Default TB Spacers

Hey, I know there is lots of talk (good/bad) about TBS. My parts store has one in stock right now for the 5.9 and with my account they'll give it to me for a good price. So any opinions (good/bad/otherwise) will help me out in maybe purchasing this item. If you have a TBS installed I would greatly appreciate your thoughts.

I've asked about TBS and almost everyone told me to save my money. They don't do any harm, unless installed incorrectly, and they don't give you great benefits. That's just what I was told. I never had personal experience with TBS.

they're a good place to install NO2 jets... otherwise you'll get a better price by not buying one...

don't waste your money

Default Changed my mind about TB spacer

Hey all, I posted a couple days ago that my parts store had a TBS in stock for my truck and I was considering making a purchase. Based on the feedback here on the forum and my parts guy, I'll save my money for something else. My parts guy verified everything you all say about the TBS. He says they do nothing for a multiport injection system. Thanks for your input guys.
