    I have two one inch spacers on my TBI (aftermarket Howell F.I.) I haven't really noticed anything at all... except maybe a little hesitation when I first hit the throttle.

    I don't notice anything on the upper end, as I have a very low-end TORQUE cam.

    What cam do you have?

    They certainly don't provide $90 worth of difference. Save your money, unless you can get a free one like mudhog did! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    They will do screwy things to anything run by vacuum, which is why they are not CARB approved here in CA. They are supposed to improve throttle response, and give you more torque, haven't heard any real numbers yet though.
