification can be redone to diminish its effects on combustion.
How much does it cost to get my engine “Groovy”?
The cost to have your throttle body modified is $498 for most cars. If it’s a dual-throat throttle or a two- or four-barrel carburetor, the cost runs up to $600. These prices include any core charges that may be required for processing your order.
