I bought it from my cousin, he had it on his mustang before wreaking it.
I just sent him a text message, if he responds I'll let you know. Its was the only bolt on Ive done so far that I felt a big improvement.

Oh and I paid him 15 dollars for it..lol

I'll try and figure out where he got it though.

You will not see a huge difference, if any at all. I was just looking into them, and I was told by several people that they are a waste of the $65 or how ever many dollars they cost, and a waste of whatever time you put into putting them on. Intake/TB spacers probably do about as much as a Turbonator. But if you're pushing 500rwhp and running out of possible mods, go for it.

My advice, take it or leave it, is to save up for that tuner and gears. Those actually do make a difference.

Actually, I've heard intake spacers do pretty good for Machs..

I made my own, and didnt really notice a difference, I wouldn't pay for one. id go with a plenum first. Seems the spacer helps get rid of some turbulence caused by the quick bend in the stock plenum, something usually fixed by an aftermarket plenum.

you wont need it if you get a bigger plenum and T/B. you will notice just a minimal gain with the plenum and T/B, but better off getting some gears. those you will love!!!
