    I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with adding a throtle
    body spacer kit on their 4 cylinder Vtec?

    If you did, would you say that it added the claimed 3 or 4 mpg AND the
    few extra horsepower?

    Was/is there an issue with throttle cable lengths to consider during

    Don't you think if there were mpg/horsepower to gain that Honda would have
    installed it already?

    Spacers can make sense in multi-barrel carburetors, where you can gain 1%
    or so more bhp. In single-barrel EFI throttle bodies (such as yours) thay
    are mere snake oil.

    Don't waste your cash.
