Default Got a new part!

Alright here it is! I've always liked the old school look. I still need to get a crankcase breather before I install. I'll probably mod the TB before the install as well. I might have to cut down my 'S' bolt in order to make this filter work. Any ideas?

Can you be a little more specific, which part melts? The housing is chrome finish, will that melt? Or do you mean the foam filter will melt? I've never heard of this being an issue.

Yeah, I've got a short air intake on it right now, but like I said before I like the old school look.

I am sure he means the foam filter. Years ago I had one on a '68 big block Chevelle and the filter melted on me.

Right on, thanks for the heads up. I'll have to keep an eye on it after I do the install.

Default Another part

Hey all, forgot to tell you when I bought my Edelbrock, my parts store has a Helix TB spacer in stock for my engine. Asking $160 for it, but with my discount I'm pretty sure I'll get it for a better price. I know there is lots of talk (good/bad) about TB spacers whether they actually work. Anyone out there running with one?
Any and all input (good/bad/otherwise) will be a huge help for me making a decision about possibly buying this part!
