Default Throttle body spacers. Are they worth it?

I have been looking at this throttle body spacer for a while now.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Some people I know that have them say they are good, some say they suck and don't do anything. Does anyone have one and what is your take on them? Is it worth buying even thought I have a volant cold air intake?

Tried one on my mustang. Before & after dyno pulls netted 0 gains. So on a 4.6 3valve nope, waste of money.
