99/01 cobra intake spacer?

  1. does anyone know what company is making the intake spacer for the 99 and up cobras.

    goes under the IAC. I need it for new injector space. :D
  2. PHP makes an intake manifold spacer for the 99-01 cobra and 03+ Mach 1. It does not go under the IAC though, it goes between the upper and lower plenum. I run one of my cobra and have been pretty impressed on the torque increase.
  3. Just installed the PHP intake spacer. A really easy, low bucks mod. No dyno yet, but impressive SOTP. Accelerates smoothly and has more torque below 3,000. So far, well worth the money.

    Has anyone else tried it?
  4. I thought of machining one of these like 4 years ago, but I didnt believe it would do much. How do you bolt up the EGR tube after that spacer is on? Doesnt seem like it would reach anymore.
    What are your gains?
  5. The EGR pipe has a couple of bends in it that straighten out pretty easy. I read in another forum where the guy took it off and tried to reshape it in a vise but had an awful time getting it to line back up. I just removed the EGR valve from the upper manifold, pulled it to the side and installed the spacer. Very easy. I then took a large prybar, placed a piece if wood on the manifold and carefully pulled the pipe up. It stretched easily. It only needs to move 3/8". Then all I had to do was align the bolt holes and bolt it up. Be sure you can get the bolts in several turns by hand before using the wrench. It all worked fine.

    I haven't dyno'ed it yet but SOTP if accelerates smoother and quicker below 3,000.
  6. how easy of a job is that to do? my buddies got a spacer for his 95 gt but said he aint got the time to put it on? im kinda interested myself
  7. Easy install, the EGR tube takes a bit of persuation but that is all.

    Here are a couple of pics:

  10. Why isnt there a spacer made for the 96-98 Cobras? I know that the 99 has a different intake manifold, but it cant be that much different.
  11. Yeah....what can we do for 96-98s???

  12. I just ordered one...i hope it works with Kenne Bell I plan to get this fall

  13. They already have a nice size upper plenum.


  14. your kidding right? the kenne bell blower will make your stock intake obsolete...
  15. True That Brother! :nice:
  16. any clearnance issues for those who have strut tower braces?

  17. yeah i kinda realized what i typed after the fact i ordered the Intake spacer before i made plans to get the KB but thats ok....i think the KB will be more than a good replacement for the spacer...lol
  18. Does anyone have any dyno info on these. last time I herd about these, people were saying that they were loosing peak hp from them on the tumble port intakes (99+).
  19. I want one for my 98 Cobra. This is not fair. Everyone quit making stuff for our cars. I would at least like one of these. You all with the 99 and newer models get everything. I would like to have a predator too, but i don't see that happening either.
