phenolic blower spacer testing

I am currently on the hunt for a company who will sell me single sheets right now and am looking for anyone with a STOCK or lightly moded car with maybe just 2.55 and headers or something along those mods who would be interested in testing this product with me.

I am making one for my car but unlike the companies trying to sell stuff I am willing to admit the hp gains on a car like mine are going to be higher than on a lightly overboosted car.

The blower spacer works, its been tested and sold by d3 for the lsa for years. My problem is the fact its aluminum ( major heat conducting) and 3 arms and 2 legs expensive. Our zl1s have more space between lid and strut brace and I want to make one that is thicker than what's offered.
The thin one offered adds 63"s of added volume, I'm looking to double this.. this will/should cool the charge even more and help with turbulence a lot... only one way to know.
Bottom line, anybody want one to test? Ill ship it if you will test it and get real dyno results.
I'm looking for a 6 speed car if possible as these are less susceptible to driveline loss and both my zl and caddy are auto. I will send one out to a auto car if enough begging is done ...

I'm going to try and get the sheets by the end of the week. The spacer will come with washers cut to move the brick as well and the longer lid bolts....only making 2-3 right now...

The main issue will be the tight space behind the blower under the cowl.. this will be a part that requires time to put on. The real world input I get from whoever gets these will be shared right here openly at c5

no doubt a good idea as phenolic spacers work on other platforms. I used them on a lightly modded Mercedes E55 AMG and they had been confirmed to reduce temps.

Yup. Ran 'em on my SRT8 with a ProCharger @ 11psi. Went from cooking an egg off the aluminum intake manifold to barely being able to warm your mittens.

I have a stock A6 with access to a dyno for back to back testing. I'm in if you want me. I live in NJ. Let me know if I can Help.

ADM has done this except it was for a Nitrous set up. I bet he can have the spacer built in a couple days
