throttle spacers are basically useless on fuel injected engines

Your diesel doesn't have a throttle, so no it wouldn't help.

I must have had good luck I guess. I have had an Airaid intake on my truck first for a long time. And just recently added a throttle body spacer from Airaid. I have noticed a pretty substantial difference in getting off the line and pulling. But that's all I have really noticed. Besides the cool whistle sound.
