CFM-Tech Power Plate for 4.3/5.0/5.7 GM Tbi w Single Air Cleaner Stud Part# PP-100

This is the email I sent to CFM-Tech after installing their "Power Plate"

Just wanted to let you know that TBI spacer was NOT easy to install. The throttle cable no longer fit and had to be lengthened with some hillbilly ingenuity, the air cleaner housing cold air intake no longer fit and I had to cut off the end with a hack saw, the valve cover breather hose no longer fits and is now hanging off until I figure out what to do with it. The metal tube that runs from the master cylinder to the intake manifold no longer fits because I had to put the fuel lines on top of it to accommodate the extra distance required by the spacer. And the metal coated paper tube running from the exhaust manifold to the air intake had to be lengthened with 2 inches of metal cut from a beer can.

My car is completely stock so why don't you guys just include the proper parts in the kit to make it fit correctly???

If I had to do it over again I probably wouldn't.
