Default Throttle body spacer?

Need your feed back. Looking to purchase the 'Poweraid Throttle Body Spacer'. Seems like a good mod, and any help in performance is helpful. Has anyone installed this? Thanks for your help!

Don't spend your money on it. It's a waste of money and the time to install it. It does nothing, and even the company is no longer claiming gains from it's use.

On a carbureted engine it might help, but not with fuel injection.

Don't do it. Try a search on this or any other PT forum and you'll see that's it's money wasted.

Oh I don't know? It whistles real kool when you hammer it! Other than that it's a waste of time and $. Too bad I was not on any forums when I got suckered!
