I thought they're a good idea, but at my last mod day, a member put a TB spacer on, not sure of what brand, used the longer supplied bolts and even used some sealant. That night on the ride home, coolant in the block. Hydro-lock, now he'* screwed. He even knows his car stuff and it still failed on him some how. Made me second think that spacer.

To fight KR, I put in Auto light 104 double plantiums, when I get real concered, I'll get an intercooler.

Thanks Taylor. That'* the 2nd post I've heard about hydrolock. I think I'll stay away from that. I was gonna go with the Autolite 104'* to begin with. Maybe I'll research */C ducting like Will did.

if KR is that bad, just get an intercooler. You will have to remove the EGR if you put one in tho.
