Vap intake spacer

Does anyone have this on their single port mustang? Iv been thinking about getting it for my 97 but am up in the air about it. Is it worth doing. Thanks in advanced

Good thinking!! On a stock 97 you'd go from 215 tq to 215.5 tq! That's if you're lucky.

If that's your car in the dyno it looks like a 94-98. Is that correct? If those are your only mods, i would think you'll see about 125-135ish rwhp. The plugs, coil and spark plugs will not really help with your hp. the distributeless ignition from the factory is more than adaquate.

Re: Vap intake spacer

I have it, it's a great freakin idea. I love the power it gives. I got my new dyno tunes today and with the new exhaust and the lower intake spacer, I got 10HP increase(over the last dyno), which I am big time F'n happy about. That's a lot of work to get that higha number. Good day today. I'm happy as hell! Pay Off Brother!! That's a **** load a work for the measly 10 HP, but I got it and it aint easy to gain, that's for Fu**ing sure. Good times today! I'm happy as hell. good day to crack one open and yell "Hell Yeah!!

A stroker kit will always get you little horsepower. The main gain is all in the torque as you van see in my Sig I have 265ish rwtq. That's about a 45 rwtq gain over my previous dyno.

Re: Vap intake spacer

I wish I had the garage, the time, and especially the money for a Stroker. When the single port dies, I'll go with something exciting & probably with eight cylinders.
