My 351 W (1995 Lightning motor) has a TrickFlow upper intake, Anderson PowerPipe. There is a chrome TB spacer installed. The spacer doesn't have any "ports" or fittings on it that I can see. It looks like a spacer only. Can it be removed without causing any issues? My 3" cowl hood slightly touches the rubber intake hose, and if I were to remove the spacer, I would be able to move that hose over enough to the drivers' side of the engine enough to then clear the hood interference.
