that phenolic is some hard stuff!

Dang, this phenolic is a pain to cut! And of course I have a cheap cordless drill. Glad I got a decent jig saw at least, the holes are going to be a pain to cut out I imagine! I should have a couple of them cut out by Thanksgiving break. Can put it in then while classes are out

OK are you wearing a mask when you cut Phenolic!!! The resin in Phenolic is extremely dangerous and Cancer causing. Professionals who work with it use respirators and a well ventilated area. It is dangerous to work with in a house the dust particles get in the A/C ducts and spread around the house. The dust gets into the eye ducts and can spread thruout the blood system. Only using a surgical mask is insufficient you need to protect the eyes and the people around you.

I got a dual filter dust mask at Lowes and I do all of the cutting out in the back yard Those cheap paper masks fog up my glasses anyway. Now I have a nice dust mask for porting stuff as well! yay me!

Haven't even noticed any effects from it, I make sure to dust myself off really well before going back inside.

Yeah, got it all cut out and no G10 inhaled. Just gotta do some dremel work to smooth out some edges and it will be ready to be installed!

A question: Do I need to get new bolts? It's a 1/2" spacer

Thanx

From what I understand, yes, you do need longer bolts if you're puting anything over 3/8 of a spacer on. I dont know the measurements of it though. you could always take one off, and run to the hardware store

Just be sure to remember to mark everything very well when you dis-connect everything.

Let me know how you like it.

By the way... you know there is an installation How to for this mod right? .

Yup, I've seen the installation and will probably have it up on the computer while I do the work

I'll have the marker and the masking tape out for this work for sure!

Yeah, I wish this site had the procedures when I instaled mine

AS it turns out, after I installed it and made sure everything, went through a lot of BS..., some bozo makes a how to for it that would have saved me a lot of time

He was supposed to have the spacers during his engine rebuild. But, the powers that be, couldnt get the spacers to him in time.

So no, he doesnt have the spacers on his car

I am making my spacer soon... I have everything I need cept for the mask. I was wondering what kinda torque wrench I need also. I saw one at a autoparts store for $20, but it was 120-950 in. pound. I was wondering if this would work? Also, I know to tighten the throttle body to 81 in. lb, but what about the intake bolts? Is it the same?

Also, you who have put in the intake spacer, have you really noticed any difference in power?? I really hope I do. I also hope I dont screw up on anything!! That would really suck if I mess my car up!! Ohh well though, I will just have to take my chances.

Thanks and later

Get a TQ wrench that will do you some good down the road. My TQ Wrench cost me like 80 bucks. It goes from 15-140 ft/lbs or something. You can get a in/lb wrench, jsut remember, if you need a ft/lb conversion, it's a 12x multiplier.

I love my spacer. When I installed it and tested it for the first time, I was actually able to chirp third gear . It's worth it in my book.

If you're not aware, I made a step by step "How-To" on installing spacers... check it out

Okay sounds good. So you are saying that since the bolts on the intake need to be tightend to 81 in/lb, and you have a ft/lb wrench, then you would tighten it to 6.75 ft/lb??? I got that by deviding 12 into 81. Is this the correct method?

Thats might be a bit confusing so I am probably going to get a in/lb wrench.

Thats awesome that it gave you noticable gains!! I hope mine do the same!
