Default Throttle Body Spacer???

Does anyone know anything about adding an aftermarket throttle body spacer? Useless? Beneficial? If so, how? Any info would be great, thanks!

Useless on port injection. Absolutely no benefit.

X2.
On carbureted or throttle-body injection engines a spacer might help the fuel better mix with incoming air, but no advantage on a port-injected engine.

Okay thanks, I saw some for sale and wondered if anyone had researched or tried one, specifically on a turbo PT. Sounds like I will avoid like snake oil, haha!
