Absolutely not. But be prepared for some other answers calling it a paper weight, and other stuff. This is a mod that if you get it and tell someone you have it and it's installed will get you clowned on.

So, you did the right thing by just asking if it's worth it and stating nothing else, hehe.

Turn in your man card for even THINKING about buying a spacer.

The claims are all hype and totally false. But they make nice Chritmas tree ornaments except people will get drunk and laugh at you. However, you can grab it off the tree and bean them with it. That's about all the joy...

no

save your money. and if you MUST do something, use that money for stripes, you'll see bigger hp gains.

Its been proven that the power they gain does not equal out the weight they add.

Yea...

That's one of the complaints I have with the vendors. They sell these things knowing that it's no more useful than a turd.

If you drill a hole and tap it for an H2O/meth injection nozzle to go on the correct side of the throttle body, it's worth it.

What about if you tap it and do a wet n2o system?

I suppose that works too. Wasn't thinking about n2o. I've seen it done to TB spacers for h2o/meth on other applications, that's what made me think of it.
