RPW Thermo Block Intake Spacers?

Anybody have any experience with these? Do they help with the GS as much as the Outlaw spacers help the GT?

Are there any other options out there? From my searching, this is the only manifold spacer set for the GS -- can someone enlighten me?

How much does the shipping from Australia cost?

Pretty much -- should I get these and will they help me; and if you have experience with them, then that makes it a lot better (or other suggestions).

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm a straight dumbass and....well, that's why you guys are here and why I love you so much

Thanks for any help guys!

Check the group buy section there was a group buy on some spacers that someone makes here in the states. I think the guy is from Evom.

I'm rocking the RPW's I did a group buy on them about two yrs ago we ordered 10 sets. I wouldn't say there is any noticeable gains from them, but the intake manifold does run cooler with them on.

Do they actually help? Did you feel any difference?

Either way, like you said; every little but helps. But I know the GT guys rave about the Outlaw spacers and I was just wondering if this was a similar upgrade for us....

In other words did you notice enough difference to justify $115 plus shipping from Australia?

^ u will notice a very slight difference, it feels a little more responsive because it is allowing denser air to be taken in

just one of those little things that will add up in the end. I say go for it. they certainly help the GT - especially right when you start a cold engine. the effect seems to where off a little as the engine heats up, but again, every little thing you can do. This + water wetter + TB bypass all adds up to keep the engine even just a little cooler.

I added a purple power additive to my coolant (can't remember the name) that's supposed to keep your coolant cooler, so far it actually working if my gauge is accurate. Kinda surprised me.

It sounds simple, but I'm not sure if the spacer fits the TB or the actual piece the TB connects to....

Actually the gt spacer will work better i had the gs spacer on mine and if u look in the tb u can see the gs spacer blocking air flow not alot but the gt spacer will allow more flow. i went from a 60 mm gs tb to a 66 mm tb big diff, and yes both tbs were marked with the size

Yeah...sounds like the GS spacer could easily be adapted using a dremel tool. The spaces made a noticeable difference in temperature between the TB and intake and again intake upper intake and lower intake on the GT. It is just one of the little things that by itself doesn't appear to do much but the cumulative effect is what you are going for

Dremel that stupid GS spacer out. It'll be fine. If you're that worried mark it with a pen and just don't go past your pen marks.

Hey guys, does anyone have a link to where i can purchase one of these RPW intake spacers for my 07 SE? and i may have misread some of the replies but the intake spacer for the GT is universal with the GS's as well? or did i read something wrong?

TheFootOfGod has a spectacular aura about
it is universal. the 4cyl and the gt v6 are the same engine so no worries there. just buy all gt parts for your gs, they bolt right on!


all you need is a lot of 3m tape for the exhaust and intake. i used the tape for my spacers too!
when you melt down the tape it creats a nice seal in your engine to help with boost pressure once you turbo it. gl brah!
