this may be a stupid question, but is there a spacer that we could run between the intake manifold and the exhaust manifold? may be a runner from a different vq series motor? should give a good bump in torque, but it would most likely raise the intake manifold up a bit, to the point where a hood spacer would be needed...(yuck)

You're thinking VQ35DE.

To get any real effect from a throttle body spacer, it'd have to be about a metre (3 ft.) long. If it was that easy to "bump up the torque" don't you think manufacturers would put throttle body spacers on all their engines?

Spacers used to have a use back when carbs were popular becuase it gave the air/fuel mixture more time to mix before it entered into the combustion chamber; now with fuel injection and direct injection that reasoning is no longer there.

Jesus, half a second is a huuuge difference. That's like a bus length in the quarter mile. And a half-second is a huge seat-of-the-pants difference. Drive a 13.7 car, and then drive a 13.2 car - the acceleration difference is remarkable - I own the 13.7 car, and used to own the 13.2 car - it's night and day. Okay, I'll get off my rant.

Yeah no kidding. Here's what a couple of tenths in the 1/8th looks like so you imagine what a full 1/2 second looks like.
