    Throttle Body Spacer does not fit

    So I ordered one of these last week and attempted to install it today: 1.4L Ecotec Throttle Body Spacer by DDMWorks It fits fine, but it moves the throttle body too far down where it's hitting a coolant line/bracket that I believe goes to the heater core. My question is, am I dumb or is there something else I need to do? It is too tight to get the charge pipe back on without hitting the coolant bracket underneath.

    Well after viewing this it looks like I may have to adjust the clamp on it, but I still don't think it'll clear. https://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/129-...-4l-turbo.html

    I had to remove the lifting bracket to to install mine as the DDM spacer was originally made for the Sonic.. That said, the BNR spacer is made to fit the Cruze.

    Like I always say, "If it don't fit, force it! If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway!!!" LOL
