Default Real Phenolic Spacer GB - GrimmSpeed style

CLOSED 5/17/07!!!!!!

ALL REMAINING PAYMENTS DUE


alright, for all of you that have patiently waited for these, here is your chance to get them These arent even on our site yet so be the first to sign up!

Do you know what your intake manifold sits on?...a superheated boxer engine. If you don't know already, the cooler your intake air is the more HP your car will achieve. We present you the answer to this age old problem, raising the intake manifold off the engine with GrimmSpeed's new real Phenolic Intake Manifold/TGV to Engine Spacer.

Phenolic spacers have been used for years by many other specialized automotive companies, but this is very new technology to the Subaru world.

-Greatly reduces the transer of heat from engine to intake manifold
-One of a kind true Phenolic material, not cutting board material like others.
-The cooler your intake temperature is the denser the air is which leads to more power.
-Direct bolt-on.
-Users may reuse stock bolts intake manifold.
-We have installed both with and without OEM Subaru Gaskets and have had no issues with either way. We recommend if you have bad mating surfaces then use an OEM gaskets on both sides.
-USA made
-Regular price: 64.99

Pricing tiers are as follows:
1-9 participants: 59.99
10-19 participants: 54.99
20+ participants: 49.99

We have OEM Subaru Gaskets as well if you would like to install them along with the spacers. $10/set or 18.99/2 sets. If you are going to use them i'd recommend buying two sets and using one oem gaskets on each side of the spacer.

Shipping to the lower 48 will be $5. Group Buy will be closed on the 17th of this month. Orders will be shipped shortly there after.

I can attest to these running flawlessly without any sort of gasket.

Great piece and an awesome intro price! The install is cake too.

Oh and not a bad time to get some GrimmSpeed TGV Deletes, Ported and Polished Intake Manifold, Throttle Body and some sort of Turbo Inlet Pipe... This can somewhat complicate the install though.

How's the install on these? I've never had to pull the intake manifold on my WRX, just wondering what I'd be in for.

Would one have to use a longer than stock intake bolt if you use a stock gasket on each side of the phenolic spacer?

Any height problems with the slightly raised intake?

...TB to TMIC still good?

You dont need to take the intake manifold off to install. It is possible to install these by just lifting up the intake mani and inch or two. I did it a couple days ago and worked perfectly.

you can still use the oem bolts even if you use oem gaskets on both sides. a few of our testers used this method. no height problems at all with the tmic.

I can vouch for the above statement(s) - I pulled my manifold due to the fact that it, along with the other stuff that I "plugged" for Justin above were replaced; however, having experimented with and without OEM gaskets on the spacers, I can assure everyone that they can be swapped without pulling the manifold and TGVs AND you can use the stock bolts with and without the OEM gaskets.

This install really is cake, guys...

u say u can just lift the manifold up some to install these, though everytime ( 3 times now) I have removed my manifold I have had the gaskets stick to one of the mating surfaces and tear. Wouldnt it be a safer approach to plan on taking the manifold off completely to install these? Also I am still wondering if u need to bypass the coolant lines entering the throttle body so the coolant doesnt heat what u are cooling with the install of these. What do u think about doing this and how?

Totally valid point, but I've personally never had an issue with this... I guess it really just depends on a bunch of different factors (age of car and/or mileage, if the OEM gaskets have every been disturbed then reused, etc). Personally, I'd say that if you ran in to this issue, having a razor blade attached to the end of a slim item like a paint stirrer could potentially resolve an issue like this pretty easily... Just make sure to take one's time and avoid scraping anything down in to the head.

i'd definitely make sure to be careful when scraping the old gaskets off it yours are stuck onto the heads. if yours are really stuck on the head that bad it would probably be safer to take it off.
