Thoughts on Throttle Body Spacers?

So on Bavauto they have an AFE throttle body spacer, I know the HP/TQ gains are minimal but they claim it improves throttle response which is what I found interesting. I'm doing a lot of work to my car this weekend( 7" FMIC, DP, Injen intake & tune) so I'm looking to get the most out it. Any thoughts? anyone use them>?

These didn't even work before direct injection and turbocharging. I think the last time they did anything even remotely logical was throttle body injection, and even that is up for debate.

Yeah, but idk I'm on the fence about buying bc its almost 300 bucks. I want some feedback before buying it. One question, hows the alpina B3 flash? Feels natural on the tranni? and how much HP/TQ are you pushing right now?

Feels great, no downside other than the lame regular shifts under 2k RPM if driving on D. But in sport mode or manual mode it's amazing. On RWD it adds a bit to torque, on xdrive it makes no difference to torque but for both platforms it's equally as amazing. The rev matching downshifts are my favorite part

It's definitely a must have bud, get it! Also idk how much I'm pushing but from external input I'd say high 300s/400hp and 440-450 torque

It's completely useless. $300 can get you much better products. Plus, the N55 doesn't even use the throttle; it's always wide open when you run the car.

I have one on my Subaru. The only reason it is still on there is because I am to lazy to rip it off. Total waste of money and mine was no where near $300.
