Outlaw Engineering Thermoblock Spacer Kit...Whats in the box?

Hey Guys

I just got the Thermoblock spacer kit so I thought you all might want to see what was in the box. I also have a P2R throttle body gasket on hand to compare to the one that comes in the Outlaw kit.

Outlaw Kit


The two throttle body gaskets side by side; the Outlaw is on the right in both photos.


Compare the thicknesses.


The Outlaw is easily twice as thick as the P2R and the facing material to the intake manifold/throttle body is the same as the honda gasket. The P2R feels just like a thick piece of plastic.

Against a ruler


The hardware in the kit provides new bolts/studs for you to attach the new spacer but also longer bolts/studs to accommodate the thicker gasket for the throttle body.

Its finally installed.



It does seem to help to smooth the power delivery a bit more but its a very small change.

I think the main goal of the kit is to provide a steadier stream of cool air, which means that you would have a more consistent source of power delivery in hot weather especially. That's my take on it at least. Nothing that you can really show on a dyno, except maybe after repeated runs to show that you're not LOSING power.

I don't see how adding more space will get you anything except a lighter wallet

You are preventing heat soak from the block to the intake manifold.

The kit was never meant to add any power just to make things be more efficient. Granted it'll still suffer some heat soak from ambient heat the more you drive in stop n' go traffic but the IM will have a better chance of reducing heat directly from the block.
