    I Just Want you Opinion on these parts.

    They are Covers to hide the threaded part of the intercooler clamp.

    I always try to hide mine, yet still make them easy to get too.

    I like the idea man.

    If that's a push style, It might not stay in place which the vibration will bring it off.

    If they are threaded, then they are perfect.

    But talking about the look itself, Man they looks good.

    Any pic of the inside of the cap.

    Take a piece of rubber hose and place inside the cap. That way the bolt goes inside the hose when the cap is installed and the rubber is what's holding the cap in place and not just friction between the cap and the nut.

    ^^^^^ Like that.:):)

    That's right, it doesn't need to be threaded, if is rubber what it holds it, then that will work flawless.:thumb:

    itÂ’s got a 6mm threaded hole in the inside you just tighten it down on the nut for the clamp and it should hold itself on there being jammed against the clamp nut.


    here is a pic of the inside

    Personally think it looks to big and bulky. Looks better without it.

    Point the clamps downward/angled. Problem solved.
