It will lighten your wallet but not enough to help your acceleration. Worthless.

They are good for down draft intakes with short plenums/manifolds underneath. For a long plenum side draft intake like ours, they have no effect.

I have been reading rwenzig's comments for quite some time now. For him to put something down so ruthlessly is almost a shock. But it should be an indication that throttle body spacers are worthless.
