Installed aftermarket intake elbow..

Got the flo pro intake elbow installed, that was a breeze! It also frees up alot of room in that area. I'm left with 3 big ugly connectors, I zip tied them all up nicely, but the look just isn't cuttin it for me. Can these plugs be cut? It's never
Going stock again! Or is there a good way to wrap this in split tube or something?

I believe he is referring to these plugs.

Thanks Blake....

Without seeing them I was trying to think if there's any way to route them so they're under something or maybe unwrapping them and then re-wrapping them so they sit under the wire loom. I haven't done my intake elbow yet but it's on the list to do along with the CA tube.

I was looking at them the other night and may try to hide them right behind and low to the elbow. At least I won't see them easily there.

If you wrap them in black electrical tape, it might help them blend in and "disappear."


It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.

Mine are just taped up and tucked away. I wouldnt cut them! If and when you sell the truck and the new owner has to go back to stock for what ever reason, it will be up **** creek with out a paddle. Or if you ever get emissions testing in your area, you will be screwed.

True about cutting them.. I think I'll just get sum split tubing that's big enough and just wrap them with that. But here's a pic.
