I'm looking at buying an intake for my '03 Ram, would a throttle body spacer be a good add on as well?

Throttle body spacers are the biggest waste of money.

They accomplish nothing.

If you want to upgrade something useful, upgrade the actual throttle body itself.

I have seen no credible data showing any improvement in engine performance and efficiency when using a TBS.

As Aggie said, if you go with an intake and exhaust, upgrading your throttle body would be a more effective mod.
