Throttle Body Spacers and cold air intakes

I just picked up a 07 Tacoma 4dr longbox. Not being able to leave stuff alone I want to add some initial accessories. Any input on throttle body spacers and/or cold air intakes. Worth the money or not????

cold air intake.....yes.....throttle body spacer......NO!!
an intake will help with mileage, and make an exhaust a bit louder, but all a spacer does is whistle!! save your hard earned green for something worthwhile!!

by the way.....welcome to tw!!

dependent on water crossings, I'd go with the URD intake and MAF calibrator. I love my setup.

Alot of info

Stayed up late until I found info onTrue Flow IXD.

Ordered one today, saved about $100 fromcustimized trucks. Won't last long according to the manufacturer. Prices will be bumped to a minimum of 10% of suggested retail of $389.

These forums are great but there is a ton of info.
