Default cheaper throttle body

I dont have much money to throw around, so i'm lookin for cheaper ways to gain performance. And i found these 2 TB's on ebay. If they wouldnt work let me know why so i'll know what to look for, for now on.

Spacers are a waste......if you can...look into Fastman throttle bodies...he can modify your stock one for under 200 bucks.

Well, neither are throttle bodies, they're spacers... and with our keg-style intakes you get ZERO gains from a spacer. The spacer was designed to improve the air/fuel mixture in carbeurated or non-injected engines. So, unless you're planning on running a wet nitrous system you're wasting your money unless you just want the high-pitched whine similar to a supercharger.

IMHO, save your money and get something that gives you some real gains.

If you are looking for performance on a budget I think you have the wrong truck. j/k.
If you haven't already done them get a Magnaflow Y pipe to replace the factory one. They are like $30 plus whatever a shop charges to install it.
You can also just get a replacement muffler instead of an entire exhaust system.
You can also get a cold air kit cheap on ebay.
