I don't think I saw it mentioned, but you can lower the position that your wiper blades sit to give it a sleeker look

Ditto....I spent alot of time in the stickies reading....then I started spending money... Then I learned about bang for the buck... I learned a few hard lessons on spending or actually wasting my money. Lessons learned hard are remembered tho

Yes this is another free and easy thing to do. You can lower the position of the blades so you can see more of the hood. It's real noticeable if you have a hood scoop or cowl hood. The wipers still clean plenty of the windshield and they won't get damaged sitting lower on the windshield.

I don't understand how you can lower them. And what's the point of lowering them? Just a slightly sleeker look?

No, it's so easy, pull the blade so it's upright, pull the little notch out and pull the entire assembly straight up then put it back on a little but more counter clock wise then put the blade down again, super easy... Here is a pic of the notch

We are all here to help each other, and you should know that in the real world, some people are a bit more abrasive than others.

I'm looking to remove mine as well (heck, you can't beat free right?) but know next to nothing about working around under a hood except for fluids.... Was wondering if you had done it that you could maybe snap a pic or too and show me where to start....

No lil bro I wasn't trying to be mean. I am a little abrasive sometimes. I am glad we got young uns like you to keep this hobby of ours going. And just like joshy ask questions. That's what these forums are for and there are many very knowledgeable guys who are happy to answer them. Sorry if I came off like a dick

Unscrew the big round airbox from the fender and it looks like a snorkel attached to it.

No. Lol. I couldn't find out what to do. I don't know anything either.

The are only one or two bolts holding the airbox on, took me less than 5 minutes to do it. I saw no difference, so I drove it for awhile and put it back on and drove some more, nothing. Most gains noticed will be in ones head.....

Bbk has a questionable track record. I bought accufab ans have no complaints. Proffesional products is good too. K 78mm is waaaaaay to big as it will affect the velocity of the incoming air charge. If you are naturally aspirated 70mm is perfect.
