    Junk, they are a waste of money that doesnt do anything on your style and year of motor.. You need to have a 1988-1995 in order for it to do anything.

    Well, there are a ton of threads reguarding TB spacers all over the forum here.. All of them end with the TB spacer doing no good or actually hurting performance. I am sure there will be more people chimming in as well..

    I would have to agree I installed one two of my trucks and they pretty much did nothing but make a whistle sound. There was no performance gain at all.

    Some people like the noise you get from installing one. They might make a little difference if you did a lot of modifications to your engine but basically they are a way for aftermarket vendors to make money. Most people don't even recommend a bigger throttle body for the newer engines let alone the spacer. A lot of people/companies want over $100 for one, so if you can pick one up for under $50 then give it a try, got mine for $40 on eBay.
