    They straighten the air flow after the TB and helps the higher rpm range. They do the same thing for carburetors too.

    Waste of money.. Everything claims HP gains but rarely ever actually produce any.. Remember the gain could easily be .00001 hp crank and some manufacturers will claim a hp gain.. Such as K&N filters.. After many MAF issues from filter oil, and dyno tests show little to no real gains over a cheap paper filter.. That's why some companies use the phrase, "Up to an xx hp gain ." Covers thier bases as they know it may do nothing.. Many cheapo companies use ricer dumbness to sell their products these days..

    interesting, i thought it offered one cool thing which was a nitrous port on the side so you dont have to drill a hole on the side, but i guess i would rather get a cheaper nitrous plate for that lol

    I was considering a spacer, but I think it's worthless.
