JHM Intake Spacers (8mm thick) for C6-S6 and D3-S8 FSI V10
PROUDLY MADE IN THE U.S.A.
Introducing the JHM Intake Spacers for the C6-S6 and D3-S8 V10 FSI. They are 8mm thick and CNC machined out of high quality materials.
Intake Spacers help bring your intake temperatures down by insulating the intake manifold from the heat coming from the cylinder heads due to combustion. With a cooler intake manifold, you create a cooler and denser intake charge which helps add more torque and horsepower, gear after gear! The intake spacers also increase the length of your V10's intake runners which creates more torque.
With our in-house testing, we found gains everywhere throughout the RPM range. The biggest gains were from 5000 to 7000 rpm, with the second best area of gains occurring from 4200 to 6500 rpm. (We identify these gains by analyzing the data from our data-logging and performing acceleration rate calculations in 3rd gear.) The BEST advantage for these intake spacers is that we saw that the car didn't slow down after repeated pulls due to an extremely heat soaked intake manifold bringing the intake temperatures up. Bottom line, the longer we beat on our in-house S8, the better it performed when compared to tests without the intake spacers.
These spacers are a great modification for the money, especially on the naturally aspirated (all-motor) V10 FSI engines where every little gain counts!
PARTS INCLUDED: The JHM V10 FSI Intake Manifold Spacer Kit will include the following parts:
2x- JHM Intake Spacers (1 for each side of the intake)
2x- OEM Intake gaskets (1 for the each of the top sides of the spacers that mate to the intake manifold.) On lower mileage cars you can reuse the stock gasket between the spacer and the cylinder head. If you're unsure of the condition of your OEM gaskets, select the option below for a second pair of gaskets.
- 12x Zinc plated, grade 8.8 socket head bolts, that are longer to accommodate the spacer (6 for each side of the intake)
- 12x Washers for the supplied longer bolts (6 for each side of the intake)
-If you need additional gaskets, search SKUs: OEM-07L133073E and OEM-07L133074B
-JHM Oil Separator Heater Bypass Kit: Yes, I want one and will add SKU: JHM-4E0121103S to my cart. This helps keep the intake temperatures even lower and takes very little time (less than 5 minutes) to install with the intake manifold removed. NOTE: Not recommended for extremely cold climates. Go back one section to add this to your cart.
-JHM Carbon Cleaning Tool Kit and Solution. During the installation of JHM Intake Spacers is the optimal time to perform a carbon cleaning, as you will have the manifold off and have the valve pockets exposed. Go back one section to add these to your cart.
The installation of these intake spacers requires the same labor as a carbon cleaning. So if you're getting a carbon clean performed to bring back top end horsepower on your S6 or S8, why not install our JHM Intake Spacers and add some torque too?! In addition to just removing the intake manifold for a carbon clean, the intake spacers require you to flex and move up the high pressure fuel line distributor by about 10mm (total width of the spacer plus an additional compressed gasket). You'll also need to adjust the fuel lines since the manifold will be sitting about 10mm higher than stock. It is recommended that you remove the port separators in the cylinder intake ports when adding the intake spacers, as the pocket created will generate tumbling and can induce unwanted engine characteristics.
You will also want to remove wiring harness bracket from the studs on the driver side head. You can secure the wires with a zip tie so they stay out of the way of the flap arms. This is because the brackets can interfere with your flap arms and give you the following codes:
008196 - Intake Manifold Flap; Bank 1 P2004 - 002 - Stuck Open - MIL ON
008197 - Intake Manifold Flap; Bank 2 P2005 - 002 - Stuck Open - MIL ON

- Perfect fit, must have!
I had great expectations from JHM for their quality parts, and they exceeded it with these spacers. The consistancy in the intake temp is noticeable after long "spirited" drives. The included hardware is outstanding quality too.
I would highly recommend this to any C6/D3 V10 owner! 3/5 stars, wouldn't change a thing (Posted on 1/11/2021)
