That's a normal throttle body spacer. I had one in my ol' 98 chevrolet, I kinda liked the squeal it made, almost sounded like a supercharger. Not much performance gained from it.

That is very common with throttle body spacers. I hate to say it, but you also spent $100 for a paperweight. The only reason you need a tb spacer on our keg style intake is if you decide to add a nitrous kit. Aside from that, there is no gains from a spacer on our engines.
