Throttle Spacers

Are Throttle Spacers worth having? I have seen them for sale on several diesel sites.

Don't bother, if you really gotta have one, I got one in my garage. Took it off the day after I installed it.

It was supposed to atomize the intake air better, but all I noticed was a rougher idle.

With the turbine wheel spinning thousands or millions of times a minute... I'd venture to guess that the air is going to go whatever way the wheel wants it, regardless of what "obstical" is in its way!
