Not if you're not careful. It's easy for that shit to slip and hit against the paint nice and hard. Don't ask me how I know *shudders*
I need some paint match and clear coat.

Personal opinion, obviously.
Have steeda. Agreed. (Although that's the only one I've used obviously. But yes I like the sound)

Yup, gives you a decent amount of room.

1 push-pin was no match for me, but 3 push-pins... I don't know if I would be able to do it lol
Finally took it out just now. I got the centre pin and the right pin fully out with a flathead but ended up ripping out the one on the left because it was being stubborn. Only managed to recover the top half of one of the pins.

Still not sure what this snorkel delete actually does. Is there any advantage if running CAI. I have Steeda CAI, Magnaflow catback and Tom's Tune. Runs good. Just don't understand the delete theory.
