I've got a 1" spacer, if that will do the job, $20 and postage.

the bolded text better not be directed at me.....

I fully intend to use a 1" once my shaker mod is done, may have to add a bonnet bulge to accommodate it, but it will be fitted, one day :roll:, and they come with the bolts (although I would keep them :P ), I bought it at the same time as the 3/8" I currently have fitted.

Just thought I would offer it up incase he was unable to source one at a reasonable priced locally and maybe machine it down or something, it cost me practically nothing coming across with the other stuff I got at the time so getting another down the track won't matter.

guess I won't be so generous next time.

Yep, HPW - made by Trickflow to suit the explorer/cobra. A fair bit more than $60 though, more around the $100 to $120 was the last quote I got.

Yeah mate definately between $100-120, just chased one up and recently and their supplier didnt have or couldnt get hold of any trickflow 3/8" ones, could only get the FMS 1/2" ones, but i'm pretty sure i would have underside of bonnet clearance problems with the 1/2" so i'll just patiently wait for the 3/8".

Also the FMS 1/2" ones come with longer bolts.
