Default throttle body spacer

So has anyone tried these helical shaped throttle body slavers saw them at my local speed shop and was told they were good for close to 30 HP and 20 ft lbs of tourq. And for around 125 bucks that's a no brained also four d them on eBay and jets. So anyone use them? And any success?

With what you've done already, the next step is a pcm tuning or a different cam.

I think that in theory they work well but in all practical applications they do not succeed very well at the job they are supposed to do....

Its just like a carb spacer... giving more room for air/fuel mix if I am correct....

In a perfect world/situation I believe it would be beneficial....
