I do not think it will help one single bit except to lighten wallet some. Your Terminator is just an air valve and air flows pretty good. Besides that the restriction in your intake system is the heads, valves and ports.

-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

I put on a 2" Super sucker because I needed to add in lean out valve fitting and the intake didn't have much of a carburetor pad to drill into. If I eventually change intakes, the new one should have enough of a pad to drill and tap for the fitting I can get rid of the spacer and gain some hood clearance.

Why didn't you just get a 1" open phenolic spacer?

4150 base carb without a big PCV port on the rear?

The theory of the super sucker is to improve vacuum signal at the carb booster, and improve flow into the plenum.

I too have back to back the super sucker, open, 4 hole and never seen any improvement on the time slip from any spacer on any engine I’ve run with HP that varied from 500 to 1100! Never seen .01 in ET or .1 MPH, on gas and with both 4150 and 4500 carbs.

Some of those blended 4 hole spacers almost look like they are extensions of the carb venturis rather than spacers.
