Yea, it works in te reverse. Header wrap on headers keeps heat in the headers...wrap something that pulls cold air in it will hold cold air in but there are no real noticeable differences. He did it to solve the rubbing issue.

im not twincharged.
the wrap is simply there to prolong the life of the intake itself. the k&n intakes rest on the ecm and the brake lines on the 07's. they rub into the intake itself. nothing more.

^^^^Click on the "gallery" script at the top of the page ^^^^

Then click on "upload" in the middle of that page.

You can upload up to 5 pictures at one time if they are not too large.

Once you finish all the inputs hit submit.

Then when the photos appear click on each one, copy and paste the "IMG" script at the bottom of that page, and paste that script to yout post. Edit and paste as often as necessary to get all the photos you want in your post.

Why is it you have an oil return line feeding into the oil fill cap? Turbo oil return line???
