The manifold spacer for me was a good low end torque bump. The car accelerates harder but I feel like I may have sacrificed a bit of high end torque, but either way, I think it was worth it as I'm not constantly driving around at 6300 rpms. Hope that helps

I'm gonna try to find the time to install mine this year when the weather breaks.
spacer, ported runners and TL manifold.
Time for a valve adjustment, so while I've got it apart...

finally had some time to get this installed. NVA-AV6's on V6P did a great write up on install

i've got a few aftermarket parts and hopefully if you have any of these parts, it will make the install that much easier

i did take thisaznboi88's advice and got Permatex Copper Spray a Gasket Hi Temp Sealent








during the install, i found it easier to remove the 4 12mm Bolts holding the Throttle Body because these 2 hoses underneath the TB was a pain to remove for me:





when install was finish, all hoses lined up fairly well except this one EVAP hose underneath:





i also removed these 2 10mm bolts and will need to adjust for the height difference:





aftermarket parts:

1. DC Sports Front Strut Bar. this 10mm bolt barely clears it and i will be mounting it somewhere else:





2. Acura TL Engine Cover - its a super tight fit so i trimmed the back a bit...probably could take a bit less off than i did:









the Install pics by NVA-AV6 were on PhotoBucket and i'm going to re-upload them since they were super helpful with the install...original Thread is on V6P (pics are not in original order):

last pic is of Torque Specs for bolts under @ 16 lbs, top @ 8.7 lbs, lastly this took me a while to find again but for those with Front Strut Bar / Upper Tower Brace, torque is: The spec for the 10mm strut nuts is 37 ft lbs. The 8mm nuts are 16 ft lbs.
