any opinions on m113k intake spacers

hey everyone, has anyone added the intake spacers that vrp and upd sell? they are claiming 18hp for 150 bucks which seems like a steal but i havent ready any reviews or seen any with them on. does anyone offer any feedback for this mod?

I havent done them yet but plan too, but i will say i have been told by 5 people they added em on the dyno an saw 10 to 14 wheel hp that pretty impressive for a spacer so take it for what its worth

I think you’re going to get very divided opinions on this matter. I’m skeptical of the claim of 18 hp, I doubt the impact on airflow is that significant. I have no hard evidence for this though, so if there are before/after dyno sheets that show a noticeable improvement it’d be cool to see them posted here. There was a thread on here a little while ago that basically universally bashed the intake spacers as a waste of money but I don’t remember many of those people having dyno evidence to back up their negative claims.

EDIT: This is the thread I was referring to. https://mbworld.org/forums/w211-amg/...pacer-kit.html

Das 16 did his own testing and saw 10 rwhp just by adding the spacers.

The intake box spacers with green filters gave me more around 7whp gain. I did see one pull with 10whp but that was only one pull. I was seeing 5-7whp increase consistently. This was with an 82mm tb.

I got them spacers from VRP with 82TB and a pair of 8 years old K&N filters. Butt dyno canít tell any difference. Just make sure your drop in filters goes on top of em spacers and NOT below. If youíre running 82TB, your SL55 Y pipe needs minor rigging to clamps down to airbox like a 3-5Ē hose clamp due to the elevated boxes. Also your engine cover wonít fit snugly.
Iíd be willing to sell mine if anyone interested!

Ordered a set of k and n 33-2181 filters; gonna pair them with these, was reading reviews on green airband bmc wasnít impressed so went with the original ones haha. Will be interesting to see if these make a difference with a stock TB

I think ruining my engine bay look would be the only thing holding me back from trying any types of spacers haha. Maybe if you did both the intake AND intake manifold spacers you could make everything fit together nicely? Might need to craft some 1/2" extensions on the engine cover clips or something?

yea I thought that too, but from the looks, it looks kinda stockish, the raising the engine covers is a good idea too, but honestly , 150 bucks for a tested as said above 12whp sounds pretty good to me haha

Das said on average 5-7 HP, 10 was the very most he saw but that was with both the risers and the green filters, which item gets the credit?!?

I think it depends on the area and roads but I have had mine for a few hundred miles and loving them so far. Werenít very oily like K&Nís. I swear I hear the slightest whine from the supercharger now at WOT close to redline as compared to before but maybe itís just placebo.

On their website, https://greenfilter.com/
You just need to enter your car info on find a filter at the top of the page. Interesting thing is that there is a filter for USA cars and Non USA cars. Looks to be the same part number though.

Also check out the thread below if you haven't already.

You spent $150 on spacer and $100 on ďK&NĒ filters, well, put those $250 and a few hundred more and you can have a larger TB that get the sure thing instead of guessing/hoping for 5-7hp. Just a thought...😀

I agree, I got the greenís to have lifetime filters. I read about them and thought it was pretty cool they have a lot of racing history and partnerships. They were $47 a piece.

I always went K&N before but heard a lot of people donít like them for the M113Kís and I wanted something different.
