Intake spacers? Jewel, or Junk?
« on: March 15, 2014, 09:33:22 am »
I've read a lot of pro & con, which also varies a lot from engine to engine.

Anyone know whether they work in our MAGNUM RC's ('92 & '93), and whether they produce results, or wishful thinking?


My local Autozone actually HAS one in stock for around $50 - wasn't sure if that would be a fitty well spent is all...
Restoring/building a War Wagon - good advice ALWAYS welcome!

from what i have ready they are junk on MPFI engines. they are mainly for TBI and carbed engines unless for some reason you need to lift your TB.

The spacers were an old drag racer trick to keep your carb a bit cooler by separating your carb from the hot intake. helped with hot starts and kept the fuel just a bit cooler. Some of the old fellers used plywood lol then it went to plastic and alum.  I can see it working for carbs to keep the heat from transfering to the bowls but dont see how it can help with the MPFI or TB's
