Ummmmm I like it. I like it a lot. It took about 60-70 miles before I began to feel the difference. So you may be a bit underwhelmed for the the first 50 or so miles but once the ECU learns how to manage the changes you will definitely feel a difference.

It really won't do anything for the exhaust at all. It's best if you go with the rtv stuff. You can get it at any auto zone or advanced auto

Yes RTV is what you use. I actually did notice a slight change in my exhaust. A bit more free sounding is the best way to describe it. Nothing dramatic. Your current exhaust may not exploit it though. Your guy will have to make some modifications to your existing gasket as well. It's pretty easy to figure out though. Even a caveman could do it.

The gray 1 minute stuff is fine.

I used permatex and l have to agree it definitely is worth the money for the boost it gives you.

In the Sponsors classifieds, V6 bolts on section Tracy just left some dyno results on the 3/8" versus the 1" isolator.

He said that down low the 1" showed a few more HP than the 3/8" but nearly tied until about 5,800 rpm but at 6,500 the 1" showed a 14HP loss. So that makes me think a few things:

1) Now I remember way back when one of the initial tests on the 1" Mace was done, it too showed a loss at the peak RPM range, but that was written of as a fluke or tune issue. Makes me wonder if it wasn't fairly accurate and maybe the 12mm wouldn't be the best all around spacer??

2) The RX black ice spacers are gasket matched, whereas the MACE is matched to factory holes. If the heads were not gasket matched for Tracy's tests, could that have caused turbulence resulting in the loss?? (I've asked Tracy this in the other thread and awaiting his response now)


Also, does anyone know if the 12mm MACE spacer is two separate pieces like the 1" or one full piece like the black ice?
