    Do those throttle body spacers work? Or are they just a waste of money?

    Good question. I've seen a couple mag. articles that tested them and found some power, and other articles basically said "We didn't really see much of a power increase, but go ahead and spend your money anyway". I guess if you already have the TBI off, it's not too hard to throw one on.

    Just recently saw one made by Iceman that supposedly has some kind of corkscrew effect on the air... they claim it makes more power than the "regular" spacers. Who knows...

    I bought one about a month ago, I think it helps a little at higher RPM's, but nothing big. It makes a cool turbo type sound though :)

    I plan to get one sometime. I also plan on getting a injector spacer too. What that does is raises the injectors a little to let more air in. Don't know if they are worth it but I figure I will give it a try.
