    We have the prototypes of the 1" version of the VMax iceolator we want to test to see if there are gains to be had above the current one we offer. Anyone in the west-central FL area (sarasota to Tampa) that has a few hours. We will give you free dyno baseline runs so we can do before and after tests. 3 for an average before the spacer then 3 after.

    Not yet.....last week was spent moving into the new facility. Still need someone for testing.

    Price is the same do go for it and if for some reason you want the 3/8" instead I'll exchange at no additional cost.

    I have a 2012 coupe 3.6 and work in Tampa. Wouldn't mind helping you out. The car has aftermarket wheels on it so I don't know if it would throw off your dyno numbers.

    The 2012 and up has a composit intake manifod now from GM that has addressed the heat soak issue thus the increased HP, but we have some other goodies coming for the 2012 & up DI so stay tuned.

    Thanks!

    The 2012s have a lot more improvements including bigger valves, different exhaust etc. They ”only” picked up 14hp with all the improvements including a composite intake (to save weight and probably cheaper to make).

    Update!

    We spent 1/2 the dayon the dyno and the 1"version did show small gains in TQ in the lower rpm range (2-3 rwtq), but LOST 14 rwhp above 5800....so allthough there is demand for these and we are making them, the 3/8" is by far the best and no fitment issues like we encountered with the 1".
