Default throttle body spacer

Should I get a throttle body spacer for a 4.3L vortech engine? I already have a flowmaster muffler installed sounds really good.

It's a good paperweight if your looking for one of those! You won't see any gains from it tho sadly.

Reason being is a spacer is supposed to mix the gas and air. Well you have fuel injection and the injectors are after the spacer making it useless
