Default tb spacer

so i ordered a tb spacer, and was wondering if it would be worth the trouble to go through and do the tb mod with it; referring to the removal of the "silencers" on the outside of the bore of the throttle body, along with smoothing out all the edges around the bore

Well...they have been proven to not really do anything on the magnum engines...but many people still say they do, and, depending, they actually may.

but, I have a red anodized air raid one in the for sale section for $30 shipped!
