    throttle body bypass? smooth bellows problem

    I recently purchased the throttle body bypass kit from ebay! It installed fine but when i installed the slp smooth bellows back on the throttle body bypass grinds on the serpentine belt. Does anyone else have this problem and how can i get around it?

    Hmm, try rotating the hoses, or cutting the abit shorter to take out the slack, or get a bit of stailess hard line and ditch the hose fittings that you got ripped off on and custom make one.

    Get a new longer hose and pass it over the TB and tie it down there nice and neat with stainlessteel wire or something that would make it nice, but what do I know since I don't have one myself, just some advice as i'm looking to the engine.

    If going with tie wraps get the black UV stable ones they will last longer and not become brittle.

    Tie wraps and duct tape are the only two things that can save the universe. They will be fine.
