Hey,

I installed my TK cai the other day and didnt really like the way the coolant tubes sat/looked


I looked around for some kind of cover/loom but couldnt find anything, that is untill I found a pump hose/large vacuum hose


Cut it to length then down the middle



Then slid it on



Dont know if im completely sold on it but for $10 iv got time to think about it :)

Yea looks out of place and vacuum-esque lol but to each his own.

And that's not rly a CAI addition. Actually has nothing to do with the CAI lol

Is it going to stand up to the heat?

dunno, time will tell. if they were on the back of the engine I would guess no.
Im hoping the colour will fade a bit

Ahhh they just mad they didn't think of it! lol

I think it looks pretty good for $10

now black stainless braided hoses with anodized aluminum ends would be the shiz nit...but that costs a little more than $10...right

Just grab those clear tubes if you want to make it look awesome. Can sit and watch the coolant flow through the hoses. More than 10 dollars of course though. :)

Neat idea lol, so far it doesnt look like it gets hot enough up front to affect them negitivly

If you like it, that's your opinion, but in my own opinion it looks kinda sloppy and out of place.
