|Step 6 - Installing The Radiator Shroud Panels|
The kit comes complete with six ABS plastic panels. These are Upper Panels 1 and 2, Left & Right Side Panels and Lower Panels 1 and 2. These panels help seal off the air passage and improve the efficiency of the Intercooler and cooling system. The increase in the frontal area improves air flow compared to the factory shrouding. The sides are now closed off, with the new panels providing better airflow through the A/C evaporator and the radiator. If the panels require any additional trimming use Tin-Snips to cut the plastic.
The two lower panels will be installed in Step 12.
6.1 Modifying The Side Bracket - The side brackets need to be modified for the side panels as shown in Photos 6-A and 6-B.
6.2 Left And Right Side Panels - The left and right side panels install in the same manner.
