Hey White

install the 5/8 grommet onto the air tube first.

Then take some dish washing liquid soap It has to be dish washing soap on your finger and smear inside of the grommet and the outside of the fitting. The dish washing soap will dry up and not harm anything. Now hold the fitting at a tilt against the grommet and twist it on.

DO NOT USE ANY WD40 or ANY OIL just Dish Washing soap.

I hope this will help you.

Ronnie

I did just that because I realized what you said a long time ago. It helped big time. But how tight if a fit is the breather valve. I have 1 grommet left to so this. I've went through 2.

Silver piece of aluminum that fits on the crank case. The grommet allows the air tight seal and that is what's giving me fits. Intake is on though

So do I have to worry about the grommet being sucked into the engine causing huge amounts of damage. Looks a little off?

It looks OK

That is what mine looks like. No problems at all with anything sucking into the engine so far.

Thank You for the reassurance Ronnie. I'm copying your engine bay btw. How hard was it to cut the engine cover?

So easy a caveman can do it

The cover is made out of rubber and can be cut with a decent pair of scissors. You don't have to cut very much. Just enough to clear the hose if you have an automatic. If a Manual it don't need to be cut at all. ( NO HOSE)

biggest issue I had was fitting the rubber connector piece to the throttle body. Don't know how this will work if I go with a BBK throttle body

That was a pain and lining it up with te air box. So far in happy with it. The grommet is slightly damaged but I don't think it will cause damage do to it all being so tight.

The video and Airaid instructions suck

If you install the connector onto the throttle body first it is way way much easier to install the air tube. I'm thinking that on the Video at AM they probably pre-installed that setup so much it was stretched out enough to slip on that easy. Ain't no way it goes on like that the first time.

Yes, That would soften the rubber

I had no trouble at all when I put the coupler on the Throttle body first. I'm sure a blow dryer would have done the trick but I just didn't think of it. I sure did not want to use any soap or anything that close to the throttle body.
