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 just zip tied mine as well. Probably will just leave them myself.

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."

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.
