What is a Phenolic spacer and how does it work?


Essentially a plate that goes between the upper and lower intake manfolds. Moves the upper intake/plenum away from the engine and reduces intake temps significantly.

would that also increase teh lenght of the intake runners? giving more torque?

Damn straight Frank, thanks for pointing that out. I think there's a trade off in peak power, or the shape of the power curve, or something of the like.

Too many awesome single plane off-the-shelf manifolds in the US for the windsor!

The 6 cyl guys with EF onwards have a dual plane manifold. It can choose between 2 intake runner lengths basically. Allows EEC to control aspects of torque and power.
