    Yes. That front bracket is a major pain in the ass.

    Take a zip tie and thread it thru one of the bolt holes, wrap it around the power filter tube, pass it back thru the other hole and zip it up. It holds the power filter tube very secure and if you ever need to pull your supercharger the tube just rotates out of the way.

    It's kind of a tight spot to get a pic.

    Just picture a zip tie wrapped around the tube... thats how it will look

    Should I change to the Denso 27 plugs with this mod? I am running the Denso 24 plugs now. I also did a Riva grate, stock 14-19 Solas, NOPAS, vent fans, extended the intake further forward, 2 degree wedge, and am trying a R&D nozzle. Ride plate holes are filled and its all sanded pretty straight.... Testing next weekend in Havasu!!!

    Nah, the 24's will do fine for your setup. Let us know how she runs after the weekend.

    I'm going to bring along a temp guage to check the engine compartment temps with and without the fan. Temp there should be well over 100 so any little bit helps. I tried the thermal wrap too....
