Default Throttle Body Spacers

Hey I was wondering if you any of you have a throttle body spacers in your trucks. I was looking into getting one for mine and was seeing if there were any real benefits to them.

Yep what they ^ said.

To use a slightly modified quote from Vegas Vacation:

"Why don't you give me half the money you were going to spend, then we'll go out back, I'll kick you in the nuts and we'll call it a day!"

There is a place for throttle body spacers and cold air intakes but not on a stock engine. You would have to a lot of modifications before either of those would be worth while.

Throttle body spacer=anodized aluminum paperweight. Or you could buy two of them and stack them to make a really nice desktop pencil holder.
Save your money.
