Econoaid for 4.7 L?

I'm curious to see if anybody else here has bought and used any of the TBS (Throttle Body Spacers) from the company called Econoaid? After waiting for 4+ days for a response from the question left for Airaid I started doing another search on my own to find a TBS that applied to a 2008-2010 4.7 L. application. I finally found this, for an almost unreal price and wanted to get input from anyone reading this if you've dealt with this company and/or used any of their products. Please rsvp to me if you have.

Throttle body spacers are a waste of time and money. If you happen to have a souped up engine, it may pay a minor dividend. Otherwise, just go spend the money on an extra tank of gas.

P.S., I just looked at the website and it's not even a throttle body spacer like you'd see on a hot rod (which retail for about $100) - it just looks like one of those fuel saving scams trying to take more money from you than the gas pump already is.

Bobula my first instinct was to think what you just said, the price is just too low compared to TBS that I've used in the past (Mustang 5.0 L & Taurus SHO). Its even 1/3 the price of buying another Tornado (which I have in the K&N on my 4.0 L Cherokee). I have no doubt at all that TBS and Tornado technology work to gain a bit of horsepower and torque (I never felt I got any of the mileage gains that any of them claim). I guess I'll probably just wait until the Airaid people get back to me on if they are offering the TBS they make for the '08 and up 4.7 L application. Thanks for the input!
