Four hole spacers usually improve torque while open spacers can improve higher rpm performance. Some motors like them, some don't mind one way or another. The only way to know is to try it with and without either on the track or the dyno.

Your best gain will be from using a HVH Super Sucker. Worth about 1 to 2 tenths.

Plastic stop heat transfer to the carb body a little better.

I will say this much - I've never put on a carb spacer and lost ET.

X2. I've seen claims of anything from .10-.40 improvements, but have never actually seen much more than a tenth in back-to-back track testing. Testing or dyno work is the only true way to find out what spacer your engine combo will like...

Got an hvh super sucker on mine too. Bought a new aluminum one since when I built my new motor I found the inside of the plastic one was hangin on by a thread (cpl of lil flash fires from alky tryin to start my burnout without enough heat in the motor) didn't know it at the time bcuz alky burns clear. I suggest the aluminum one for the possibility of what almost happened to me could happen to anyone. Gas or alky! As for benefits- I have no clue cuz I've never ran without it but like "excelerater" said- it does look cool! Lol! And as "supe" said-he's never put one on and lost E.T
