    So after tooling my ride this weekend , my final thoughts , thus far anyways, is that the TBI spacer and pod spacer are deff worth it.
    OD shifting , highway passing and throtttle response from a stop have dramatically improved!

    it raises the injector pods 1/4" up and allows more air to mix with the fuel before it enters the manifold.
