I am interested in a thermostat spacer, but I'm not paying FM price for one!!1!!1YES

Highroller-I think you have a decent product, it looks exactly like what I would need/want in order to retain my heater core. So figure out a price and if it's good, more people will jump on this.

I'm interested. I would love to kit a full KIT for the coolant reroute, but I'm sure you'll have no problem selling just the spacers.

To buy the JR spacer from Moss online, go to the page below and enter part number 051-046. It will add the spacer to your cart.

The part number search on the home page does not work for this part, must go to the page above. I posted this info on M.net a week ago and the 323 GTX guy added the link. Yay, for the Internets!

Highroller101, I am interested in one of your spacers too, but the first price given was more than I'd be willing to pay.

Machined for thermostat yes... O-ring? where and why 'splain please.

o-ringing typically creates a better seal than a gasket, that is why it is commonly used in high performance applications, sometimes even on the head. I don't think it is necessary for a t-stat, but it won't hurt. I say leave it alone to keep cost down.

The Tstat housing I purchased from turbo tim has a rubber o-ring that fits around the tstat, Im sure he can chime in and tell you where you can get them for cheap. it helps because I didnt realize there was a groove in the gasket and it was leaking because of it.

I steel O-ringed my head to accomedate 18psi of boost and it is wonderful! no need to worry about a head gasket any time soon!

I'd be interested in this if it were c'bored on one side for a thermostat. And of course if it were cheap enough to make me not want to make another with a hole saw and a hand drill.

I only had one extra that I machined for me. You can get them cheaper at Jegs. Search for Meziere thermostat housing.

Once I find out if I am going to make the spacers then I can give a time frame and cost. If I am not going to make the spacers I will get a quote from a guy that I give out some of my work to when business gets too busy. Price is coming soon. Like everything else, the more people I can get to buy one, the less its going to be. PS your not getting a cheap POS either. Your getting a High quality ISO 9000/9001 AS9000 certified piece.

I would be interested in one too, with the t-stat groove. Please add me to the list. I was planning on making one, but this would one less thing to fabricate.
