i used to have those on my 940T, can't remember if i noticed much of a difference so i must have been underwhelmed by them. Maybe it is different in a tight midengine compartment?
Point is, those studs still provide a heat conducting metal bridge between head and intake manifold. So even if you install those spacers your intake manifold will still heat up.
