    Re: Free Intake Mod

    Just pulled out those paper towel roll tubes from my intake.


    Question, does anyone leave off their engine cover and all the covers around the engine and is this alright to do, do those covers help disperse heat. Or am I asking for trouble by keeping these off.

    I have all the covers removed and have not noticed any increase in oil temp.

    They retain heat if anything- I have had mine off for over 9 months.

    I have all the covers off mine. But, I put a D3 1.5 package on it, soon after I bought it new in 08. It does look purty!

    Right, mine were off the 2nd day. Why would they cover up such a work of art?... plus I think it stays cleaner with the covers off.
