Re: Help!!!!

well I got the screw off under the car, now the vent hose inside diameter is too small to fit onto the jeeps part. Anyone else have to make the diamter bigger on the hose to fit, or stretch it?

Re: Help!!!!

Happy you got the bolt off. Sorry that I wasn't on here sooner.

Umm...its a snug/tight fit. It almost doesn't want to go over thats how tight it is.

Re: Help!!!!

well i got it installed and it sounds pretty good. Yea it is a tight fit. I used a tool to stretch out the vent hose to make it wider and warmed it up, then it fit on. Nothing like working on your jeep in 20 degree weather. Luckily i was in a garage but still cold. I also cleaned out the engine bay where the stock intake was because it was filthy and didnt want to dirty the new intake. i snapped two quick pics of it with my cell phone. here they are.

Re: Help!!!!

Looks pretty good!! Congrats on the successful install!

Might wanna get a recharge kit tho. The filter looks like it might need some oil...
