honeycomb

I think that once the mixture is through the venturi,past the throttle plate,and into the plenum of the intake manifold,it's got plenty of turbulence to help entrain any droplets that might be present,and the whole charge will be blasted to smitherines, once past the intake valve and into the combustion chamber.
I suspect that the honeycomb would only serve as a restriction and might actually interfere with some of the charge' ability to turn down the runners.
A normal spacer ( which is wide open ) adds length to the plenum,which aids in "turning" the charge along a larger radius and can help prevent "wet out" on the floor of the plenum,something the matrix of the honeycomb might aggravate.
I'd shy away from the device.
