Hey everyone,

So i was cleaning my car today and did the engine bay as well and noticed that my Big Bully intake has burned thru my underhood pad.

When i installed it, i made sure that it was as low as could be and the filter is next to near the end of the tube as can be.

Every now and again when i get on my car i hear a vibration noise under the hood and now just realized that it was my intake that was doing it.

Anyone else have his happen or noticed it. I have a 2.7 in my car, maybe others are different...?

Ill post a picture in the AM.

Thoughts.?

I hope that i don't need to worry about any sort of fire hazard.

It's most likely vibrations, not heat, causing it. I had the same problem with my hood hitting my Mopar CAI, and it vibrated enough to actually start rubbing away at both the metal intake tube and fiberglass hood.

I got some thick 3M insulation tape and stuck it in place where it was rubbing it took care of that problem. Then I just add replacing it to my maintenance list along with emptying the catch can.
