K&N cold air + Throttle Body Spacer = good upgrade?

Hello,
this is my first thread.

I bought a K&N cold air intake and a Airaid Bottle Body Spacer as well from www.autoanything.com (awesome prices by the way) and was just wondering
if anyone could tell a difference in torque or just all around horsepower.

..and could anyone tell me if the K&N made anyone's exhaust's louder in any way?
I have a magnaflow and wondering what I should expect.

Thanks ya'll!

Also an intake isn't going to make an exhaust louder.

Just think for a sec. What is the spacer going to do that's going to make more power?

It does seem kind of silly,
but I've looked up a bunch of reviews of it and people with 2004 Taco's seem to notice a difference.

Are you just guessing? I'm just wondering, haha I don't have much money to spend so I want to buy useful things!

Your truck, your choice. You came in asking for opinions and your receiving them. Some folks learned first hand by buying these things, others may know someone who did and others are willing to believe the write-ups and reviews. Then there those who just understand how stuff does and doesn't work. As for the CAI, I bought the TRD intake, reviews advised little or more likely no improvements. I got just what the reviews said I would get, no real improvement, though I do like the sound when I get on it.
Again, it comes down to what YOU want, it's YOUR truck.
Edit
If these improvements that the TB claim are true, don't you think Toyota or other car manufactures would be installing the $35.00 part and charge outrageous prices for them?

Waste of money but toeach their own. You truck isn't going to make any real power gains unless you boost it.

well it comes Friday, I'll probably install it saturday.

I've read how it works and the whole concept seems kind of...dumb, but I've talked to multiple reps and read lots of reviews and that's what made me buy one.
I'll install it, and if I can't tell a difference then I'll return it!

Reps just want money and there a lot of derps out there. If anything the cleaner cut gasket will help. I bet you will say the spacer helped though.

They don't do anything. Well no they do whistle but that's it. I guess it is hard to understand logic sometimes.

Will these mods help you in the power department? That's a negative ghostrider...

All your bros and bro hoes sure will like the whistle they make though.

Have both of them installed, and I'm happy with them!
I'm not sure if the TB spacer does much...but it does make it sound like a supercharger haha.
It did make my magna-flow exhaust louder though...which is fine with me! Just under 2000 and around 2500 RPM's is when it's the loudest. It changed the tone a little bit though too.

Love the products, they sound way sweet! The mix between the exhaust, TB spacer, and the air intake sounds saweet!

Thanks guys!
