Does nothing. Dont waste money or time with it. Use that $99 for a intake or U/D pulley kit.

it can make more power but only due to removing the slack in the throttle cable, there are other ways to adjust the cable

I have always heard that they dont work. I am not sure where people get their info but I would probably spend it on something else.

Gimmick taking old technology that does not apply to modern workings. They's just trying to make a buck selling crap.

if you want you can zip tie your throttle cable by the pedal to remove the slack, that'll get you all the benefits of a spacer for no costs
