No but it you loose any drivability the car has learned. Let it sit at idle for a few mins then take it for a good drive afterward so it can relearn how you drive.

All this work to go backwards with a spacer..................LOL.

From the website.............

'OBX Power Flow throttle body spacers are designed to increase mid-range torque, horsepower and improve fuel consumption. Each spacer utilizes an aggressive angle bore design to create a vortex of the incoming air for better fuel atomization and combustion within each cylinder. The design is a straight bolt on affair without needing any replacement parts or future maintenance.'

More fun than a barrel of monkeys...........hey, I got some swampland for sale.................

Is there any of the screw stick up from the intake manifold? If so, just throw a set of visegrips on the broken screw and screw it loose out of there. IIRC there is no metal insert in the intake for the screws to screw into so its not going to see much resistance., How in the hell did you do this?
