Intake Spacers

Chevrolet / Pontiac 2.8L V6 Garolite Throttle Body Spacer

This 1 inch thick throttle body spacer works with the 2.8L V6, such as equipped Pontiac Fiero GT’s. The spacer is installed between the intake manifold and the throttle body, where the throttle body gasket is located (shown as #3 in the picture below).

The cooler throttle body will also help keep the power level stay more consistent. Most cars feel slightly sluggish on very hot days, or after a lot of stop-and-go driving. Part of this is because of the intake air becoming warmer. These spacers will help stop this power loss. This works even better in combination with completely blocking of the throttle body coolant line.

This spacer can also be used as a spot to tap a nitrous line. By tapping in the spacer, no permanent hole is placed on the manifolds, for future sale or warranty work.

I recommend buying an extra stock gasket from your local parts store, and sandwiching the spacer between two stock gaskets. RTV or equivalent sealant can also be used.

Ford Cosworth YB DOHC 16v Turbo Garolite Intake Spacer

This 3/8 inch thick intake spacer is designed for the Ford Cosworth YB DOHC 16-valve Turbo engine. The engines that are compatible with this spacer will have the intake manifold as shown below. This spacer fits between the upper and lower intake manifolds, as shown.

The longer runners will help high-end power by straightening the airflow towards the cylinder at a farther distance from the valve, allowing it to gain momentum.

Insulating spacers have been around for a long time, and are a proven performance item.

Installation of this spacer is very straightforward, and is the same process as changing the stock gasket.

Garolite Intake Spacer for Mopar SOHC 12v 3.0L

This 1 inch thick intake spacer kit works with the vehicles that have the 12 valve 6G72 Mitsubishi V6 found in Mopar vehicles from the 80’s and 90’s.

These spacers will also add volume to your plenum, which will help increase torque throughout the powerband. Also the longer runners will help high-end power by straightening the airflow towards the cylinder at a farther distance from the valve, allowing it to gain momentum.

Insulating spacers have been around for a long time, and are a proven performance item.

This spacer is 1 inch thick to provide as much insulation as possible, while still having hood clearance. It is shipped with longer mounting bolts (5/16-24 X 3") because the spacer is much thicker than the stock gasket. Installation of this spacer is very straightforward, and is the same process as changing the stock gasket.

I recommend buying an extra stock gasket from your local parts store, and sandwiching the spacer between two stock gaskets. RTV or equivalent sealant can also be used.

Garolite Throttle Body Spacer for Mopar SOHC 12v 3.0L

This 1 inch thick intake spacer kit works with the vehicles listed below. The spacer is installed between the intake manifold and the throttle body, where the throttle body gasket is located.

Since this spacer can fit on hundreds of combinations (vehicles, makes, and engines), please verify that there will not be any clearance problems arising from moving the throttle body out one inch.

The cooler throttle body will also help keep the power level stay more consistent. Most cars feel slightly sluggish on very hot days, or after a lot of stop-and-go driving. Part of this is because of the intake air becoming warmer. These spacers will help stop this power loss. This works even better in combination with blocking of the throttle body coolant line (if applicable).

Honda F22 Engine Garolite Throttle Body Spacer

This 1/2 inch thick intake spacer works with Honda F33 engine vehicles. The spacer is installed between the intake plenum and the throttle body.

Since this spacer can fit on hundreds of combinations (vehicles, makes, and engines), please verify that there will not be any clearance problems arising from moving the throttle body out one half inch.

The cooler throttle body will also help keep the power level stay more consistent. Most cars feel slightly sluggish on very hot days, or after a lot of stop-and-go driving. Part of this is because of the intake air becoming warmer. These spacers will help stop this power loss. This works even better in combination with blocking of the throttle body coolant line (if applicable).

L36 / L67 3800 Stainless Steel Intake Pipe

Cheetah’s 3800 cold-air intake pipe fits in place of the stock intake box and tubing. The pipe is made from a single piece of 3.5″ mandrel-bent 304 Stainless Steel. This pipe attaches to the stock rubber pipe on the throttle body, and puts the air filter in the fender area. This area gets the coolest air, and has become a favorite of many Grand Prix owners.

The large diameter of this pipe requires opening of the fender hole. This can be accomplished by bending back the metal sheet. The filter and pipe can be taken on and off of the car as a unit with the plastic splash guard off.

Any K&N style air filter can be used, as long as the flange ID is 3.5 – 4 inches, to properly tighten on the pipe. The filter that we recommend is the SB R0817. This is the filter shown in the pictures with the chrome cap.

The stock Air Temperature Sensor location can be maintained, but we recommend putting the sensor in the pipe near the filter. This will stop the sensor from getting heat-soaked from the engine, which will make the sensor read a higher temperature than actual temperature of the incoming air. This could possibly pull back the timing, which robs even more power. Cheetah recommends putting the sensor in the fender area of the pipe, about 1 inch downstream of the air filter.

The Grand Prix Store sells an extension for this sensor, but I just cut and wired my own extension.

Also shown to the left is the splash guard that I run on my Grand Prix. It is simply a piece of Aluminum bent at a 90 angle and has had two holes drilled into it. These holes allow it to be fit between the bumper and fender guard, and bolted in between as shown. This helps keep the filter clean and dry, and a guard is recommended for everyday driving.

This intake also removes much of the clutter on the driver side of the engine bay. The stock airbox is quite large, since it holds a large flat filter and the PCM.

The PCM can be held down with a GM part made for 2001 Chevrolet Blazers. This can be bought from any GM dealer as p/n 15995679.

L36 3800 Series II Camaro / Firebird Garolite Intake Spacer

This 1/2″ thick intake spacer works with the 3800 Series II RWD engine in the Pontiac Firebird and Chevrolet Camaro. The spacer is installed between the lower and upper intake manifold, where the intake gasket is located.

These spacers will also add volume to your plenum, which will help increase torque throughout the powerband, along with the inherit cooling properties. Insulating spacers have been around for a long time, and are a proven performance item.

Installation of this spacer is very straightforward, and is the same process as changing the stock gasket.

We recommend buying an extra stock gasket from your local dealer, and sandwiching the spacer between two stock gaskets. The GM p/n is 24504789.

Mitsubishi / Hyundai Garolite Throttle Body Spacer

This 1" thick intake spacer kit works with the vehicles listed below. The spacer is installed between the intake manifold and the throttle body, where the throttle body gasket is located (shown as #9 in the picture below).

Mitsubishi 2.5L / 3.0L V6 Garolite Intake Spacer

This 1/4 inch thick intake spacer works with the above vehicles. The spacer is installed between the lower and upper intake manifold, where the intake gasket is located.

This spacer is 1/4 inch thick to provide as much insulation as possible, while still retaining stock intake supports and bolts. Installation of this spacer is the same process as changing the spark plugs. A good write-up of a spark plug installation can be seen here.

I recommend buying an extra stock gasket from your local dealer, and sandwiching the spacer between two stock gaskets. The Chrysler p/n for the 2.5L and the SOHC 3.0L is MD199282, for around $8. The Chrysler p/n for the DOHC Non-Turbo 3.0L is MD143791, and around $10. Although these use different part number gaskets, the newer MD199282 can be used in place of the MD143791. The MD199282 just has two extra holes. That is why this spacer is made to the MD199282, so that one spacer will work for all three engines. These gaskets can also be picked up at any Mitsubishi dealer. I would not recommend RTV or equivalent sealants since the walls around the openings are so small.
