Induction system and adhesives

820 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  eldorado1
I have a simple question. I know years ago there was a big concern with using any kind of silicone in or around the induction system, as it caused harm to sensors.

I would like to use glue on something for my custom Volant install and was wondering if I have to be cautious of this. It would not be silicone, probably construction adhesive.

Will this hurt anything?

Ok on the Volant CAI the front of it which mates to the radiator support is a huge rectangle. Not very efficient in my eyes. So I have crafted a piece of 1" think foil faces foam insulation board to fit nicely in that rectangle. Then I'm going to cut a 3" hole through it and somewhat mimic the factory snorkel tube.

I just want something to seal the foam-board to the box and the tube to the foam-board. I don't plan on installing it until the adhesive is dry, if that makes a difference.
