Part 2

I have sealed up the intake which turned out really good. I used a high resistant thermal insulation rubber tape and a caulk gun.The insulation tape is used in plumbing to wrap heated pipes.

These are the things I bought at Home Depot, except for the pot pie - my dinner

Turned out all I needed was the caulk gun, the insulation rubber tape, and of course my pot pie to eat.

I used the caulk gun on the turbo external part of the inlet that is inserted into the air box. After it has hardened I will cut the residue.

Next I started to seal up the air box cover with the insulation tape and the top part of the box

All is ready tomorrow for installing right after I dyno with the stock intake. After installing I will be heading out the Palm Beach International Race Way for some test runs and for the DME to adapt.
