            Explorer 5.0 GT40 spacer install

            Went in as expected, slightly trucky to line up all bolt holes and the 3 pieces between the upper and lower intake, have someone help, the extra set of hands is nearly required. Low end torque pickup is noticeable and provided just enough clearance for ford racing valve covers. Definitely recommend doing both since the intake has to come off. Great buy, great quality, great fit. FoMoCo!

            Good price

            Great to have extra room under the upper intake. Hardware fit my explorer gt40 intake. Great price and a little more low end grunt.

            Phenolic EFI Intake spacers

            Shipped quickly, BARELY clears Stock Hood with the popular GT40P Head, Lower swap w/a Cobra upper and E303 Cam. Noted Increased lower throttle response, middrange. Bores are dead on with the intake, no increased turbulence, lessens thermal transfer from lower to upper. Works well, came with extended fasteners for a 30 min. install.

            Over priced

            Spacer and gaskets are perfect. The kit does not have the correct bolts to make this an easy install. Not enough bolts and the long bolts supplied are not even close to being long enough. A lot of money for a kit that now I have to buy correct bolts to make it work.

            Intake spacer

            The spacer fit very well. The hardware that came with it was shorter than the stock hardware. Needless to say it was useless. Four of the six bolts would not even stick out past the space once through the intake. Went to the hardware store and bought six new bolts and then it went on fine. I have a stock Cobra intake.

            Cobra Intake spacer kit

            Kit was great quality, however the bolts were useless. None of them were long enough to fit thru the upper intake and spacer to bolt it down to the lower. Now I have to find bolts to finish the project.

            liked the actual product only reason on 4 stars is because the bolts they provided were way to short

            Well done, American Muscle

            Great product, fast shipping, you wont notice a power difference with just this mod but its the logic of cooling the air before the engine gets that makes you feel good =)

            Great product but....

            I really like the quality of the spacer but unfortunately it came with new upper bolts that were too short for my cobra intake. Not sure why exactly as the description states GT-40/Cobra intakes. Very disappointing. My review 4 stars overall but 1 for fit and I haven't got new bolts yet so I cant speak to performance.

            Spacer and gaskets fit no issue. Only one problem, the outer 4 bolts that were supplied are too long. Come on man....!!!!!!

            It's from Ford

            Keeps upper cooler for a bit longer till it gets heat saturated from the engine compartment.One of the best reason about this spacer is to be able to get the valve covers off with out yanking the intake!

            Another great Ford Racing part.

            If I can I always try to buy a Ford racing part they always match well when using other factory Ford parts.

            Ford Racing 1/2 Spacer

            Had to buy this spacer to gain adequate clearance between my Ford Racing valve covers and my upper intake plenum on my 1995 GT. The spacer was just the ticket and made just enough room for everything to fit. It was a pretty tight fit with my stock hood. The front bolt on my explorer intake plenum just barley makes contact with the hood when closed but does fully close. So make sure before you get this your hood will work, I'm using energy suspension motor mounts which are said to lower the motor 1/2 inch over stock so that was my saving grace. The only gripe i had with this kit was the fact that none of the supplied mounting hardware worked.. It was all to short for my intake, the stock long bolts actually fit perfect and as for the two short bolts i went to my local hardware store and found the right length. Over all the spacer did exactly what i needed it to and i couldn't be happier. I will say i would't buy it for performance though. Good band for your buck!
