BLOX Spacer??? Any Good???

Caught a glimpse of it on eBay:--->> . 300%+ cheaper than MotorDyne and 250% cheaper than Skunk2. Question is, is it any good?

Has anyone ever installed one on their G? Any feedback?

It's probably so much cheaper since it is made out of polymer rather than aluminum. I have never seen that brand or heard of anyone using it. I saw a thread on My350Z where someone is trying to DYI a spacer out of polymer which may help you out for more info.

Come on guys, have an open mind. Totally ignoring this products possible advantages, just because there's a "standard" spacer that everyone uses, is a bit ignorant. The product looks to be identical to the Skunk2 in composition. New products coming into the market is how products get better and drive prices down. Competition!

Found another review of it on a different forum:

Quote:
Since Skunk2 doesnt make their plenum spacer anymore, or at least no one sells it, i decided to buy the cheap new 3/4 in Blox spacer ($90 + 22 for the gasket = 115) because i have a week left of no school. Ive searched on here before for blox and discovered nothing, so heres a rundown of the product in case some people are thinking of purchasing it:

-Its made out plastic and coated with something, idk what
-Dont expect it to not have scratches
-Doesnt come with a gasket (which i knew before hand)
-the hardware is a little cheap looking (looks more like something to build a deck with, imo)
-no instructions.

Its a very cheap product but its seems that it worked. I idled the car for 15 min warm after installation and revved a little bit and theres no stalling. Took the car for a test drive, and although it idles a tad lower (at least i think) the idle is still smooth. If it was leaking the idle would considerably choppy. As for performance...the car has a very distinct growl now, it is easily noticable. I cant feel any specific gains but then again i wasnt revving past 4k on my test drives.

I agree that you should not discredit anything until it has been tested

But don't buy it either. Let someone else 'test it'. I think we will be waiting a long time for Sport Z, etc. to test that one.

I think I"m the only one to have purchased it and it worked out nicely. No instrutions to install it, but you can just grab some from the web. Came with everything I needed and works well. Overall I'm happy with it and would suggest it to anyone.

Also I'll add I just used RTV instead of buying another gasket, like the Skunk2 spacer. Also its not 3/4 its 5/8 when I messured mine.

I have it and it works fine for me. No dynos or anything but one thing that I definitely noticed was the sound and no stalls. I sometimes would stall when I didn't give it enough gas but now it seems to breath better and I haven't stalled the car from first gear in about 3 months. IDK if that's a correlation or if other variables are contributing, but I am happy with it. Gains from the butt dyno hehe
