Re: new boredom results

Does that new oil cap help in getting it off easier? I have the damn-dest time trying to remove the oem unit! Besides the silly "logo", looks good.

I put a ricer breather on mine as well (have a bunch I got for practically nothing), except I attached it to the strut brace and ran 1/2" (iirc) vacuum tubing.

Re: new boredom results

Ouch! Reminds me of cleaning my bronco's wipers when they were up once!

I imagine it's clearcoated? If you take some fine scotchbrite (even ultra fine grey) and go around it to break the edge of circumference, you think that would help? Problem is if it's coated, would have to re-do, or just take it off and polish/keep waxing it to avoid oxidation...

No fun getting sliced or having to worry about it! Otherwise, looks like a good addition and 100X better than the OEM.

Re: new boredom results

Re: new boredom results

Yeah, I see how that may happen (possible)...Personally, I'd break the bottom edge with a fillet or even a small chamfer, just to avoid it in the future. Easy way to tell if it's clearcoated (if you're not sure) is put some metal polish on the bottom side and rub a little...no black, coated...black and it's mill finish. (I say bottom so you don't have one little shiny spot, if you didn't want to do the whole thing )

Re: new boredom results

Breather filters are illegal in California. Just put the tube back on before you have to get a smog check, Brad!

Re: new boredom results

Yeah, they don't even let you run without the factory air filter box (except CARB approved 'kits') here in Commifornia...You could burn 100% clean exhaust and they'd still fail you...

I just kept all my oem stuff in a box(es) and when the time comes, just pop that back on. Hassle, but not like having to replace exhaust manifolds or something (and probaby why I'd never be able to have headers here )
