Default throttle spacer?

Is anybody running a throttle spacer? What are results?

The result is that they are a joke and do nothing. Please don't waste your money.

That's a big waste of money right there. I tried it a few years ago and got nothing out of it at all. Now a carb spacer is a different story. I'd stay away from the throttle body spacers because it's a waste of money.

That whistling sound is the mating call of the unicorn operating the dyno.

Yep. It's almost as funny as suggesting a hunk of metal on your throttle body added 16hp.
