Not worth the money, you won't notice anything. Just leave it as it is.

If you have a 2.5L you WILL feel an improvement and especially when used with a 4.0L TB. If you want make it even better grind out the helix for better air flow.

Save the money and use it to get a bored throttle body. That should help some.

I made one awhile back, I did notice a little bit of increase at low end, but where I noticed it more was at the gas pump. I still have mine if your looking to buy a custom one.

Grind out the useless helix and the manifold opening to the same size. You will then notice a difference in the seat and the wallet. My MPG went from 13 to 17 but I also port matched the intake to the head with a dremel.
