They help but there's a lot more you can do for that minimal gain you'd get AFTER a tune, otherwise, they're pretty useless on an H22 but certainly don't hurt anything, just don't really help though.

People will buy anything whether there's a need for it or not. Just look at the pet rock.

Re: Anyone tried throttle spacers?

all that i have seen is maybe 3-4 whp... tops... but they do sound good if you want like a turbo imitator sound... but i did see a dyno on a turbo lude that put a spacer on and he got 21whp extra....
