Default Throttle body spacer

I have a bone stock 2003 ram 1500 with the 5.7 Hemi. I am putting a CAI on in the near future and had hear of some guys also adding a throttle body spacer. The truck has plenty of power as you all know, but more power never hurt, and a little better MPG wouldn't either.
Has anyone done a throttle body spacer and what were you seeing for results. I am wanting to do a few things to up the power and mpg but nothing too extravagant. Like I said I'm planning a CAI soon and exhaust down the road.

Save your $$$$$$$ unless you need it for spray or CAI fitment. No performance gains from the TBS itself.

Thanks guys, I know spacer can make a hell of a difference on carbs but I didn't know about FI, it seemed too good to be true
