Huh, that's new... Yup, the 1/2" ones are probably very similar to that... A little more than I was planning to charge. Oh well...

I got the batch of 1/2" ones cut yesterday, I made a few changes. Made the port holes matched to the Ports, rather than the gasket. They also have provisions to actually fit the gaskets, so you won't have to cut the alignment cones, or sand the nubs off the bottom of the gaskets if you wish to use 2 gaskets for the install. Pics later today.

Wow that is new.

I can't believe that MACE isn't on here promoting them....they are still a vendor aren't they?

If I had an LFX, I'd be all over it....assuming it works successfully like the LLT version does.

Got this thought after my last post, but I hope someone on here has a stock or very near stock LFX dyno, and then does intake, cats, exhaust, ported LFX intake, and insulator on their car with a CUSTOM tune (like from FSP).

I'm thinking it would beat a fully bolted on LLT with headers and that would be awesome. 360 - 370 HP LFX perhaps?

Hope that's a mistake because it does have a $ sign and last I check that means US currency. If it's right and they are 150 thats a little steep

That's about the going rate for these... The Vmax LLT ICEolator is $150, and it's only 3/8" thick. At least on the LLT these "isolators" show quite a nice gain for the money, no one has any "proven" numbers yet for the LFX that I can find, only speculation.

It appears that they are not a current vendor of Camaro5... Upon digging a little deeper it seems they have listed both the isolator "to suit" the VE Commodore LLT, and the Camaro LLT separately... Not sure why, none of my business really... I would assume it is the same part? Perhaps they don't have one "to suit" the Camaro LFX yet??

Would be nice if someone did... Personally, I'll go as far as I can without a tune before it's absolutely necessary. I will have the bone-stock dyno on the 3rd, along with the others I've mentioned... In the near future, I'll basically everything but a tune, as long as it appears to stay on the safe side, but as of yet, I have not installed my wide band on the car, but I will before I think I'm getting too crazy.

Just a quick question, have you gotten back to the PMs yet? Have you already found enough volunteers?

The Australian dollar uses the same symbol.

Looking good. I am very interested in what testing shows for these!

I'm not ignoring anyone, I apologize that you weren't picked to try these out. Not trying to be rude, but do you realize how many people jump at the chance for free stuff for "testing". If I just gave them to everyone that wanted to "test" them, I'd be in the poor house.

At least I'm supplying them for independent testing, as well as my own, rather that estimating a gain and sending them out the door. Rest assured, they will either show some kind of confirmed gain, or I won't sell them.

I think that's a pretty decent way to get customers

I'm not begging for free stuff dude, just some common courtesy.... How hard is it to reply to my PM with, "Sorry man, already have four people lined up, but I'll keep you updated on the progress and the gains and let you know if they end up for sale "

I mean really, it took me saying I was ignored for you to tell me this.....
