From what everyone has been saying on here its not worth it. From what I believe that only helped out on older style cars.

$45 is expensive for a paperweight, u can usually get those for a couple bucks.

The weight it adds negates any HP gain.
It might look good but to those that know, it does not.

depends on how you look at it: if performance is what you seek out of it, its either nonexistent or absolutely unoticeable. If you simply want to dress up a bit under the hood and add a sparkle of red then $45 MIGHT be justified. I have one in my ranger and I personally would never get another one again. i guess the red spacer in my truck isnt soo bad since its matches the body's color.......SAVE YOUR MONEY!
