Gotta Say Thank You - Vulcan Performance

Recommended Posts

Well my last order was to order some filter from Vulcan Performance. I got a BHAF and a few fuel filters for the AirDog. Eric being the nice guy asked me "How are my intercooler boots doing?" I told him there stock boots yet and no problems. He asked if I wanted to try a set of his VP "VulCan Performance" boots... I said why not...post-2-138698180096_thumb.jpgpost-2-138698180102_thumb.jpgpost-2-138698180109_thumb.jpgpost-2-138698180116_thumb.jpgAs for installing them. Not that is a good challenge... I used a good amount of WD40 and lubed them up to slide them over the fittings. So since they are thicker boots they don't flex like the old stockers. So you got to slide them over the far enough so you slide back over the mating fitting. Once again keep them lubed up so they slide for you... I'll get a few pics of on the truck posted up soon...

You may want to use cheap hair spray instead of WD40. The hair spray will lube things up and then act as a glue to help keep them in place.

You can probably use your fancy Paris/New York hairspray too Mike. lol I just put on a BHAF too but my brother works at a parts store and got me the Wix 42790 for $34 so I didnt think anyone could beat that price. I also cut the bottom out of a 5 gallon bucket and set my filter in it so the oem airbox bolts wouldnt cut into the filter.

Use backing nuts and make the top nut flush with the threads and then it won't touch the BHAF... (Heat shield required)

Try using 'vaseline' next time. I use it all the time to put turbo, radiator, and heater hoses on. A little in the hose and a thin coating on the fitting. I also use it to hold check balls and small needle bearings in place when I use to do transmission work.

Please put a pic of that so I can see what you did. My Sister's Hubby used to work for a NAPA store those deals are done for me, but good for you! Dave Mike Prolly has a few cans of the Paris Hilton stuff hidden somewhere that he's not telling us about!:lmao:
