    My questions are - Should I go an buy a Dremel and cut the dam brack off or what tools should I use?

    Should I even bother using the heat shield I don't feel like drilling holes all over the engine bay.

    What is the best place to relocate the horn?

    Thanks!
    I remember having a problem with it. I would cut back a bit.

    Or just get an aFe CAI that fits without issues? No carbon coolness but no fuss either. At least I don't recall any issue when I installed mine.
