well its only 1/8" difference. I don't know if that would make any difference in the gains between the 3/8" or 1/2", but youll see something going from stock.

Together? What do you mean? The two spacers go in different areas of the car, not really doubling the effect.

Yeah theres the one for the intake manifold, and one for the throttle body. i don't know which gives you more gains but thers probably not a big difference between the two of them. Could someone with spacers give some :help: ?

The throttle Body one gave me a better throttle response but the intake spacer definately cooled down the upper intake

I have the 1\2 and it keeps the upper intake NICE and cool. I couldn't tell you if the spacer made a difference though because I did that at the same time I installed the ported intakes, so I have no idea how much is intakes and how much is spacer. I noticed a pretty substancial gain though. Damn.

Thread from the dead!

No, the throttlebody spacer was dynoed to have no measurable gains on our vehicles.

Furthermore, Flex no longer makes spacers.
