Forgot to include that Paul, yours was one of the originals I made, and it's thinner. You won't need new bolts.Originally posted by taurus8916@Feb 10 2004, 02:33 PM
that reminds me bob, will I need longer bolts for my spacer then?

I'm looking into material thickness and properties now. I'd like to make them as thin as possible, while retaining the insulating capability.............. You'll all be kept in mind, and hell, for those who race their cars, I'd be willing to offer them for free, to find out if it makes a difference or not.
Either I have the wrong Duratec gasket, or there's different ones. The one I have looks like a normal gasket for an upper intake.Originally posted by SableOHC@Feb 11 2004, 11:00 PM
Sorry, my question wasn't explictWhat I meant is, the stock gasket already seems like it is an insulative spacer. What is the advantage of having a piece of phenolic instead of a thick plastic gasket.
The first Vulcan spacers were 3/8", and worked out pretty well. Then I made some 1/2", which as I posted above, are too thick. I was thinking 1/4" also, just need to make sure it has enough insulating properties to make it worthwhile.Originally posted by SHOZ123@Feb 12 2004, 01:14 AM
My gaskets are the normal painted steel. I would like some at least 1/4" thick. What thickness do you usually make them Bob?
