Induction system and adhesives

813 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?

Yes. Silicone will damage O2 sensors.

Construction adhesive - not sure. Safest bet would be epoxy or something from the parts store labeled "o2 sensor safe". High temp hot melt glue would work too. I guess it all depends on what you're doing.
As long as it stays on the *outside*, you'll be fine.
