I've heard they add a little bit of torque, but it's not entirely noticeable. It's definitely not as good as getting a new throttle body though. I'd say just spend the extra $200 and get an aftermarket tb. Or spend the same amount (or less) at a junkyard and just get an H22 throttle body.

you might gain some torque because your making the intake makifold trck a little longer, use the money for a tank of gas or something
