    I believe a couple of the east coast guys did give this a shot. The price is ok for what it is, I doubt it is any better than the Motordyne offerings.

    I do prefer the plastic spacer provided with the MD kit to prevent from overtightening the 6 middle bolts.

    Those 6 plastic spacers? So... that's what they're for... and I thought people were crazy for snapping bolts... Tony @ MD next-day-air'd me a brand new set of 6 because I told him I lost 1 and wanted 2... for free... all I had to give him was my address and my request for 2, ended up with 6 brand new ones... :err:

    By far best customer service I've ever had. Ever. Seriously. Evvvvaaarrrr.

    Yep, they are spacers to make sure you don't crack the plenum grooves from overtighting it. I've seen it happen, and had the plenum welded to repair it.

    I have a broken bolt on one of my outer bolts...but so far i havent heard any sounds of leakage or performance losses...ill wait till i can get an extractor to get a new bolt from tony.

    The outer bolts are pretty standard bolts. Any 6mm bolt should be ok, just get the right length and it should be fine.

    You have to be careful with some of the 6mm bolts. Some have a better density or more tensile strength is what I mean. Over torquing can still snap the heads off the bolts. I know quit a few of us have done it in the past. overall AAM should be a good spacer. The MD spacers have gaskets already adhered on both side and will probably seal with out a hitch.
