Yea its very simple but it doesnt make much difference on our cars unless you have a short runner intake, the stock intake covers most of the fuel injector area

The shiny coolant reservoir sound like a good option. I thought about deleting mine myself but I heard that it does require a higher maintenance since theres no place for the coolant to expand when it gets really hot it will just overflow and leak through the cap ( to the ground like fubar said) so it requires constant looking out and fill ups

IT does make the bay so much cleaner without it though

when detailing the engine bay, can you use wd40 on all plastics and tubing? and how do u apply it, like spray it all over the bay and rub it in, or spray on cloth?

WD40 + Toothbrush for those hard to reach and troublesome areas.

I was thinking it wouldn't, considering the fuel rail is underneath the intake anyway. Oh well, it was a thought.
