The plasic ones (P2R and the hondata heat shield) help to stop heat transfer from the head to the IM. Some will argue it helps.

i find it negligable.

IMO its not worth the fight to get your IM off to put one on. and its a ***** to get off too.

Yeah on my DSM, almost nobody gives a crap about those things, of course it easier to get horsepower out of a 4g63 than a k20.

I would guess that putting that spacer on may add like one extra horsepower if you use it with a CAI, but you can get the same gains from loosing like 60lbs from you or your car, so you decide.
