Within reason, the bottom 1.125" of the intake manifold (the lower intake portion to be specific) is made of aluminum, and it still get's darn hot... Regardless of heat soak issues, I believe the spacer would still help increase lower end torque.

Perhaps someone should, I didn't find out what a "turd" it was until I had already bought one because I had to dig pretty deep for the info. I'm pretty determined to make something of it though.

I have seen a variety of posts stating something similar, which is why I think it would make a good sticky. Maybe I can write something up in the next day or so, if time allows.

thanks for the post. Since I am still learning about my car it is good to know that no new aftermarket headers are in my car's future.

Never mind.

I know they wouldn't be called headers but couldn't you make a pipe that goes from the heads to the cats?

Sorry for the noob question, but this is the first I've heard of this...
Thanks in advance

What's a header?

I too realized what a turd the Ls is shortly after I bought it too. It's nice to make 30 mpg, but after I see that I think I'm good and accelerate with more "ump" and it's back down to 18.

That's the way it comes from the factory.

I think it was an attempt at humor.
