Throttle Body spacers

Are these throttle body spacers for the 460s all they are cracked up to be as far as mileage and power gains?

All they are good for is to lighten your pocket!!

Making the air have to travel 1/2 inch further before it mixes with fuel will do nothing at all.

Most throttle body spacers are best used as paperweights, door stops, or for leveling coffee tables or couches. Too large/heavy to make effective Christmas ornaments though.
