Maybe I overlooked those, but at the time I believe the thinnest,in phenolic I could find was 1/2". 4150 style. The purpose for the spacer was for heat soak, not tuning. But I believe,except for upper rpm's, the four hole insulator/spacer would be preferable for street. Although with a 4-sp, I can work with the rpm's to overcome the low rpm glitch.
