I was under the impression that this part was not available for the LFX engine. If it is, please post a link to it.

I was under the impression throttle body spacers were a complete waste of money.

To some degree any mod is a waste of money. Your car runs fine right out the box. If you want to improve on that well...

True but atleast other mods have a purpose and do something like add more power and what not. Noone knows what a throttle body spacer does.

A throttle body spacer alowss the flapper in the throttle body to open parallel to air flow. on earlier 2010-2011 the angle of the tube to TB prevented the flapper from positioning fully. The spacer allows more air flow and in thery will increase HP developed,

Really? Because aren't throttle body spacers installed downstream of where you are talking about? Between the throttle body and the intake plenum?

Link to a picture so we can see what you're referring to, please.
