I can't see how it would work on a 360. That intake manifold is big and the injectors are not even close to the throttle body. The only thing a spacer would do is increase the distance between the throttle body and the inside of the intake manifold. Now the air passes through the filter, through the TB, past the spacer, into the manifold and then gets sucked through the runners from there. Having the spacer there isn't going to change anything. The fuel doesn't come into the equation until after the air is out of the keg.


The only way it would improve power or mpg slightly is if it did something to fool the IAC sensor by somehow making the air in the manifold cooler (I have no idea how it would do this but it would explain the mpg increase that people are reporting). But that can be done for free just by moving the IAC to a different place.
