    I was looking at bolt on pefromance parts for my yota and i found throttle body spacers from AFE for my 3.4 V6 for 109.99 on ebay does anybody have any history with these and is it worth the money and how much of a perofamce gain is there

    general feelings on here are that they're useless for anything but noise.

    The only performance gain is financial for whoever sells it to you.

    If you are interested in about 10 HP gain and a little noise, do the deckplate mod for about $20. That's the only thing that will work short of a supercharger.

    I have a TB spacer on my 2nd Gen and other than noise I noticed no difference at all. Still worth the money for the noise as I like that sound.

    What they all said. Spacers are a giant waste of money.
