Dont waist your money on the spacer. What other mods do you have done on your car?

Get the delete plates... Skip the TB and spacer.

Delete plates are usually a worthwhile option, but unless some things have seriously changed with the S-197s lately, the throttle body and the spacer will both be a waste.

But if you really want to get either the TB or the TB spacer, just get the TB. It might be worth 3-6 hp...might. The spacer is better off used as a door stop. Or perhaps a nice paper weight...

The TB is good only if you can utilize the extra air (FI, or heads/cams if N/A). As mentioned, the spacer is worthless. There are some delete plates listed in the AFM classifieds.

Get some underdrive pullies,LCA`S.I would not do the throttle body spacer.I would wait on the Throttle body untill your motor is ready for that.I would put some stage 3 comp cams in first or do a stroker kit.That is just my 2 cents.

Mods are JBA LT's and H-pipe,cold air,93 octane custom tune, ud pullies.Since my exhaust is flowing better I thought that a tb/delete plate combo might make a slight intake improvement.320rwtorq 315HP.

You might pick up a little but really not worth the $350 +/- expenditure.
