I personally haven't had one. But I was ganna buy one, untill some guys on here told me that all they do is whistle and there not worth the money. So I decided to just save up for some headers. Headers will give me more power anyways.

save your money for something worthwhile. all tb spacers do is whistle......no gains with them. all except for a light wallet.

some 4 cyl dont sound all that great with headers....not exactly sure how the 4 cyl tacomas sound though.

if you like the way your truck sounds......keep it as is. headers will make it louder.....not necessarily bad though......and tb spacers will make it have a high pitch whistle.

not really....unless you could find a turbo system. the header is gonna be your best bet, as far as cheapest route goes. you may even try to find underdrive pulleys....not sure if they make any for your truck though.

General consensus is that throttle body spacers for these vehicles is a waste of money.
