      hey Tyler, that easily visible hose off the intake by the TB on your previous intake is the one where I replaced the c2 hose with the ford focus coolant hose. Mainly cuz with the c2 kit it rubbed through on the battery tray and always got yanked out under hard acceleration with stock mounts. My car finally got finished on Thursday and my parents are gonna drive it up from Texas when they come up for Thanksgiving so we definitely gotta meet up. Looking like I'm gonna be working for the Monroe O'Reily's here soon so if you don't mind the trek up I should be able to help you out with parts for whatever. Can do outside buys on stuff not carried in stock plus I still got all my parts connections from working for the speed shop in Texas. In short I'm gonna make that O'Reily's be the place to come for parts if you don't like dealing with inept kids working the counter.

      Its really quite easy... If you have a dremel even easier. Mine was on the fritz so I just used a hack saw blade, file/rasp and sand paper. Its a 20 minute job with a dremel I bet.

      Any way you lay the blade flat and go to town be careful not to go into the manifold. The nipples have little stand offs that are ready to cut. Once you get those of you sand smooth...
      BUT it ruins the finish of the plastic so I used some flat black paint and sprayed it only on those parts its a very nice match but not perfect. I'm going to try a bumper texture paint I used krylon fusion plastic paint

      It's gonna stay open for now.
      Eventually I'm going to remove it completely.

      But the real question is how? Because it runs off the serp belt and if it goes the entire set up won't turn your water pump or alt... Right? Or am I not thinking correctly

      When the pump is removed you replace the belt with a non A/C belt.
      I think that makes sense.

      But the crank drive belt, drives the ac pulley. Then the serpentine belt is driven by the ac... The crank is stepped out, the pulley assembly is not flush with the crank pulley. So you'd have nothing there.

      I know there are two belt options for the 2.5... I am thinking the belt for NONE A/C would be 07K-145-933-C which is 17.8 x 925mm

      The serp belt for A/C should be 07K-145-933-E which is 17.8 x 1063mm

      Im trying to figure this out for sure...but there not giving any codes for with or without A/C

      The car comes standard with AC. I doubt you'll find something for without AC.

      ok.. i have been looking online for a smaller bottle, so i can relocate it... not really looking to delete it.

      the plans are to relocate the coolant. Then, i'd put the fuses on the glove box, and ta da!

      at last, i'd re take a look at Melissa's bay and re-produce it, to some extent... hopefully, it will be better!
