    I haven't used one, but I've heard others say they give plenty of low-end torque. Might be worth it if you find a decently cheap one...

    A spacer should raise the torque curve up in the RPM range and give a slight increase in HP. Sorta like a high rise intake. Not sure if they work though but that is the theory behind them. They are quite pricey, about $75.
