Now that the prototype 2 inch thick intake manifold spacer has been dyno tested and has proven that it lowers the torque curve without sacrificing top end horsepower, I'm curious of how much buying interest there might be in this product. It will be CNC machined out of a solid block of the same black nylon material that your intake manifold is made of so that it will appear to be an integral part of your manifold.

It will look just like this except that it will be black nylon...



This is not your commitment to buy, nor is it a group buy, or an advance paid order. I won't take your money up front and make you to have to wait for a product to be made. This is only to see how many of you would be interested in buying a spacer if the price is right. This will help me to plan on how many spacers to have made up. There's no minimum production run because I'm the one who is paying all of the costs up front. I'm taking all the risks with my own money so your risk is zero. If just one person is interested in buying just one spacer...

...I'll have just one made.

I already consider this project to be a success because I'm already enjoying the results every day when I drive my truck.

So simply post up in this thread if you're interested, and if you don't mind, also include a brief description of how you use your truck and how think this part might benefit you, and I'll edit this first post to add your name to the list.

Greg

Tooter, what kind of price we looking at?

My truck uses = Daily driven, drifter, track truck.
The quicker I can get to my peak torque, the better.

There is also more information in 3 other locations. Two of them are in the "4 cylinder" section:

"tooter 2.7 intake manifold spacer"

"2.7 dyno charts"

And one is in "tuning and performance":

"N/A Power Gains - Dynos w/Mods"

I'm not sure just yet, Guy. The material costs are still being researched, as we don't presently have a source for nylon blocks. I also need to source the installation hardware and O ring gaskets. As soon as I find out, I'll let everyone here know.

Hey, if you run a tooter 2.7 at the drags and post your timing slips, I'll send you a free one. I'll be your first race sponsor.

From how it feels driving my truck, I believe that it'll help you to get better shot out of the hole which should lower your et's

Sorry, man... only one race sponsor.

SingelCabGuy has been taking the time and effort to run his 2.7 at the drag strip and has been posting his results here. Because he has already logged a valuable performance profile for the 2.7, he's the right one to run a tooter at the drags.

Does that mean you'd like to be added to the list? It's not a commitment to buy. I just need a rough idea of about how many to have made on the first production run.

I'll let everyone know up front the price the spacers will be offered for sale when I know the costs of raw materials, gaskets, and hardware, so then you can decide at that time whether or not you think it's worth your while to buy.

I'm interested in the spacer. It'd be great to grab some low end torque to turn some larger tires.
