Perc fan and fuel pipe help?
« on: 19:15, Thu 08 December 2011 »
Hey people
just had my perc fan off to clean it up, make it look bit nicer :)
My question is when fitting back on was planning on rooting the fuel pipe through it like its ment to be (i think ) is this a bad idea as i hear stories about them setting alight ? It is fused , at the moment the fuel pipe is rooted through some water hose or somethin and it looks crap!
Thanks

You could fit it to keep the OE look, just don't plug it in.

ive never had one fitted to notice the difference, i think it will take a bit longer for u to start ur car, but its not much i dont think, and u might have a nice car that starts fine on hot starts, i seem to get lucky with my raider  8)
