Mace LFX Manifold Spacers Install

Just got a package in the Mail from MACE ENGINEERING containing a 6mm and a 12 mm spacer. I will be installing the 12mm first and documenting the install. I will be driving around and doing a little logging in hp tuners as well.

Nice looking piece.

Have you thought about using copper headgasket spray? It will produce a nice think sealing layer that won't ooze all over the place.

That's a good idea... But I think if either the spacer, or lower intake piece isn't dead flat there may be a slight chance that it may not seal? Then again it may work fine.

There should be some give in the spacer to compensate for any unevenness, but then again, I have not had my hands on one so I cannot comment on how malleable or rigid the piece is.
