i just need the two silver terminals that connect to the positive posts. at least on mine there are multiple wires that go to a bolt end of terminal.

I will get a pic in the morning im on my way to work. then i will have to figure out how to post pics on there.

It is just a big plastic trim piece. I removed mine a long time.

Oh and please refrain from using the term stealer ship.

You just cut the wires and put new connectors on them. Then you can use any battery terminal from any parts store.

Sounds like the snorkle from the factory intake. Somebody changed to a K&N and didn't remove all of the factory intake. I would also get that K&N out of there before it is to late.

K&N filters(whether not oiled right by the user or just bad in general) have been known to dust turbos... .get a 6637.
