Hamburger spacer

Any one have any experience with the torque spacer from Hamburger? I am thinking of getting one on my Air Gap Edelbrock. 355 marine application, direct drive, 650 Holley. Looking for more mid and top end.

It will help some but don't expect miracles. Spacers help tune for a little extra power but they're not ground shaking. A well built carb would make a big difference if you haven't had one made yet.

I tried a four hole spacer on top of my Air Gap and couldīnt get it to idle decent, went to an open 2incher and it made the world of difference.
