I would like to know if anyone has done the TB
pheno spacer mod yet and what the comments are
regarding the install and overall effect it has. I understand it's not a powergainer. I just want to find out if really works to cool things down further than with-out it.

Also, I need to know if any of you know where I
can either get my TB bored or purchase a bigger
TB that would fit my car, 93'GT. Someone had posted an address for RC Engineering but their site and the phone numbers I came up with didn't work.

If someone could just piont me in the right
direction, I would appreciate it. ;)

Thank you.

I response to my own questions:

I am assured by Outlaw Engineering ;) that there are no real adjustments having to be reported on the TB Pheno install and that it does improve the temperature.

gil i hope you asked sean about the gains when you met him on saturday! ;)

anyhow, lalo just put this in his car sunday but we were unable to check anything, as his car would not start. he and jorge spent the better part of 8 hours installing new rotors and brake lines. i feel bad i wasn't there to help them. we could have cut that time in half and still had tools to fix lalo's ignition problem. :(

D'oh!! I knew I had forgot something besides not bringing bringing enough hotdog buns. :p We did manage to ask him if we could get him to join us on or next Pheno mod day! If we have enough people I can host at my mom's in Whittier. it has a long driveway and plenty of parking, a yard to BBQ at. What do you think?


lalo... his car would not start. :(
I hate it when that happens.

hey, i can't help it if i know how to work on cars. :(

yeah, lalo put in the ss brake lines, new black cadmium plated powerstops and porterfield r4s pads. we had a problem trying to bleed a rear caliper on top of the ignition problem. when he had the car towed to a shop, it turns out the lines still had quite a bit of air in them and the problem caliper worked out fine. the ignition problem was reportedly detonated spark plugs. ouch.

i still say that if i was there sooner, we could have found out the problem while the car was still on the base. oh yeah, this work was done at MCAS miramar. kinda odd being called sir by the grunts posted at the entrance.
