Just wondering if anyone would be interested in a one in throttle body spacer?


I have been running one for years and seems like I've been getting a little bit of interest and getting some more made. This is for TBI cars. I hope to get some pricing this week but obviously the more I make the better the price will be I'm guessing in the ballpark of 80 to 100 dollars.

They give little bit more of a plenum effect and a little more room for fuel to atimize for a little bit better performance...  And in thoery little broader torque range.

How thick is the plate?  And does it work with people that are already aftermarket injectors that have spaces?  I know for me, and most other guys things are pretty tight against the hood already.

Also, how does it effect, if it all, the coolant passages that run through the TB?

EDIT: I'm interested.

Plate is what ever size u like i guess... I don't have a strquest so I would need some input on hood clearance, my engine is in a mighty max.

Plate will be drilled for coolant passages

Like Techboy said there is limited room between upper tophat and the hood.  It would have to be pretty thin.  As it is some of the aftermarket injectors space up the tophat and chew up the hood insulation.

1/2 spacers under fic injectors will put a dent in your hood if you don't have insulation to cushion the movement. It's very tight space. I had fic shorten my injectors a little and different seals to drop them down some along w 1/4 spacers.
