Installed the intake bracket today. One of the holes on the truck had to be drilled out slightly larger to allow the threads on the bracket to line up. Not entirely hard and I’m sure there is slight variation from truck to truck.
Should be some peace of mind now. Those with the earlier version of the plastic cover should really think about updating that cover. It’s pretty clear how much more fresh air the new cover with cutout should provide. Will be interesting to see what advantage the Cobb cover will provide when they release it.
