I used vasoline on the inside of the tubes to make everything slip together easier..

I was thinking the same thing...what does this look like, is it necessary?
no - not necessary. It's a ricer thing. "Spin your air so you atomize fuel more efficiently" As if an inch thick piece of aluminum with some grooves could influence the air flow into throttle body. Especially considering how much the air is redirected after that point.

It's about as effective at increasing air flow as the Miller Light vortex bottle is at getting beer into your gullet faster.

hey dyno sheets don't lie... throttle body spacers work well with cai systems, not a huge difference but it is a difference.

I have often wondered about the TB spacer. Did it cause any instalation issues for the CAI? I know with the intake I made it might push it too forward or too close to the radiator.
