Induction system and adhesives

814 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?

I take it your referring to the MAF/IAT sensors? Silicone will screw up the MAF sensor if you get it on there. You can use silicone spray to lube gaskets and what not in the intake system as long as it doesn't get into the MAF sensor. Other than that, I would worry too much about it. You don't really need a whole lot to get stuff to slide around easily.
