I've got the same set up that you've got. I've got the 5.7L HEMI in a quad cab '08. I installed the spacer, though I haven't seen where it did much, if anything.

As far as actually getting down to it, it wasn't too tough. It comes with longer mounting screws for the TB, simply unscrew the old ones, lift up the TB, insert the spacer and replace with the supplied screws. There weren't any gaskets and such (that I remember) to contend with, so it was pretty straight forward.

The only issue that I had was taking apart the inner fender lining, to remove the old air box. I got it done eventually, but I think that part took longer to do than the rest of the job combined.

good luck
