TVS owners with phenolic spacers.

Hey guys I just wanted to know what you did with one of the sensors behind the TVS on the passenger side. I installed my Phenolic spacer today and the install was fine however I notice that the TVS used to hold down a sensor that sits right under the coolant hose. Now I installed the spacer the TVS sits higher and no longer holds that sensor down. I can hear it leaking air on idle and when I move it around the idle gets rough. My question is what did you guys do to combat this problem.

When I modified my MAP sensor I made it a groove so that the bolt could hold down the tab from the side. So when I put my spacer on I didn't have to mess with it at all.

Thx infra.

My problem is the bolt from the blower isn't even touching the sensor its really close but not close enough to hold down that sensor. Before I put the spacer on it was fine, the TVS held it in place.

I'm talking about the bolt that originally held the map sensor down. I cut a little groove in the plastic on the tab when I ground it down and then turned it enough so it would clear the TVS but still be able to have contact with part of the bolt to be held down. Ill see I if I can get a pic tomorrow.

Could also try a very thin washer so you can still get some thread in the hole but expand the surface area of the downward clamping force of the bolt head. That might work.

Are you talking of the one between the intake manifold and the head? If so, that should not change the way the blower sits on the intake manifold at all. Unless you got a custom one for between the blower and intake manifold, then the supercharger should sit no different. Mine does not.

Thx infra I cut piece of rubber and wedged it in between the blower bolt and the map sensor. Its holding it down right now but I'm thinking maybe I should put RTV around the sensor so that it doesn't leak air and of course still use the rubber to hold it down in place.

Huh? you got me lost lol I bought the zzp phenolic spacer and installed it the way it was supposed to via ss.net how to.

The phenolic spacer and gaskets are in between the head and the intake manifold.
