Throttle Body Spacer?

Is there enough improvement with an automatic, fuel injected car to drop a C-Note on it? I was looking at Air Raid, there seem to be good reviews, but most are on there website with similar wording in them.

I think it depends, do a independant search on them. You`ll find guys who hated them, and guys who liked them. then draw your own conclusion. the types of spacers that have the swirl vanes in them I don`t think do any good except for bottom end, they sure don`t help top end any.

I doubt they do anything noticable, think about it if you could make more power by putting a simple spacer there they would have made it like that at the factory.
