I replaced mine on my upper intercooler pipe tonight. I had a huge tear in the one I made out of the stock pipe. It was a damn tight fit.. I have a hard pipe installed with my HKS SSbov on it. I need to slide the upper one about another inch..How do I do this? I did get the clamps on it but just barely. It is on the very edge of the coupler. I tried but there has to be a way to make them slide?????HELP

TIA

Jeff

YES.... that is exactly it. It is the upper side that I need to slide some.

are you using the greddy piping and greddy couplers??? wonder if you can get more play by adjusting pipes 2 or 3 also (inside the fender).

I got my ouplers through Dusty but they are not Greddy, I have one of them that came with my hardpipe and its much thinner and flexable than what I now have. I wanted black instead of something colorful and these are fairley thick. I did get them on. The lower one I had no problems with. Yes If I new how to play or even get to the lower pipes this would have been no problem. I had to slide that right one in the pic almost all the way onto the hardpipe itself to get the pipe into place and I cannot slide it back up any now?????

somebody has to know how to slide this coupler now that I have it on and it wont seem to budge. Tomorrow will be the first time to drive it since I installed the coupler. I am curious to see if I got enough of it on to hold for any length of time.

spraying WD-40 on the inside of the couplers allows you to move the piping easier. sliding the piping should allow you enough room to get the coupler attached good.

you could try using wd40, or, you could try heating them up with either a blow dryer or by immersing them in arm water, so that they stretch easier...

Well I tried it again after driving for a while and heating everything up. I did get it to move about 1/4 inch. It seems to be holding fine now. I will probably take it back and hook back up to the bong and see if it is leaking anywhere.
