question about blue spring upgrade...

Good morning, Im getting the courage up to tackle the blue spring upgrade. What I have found is you can buy the "kit" with or with out a new cover/housing that just bolts up on the side.
So question is,is the extra cost of the new housing justified? Thanks
Sorry if this has been covered a hundred times....but I just need to know once!

Thats what I have found. You can order the one that you did for around $30. Or you can order the one's with the cover for around $60. Just trying to figure out,1) is it something that warps or breaks easly? 2) is the 30 extra reeley worth it....

X2 for no need for buying the cover. Just undo the intercooler pipe from the intake elbow and rotate it out of the way then use a rope to pull the rad hose a little out of the way, then undo the #27 Torx screws and pull back the cover enough to pull out the spring. I've seen a number of guys kink their fuel lines trying to take them off which is unnecessary.

I bought the cover for mine only because mine had 305,000 miles on it when I replaced it... I got the cover just cause it seemed like a good thing to do.
