Craigslist Buy!!!

Just got back from a Craigslist deal tonight. I found this just 2hrs ago and couldn't resist. $300 for the Accufab plenum and 75mm TB and 1/2" spacer.

Good buy! Does the spacer make a difference?? I've heard they are for carbed cars not efi? Also does the acufab produce that much of a power difference to justify the price?? I picked up a 78mm bbk tb/plenum combo today for $150! Great buy there too!

They say the spacer on a N/A motor is good for 2-4 more hp!.. I've got one on my car from Steeda and can say I didn't really notice a difference!.. But with it only being a 2-4 hp increase your not really going to feel any difference!.. Of course I figured 4 more hp for $30 ain't bad either!...

$150 for a 78mm BBK is not a great buy!.. That is almost a steal!.. Lol. Most places are still selling those for close to $300!...

I would do it all over again!.. It's minimal gains but for the price, well every little bit helps!..

That could be due to the fact that the truck line up has a different manifold than what is in our cars!..

Ok I have a question about the install of this?? Is there a gasket that goes between the plenum and intake manifold??? Is the one in there reusable?? I need to know before I remove my current setup. I asked advanced but they couldn't find one in their system for that spot...please let me know!!
