Thanks for your response, I think I could get away with it too, its still soft and rounded. But like you I am a worrier, and have decided just to wait and go to the dealer tomorrow and get one. It will be 3-4 hours of work if I have to go back in. I havnt even pulled it off the intake at this point, didnt want to tear it. Is there a rim or something that it pushes onto, doesnt seem to want to come off either? Mine is an 05 by the way.
The install went well so far, took me a wial to get down to the HPOP and Oil Cooler housing but went quick after that. I went with the RCD delete w/uppipe and it went on with a perfect fit. Also replaced the IPR while I was back there, and putting on a rebilt turbo. Dealer wanted $4500 to do all this, I will complete for under $2000 hopefully. This site has been a great help for sure. No way I would have done it without learning about it on sites like this. So I joined.
Dealer said I didnt need to do studs but am still kind of worried about them too. Ran it on an 800 mile trip pulling a boat over a lot of hills and have a small amount of fluid that was dried on the outside of the degas bottle. The dealer did say the temp diff was out of spec for the egr cooler and oil cooler so I hope that is it.
