    Borla Catback Exhaust, Airaid Short Ram Intake, 285x75R16 Mickey Thompson MTZs, 16" Konig Countersteer rims, ARB Bumper, All Pro LT w/Walker Evan Shocks front and back, All Pro expedition leaf pack, 10,000lb Superwinch, Intake Manifold Spacer, Bed Rack with ARB RTT, Rotopack and Hi Lift mounted, Husky Liner mats and an air freshener from 1995.
    So on a full tank with this spacer I saw a full MPG gain. (Fuelly does not lie.) My drive is exactly the same every day and is 95% highway. I always fill up at the same station and almost always at the same pump. When the pump clicks off I round up to the $.

    Been getting 19.5mpg for the past 5+ tanks if not longer. This tank I had 20.5mpg.

    See if things progress/improve even further as the engine learns.

    That being said, I can honestly say we're not getting anything near the gain that the Nissan's are. The Power gains are minor but given the amount I drive every day (180 miles each day) this is very much worth it for me. As I've mentioned before the engine does pull stronger in lower RPM ranges, but if you're thinking this is like slapping forced induction on your whip, you're going to be sorely mistaken.

    Would purchase again.

    Also getting it Anodized is a waste of money me thinks. You'd be hard hard pressed to see it unless you squint at it. But to each their own.

    Lower temperature means better performance.. not quite sure if we're comparing apples to apples on the equilibrium part.

    Maybe you just lost a lot of water weight during the install because it's so freakin hot up here :)

    I mean cause the heat.

    And they warp while I'm on some rocks having fun

    How does mpg prove better low-end power? Which is what the claim is... Not increased mileage

    And no offense "homeboy", but I can make my display say whatever I want with some creativity.

    Suit yourself. I know it works. A few of us have felt improved low end torque and more power.

    Having the material be aluminum vs plastic is irreverent. The plastic manifold is normally mounted to the aluminum block. putting another aluminum spacer would marginally change the intake temp if anything.

    better low-end = engine works less to accelerate from 0-30ish and aid in smoother shifting in the low gears.

    I've noticed a lot of casual driving (in my auto) that my truck won't shift from 1-2-3 until 3.5k+ rpms when it *could* shift into gears closer to 2k rpms, thus conserving some fuel running on less revs. saving gas here and there will give back an additional 1-2mpg/tank.

    My mileage can vary at least 2 or more miles per gallon just with different weather, road, or traffic conditions. Now an overall consistent average from documented fillups taken over time would be much more convincing...

    ...but then so would



    dyno runs. :anonymous:

    I think that it would ever so slightly lower temps because the same heat is being radiated in all directions from a slightly larger total mass of aluminum.

    the only way to know would be add a thermometer...Aluminum transfers heat so easily that it may or may not drop the temp.

    Yeah, but I don't think that small bit of added metal would make a measurable difference.

    (continues beating... ;) )
