Default throttle body spacer for 4.9l EFI motor

i got a question for anyone that can answer it....i want to buy a throttle body space for my 4.9l motor and was wondering if i swap the throttle body (1inch opening) for the larger throttle body off a 5.0l efi would it be a direct bolt on or would it cause problems with the computer?.

From my experience it will affect the ECU and you don't need or will pick up any gains with a TB spacer or larger TB ( on a stock vehicle). I went through all that on my old 89 LX Mustang.
