Almost done with chargepipe install, have questions - need help

I have 4 questions below.I would really appreciate if someone could answer asap so I can drive my car and test it out!

1. There is a small gap, it doesn't line up perfect from the charge pipe to the throttle body, however the metal hose pin seems to be all the way in, is this a problem?





2. How tight should these clamps be, I don't want to make them too tight that they crack the plastic or something..



3. What is this for?



4. Do I unplug the tube circled on the left into the engine and plug the tube from the BOV into where this tube is?

The gap looks slightly larger than it should. There will be a small gap but yours looks as if the chargepipe isn't all the way on the throttle body.





2. How tight should these clamps be, I don't want to make them too tight that they crack the plastic or something..

They should be snug just don't over tighten them and strip the clamp.



3. What is this for?

I didn't use mine.



4. Do I unplug the tube circled on the left into the engine and plug the tube from the BOV into where this tube is?

Yes. Use the hose connected to your bov and plug that into where the OEM hose is.


Do a few idle revs past 4k to make sure it sounds right before driving on it.

I definitely will, but what about question 2, 3, and 4?
