Default Throttle body spacer

I have noticed some internet sites bundling cold air intakes and throttle body spacers together. I am interested in the intake and was just wondering the pro's and con's for the throttle body spacer. Thanks.

So they are just a waste of money? You didn't notice anything from it?

As Jhouse said a throttle body spacer is completely useless on a fuel injected truck unless you're using it to put a nitrous injector in. Other than that it won't do anything for you. A ported throttle body would be a much better investment if you're looking for more airflow and power.

The ported tb is advertised for 12-24 hp. It did give me better throttle response but i also have the other major bolt ons too
