How's about this...(if Dave is up to it) all those interested in the
"Phenolic Spacers" sign up and contribute a small amount and this becomes
the GB list (Run by Emre?), the entry fee into the GB pays for the better
portion or hopefully if enough sign up it pays for the full amount of Dave's
Phenolic Spacer, he does all the dirty for us and reports back with his
findings giving us the "thumbs up or thumbs down". If the results are what
we want then we go ahead, but only those that signed up can get the
group-buy price, if Dave gives the thumbs down then we all invested a small
bit to get our answer! 

Emre if you can set this up with Richard Hoffman to get a good deal for Dave
and set a GB price depending on the amount of participants... and of course
that's if Dave is up to the challenge!

I'd be willing to sign up, I trust Dave's thumbs.

I don't think there's any question that the heat sent into the IM from the
head isn't a good thing.  But how bad is it, is the question.
Now... you're asking me to buy a $160 part, and spend another $100 at the
dyno?  Sounds silly for me to fork out $260 to tell everyone else if it's
worth while or not... BUT, I'd probably do it, if it weren't such a huge
PITA to remove the IM with the head in the car.

You're into experimenting, why not have one made for yourself (or buy
one from Autospeed), and try it on your dyno day? *makes evil grin*

I don't know about everyone else, but having a part of my intake tract
NOT in direct contact with an extremely hot piece pf metal (AKA the
head) seems like a great idea. I'll take all the unfair advantage I
can get. Gains HAVE been reported from those with turbo Audi motors,
as well as other makes.
