    I love an easy solution. I was thinking electrical tape.

    Damn guys. And here I am with a length of flexible metal dryer vent ducttaped to my existing pickup tube run to and around my exhaust manifold three times. Which works, by the way. Works quite well.

    I have it written up...just need a few more pics. Hopefully it it will be this weekend...but we just adopted a kitten so my house is a little crazy at the moment.

    Sorry...I got side-tracked on the TPMS stuff.

    I will take some final photos over the weekend. I have to remove it because I'm taking my car in next week for the no heat on passenger side problem that you discovered. I could probably live with it, but if I can get my heater core replaced under warranty, I'm going to try for it. The list price on a Mitsubishi heater core is over $600! With labor that job is probably $1200+. I am literally about 500 miles from going out of my bumper-to-bumper warranty.

    Yeah, I'd highly recommend having someone else do the job!

    Looking forward to pics.
