I agree with you there! Can you imagine the first day you had it, you'd just sit with the car in neutral reving it and what not to watch it move.

[quote="4.9 EF Futura"]XR8 Dismantler,

and one of these spacers which appear to be quite popular (helix spacer? TB spacer? something like that) quote]
is it the phenolic spacer you're talking about, they are supposed to give you increased kw, due to the throttle body not getting hot

I can see this posing a problem :P

no need to turn the idle down the GT gets the shakes up at the lights anyway. I had a car bought to me from Ford for a test drive with a shaker fitted . i rekon it was the biggest thrashing the thing had ever been given when i got in it . but i had to. the shaker looked tops when you fed some right foot in.

I thought it was more that it spirals the air and makes it mix better with the fuel. I thought it was the Helix spacer.

2 different things

the helix spacer aka hiclone is a metal insert that goes in your intake before the throttlebody causing the air to spiral and possibly creating a better fuel/air mix and possibly causing better air velocity through the intake manifold runners

the phenolic spacer is most commonly seen on EFI windsors with the 2 piece inlet manifold, it sits between the upper and lower halves, insulating the upper half to a certain degree as well as making the intake runners a bit longer

you can also get the phenolic spacers for throttlebodies and carburettors

yeah i would have to agree, as your bonnet would be down, under-bonnet temps get quite high, and this spacer is supposed to keep the air from getting hot.
