What's the best way to get that thing off of an explorer lower? I see it's got some kind of rivets, but might need to reuse them when I put it back on, so don't want to grind them off...

Once you take those rivets out you cant really fully trust them to work a second time. They have a shaft that has like a serrated twist and this bites into the aluminum upon first install. I would tap the holes and use bolts with loctite instead of reusing those rivets

Make sure you get your information from the internet gurus that haven't built SHIT, they did sleep at Holiday Inn last night, and we have a few of those gurus right here on this forum. Smiley

OK, appreciate it. There's some greasy sludge on the bottom of the intake I want to fully clean off, and put a full length shield under it.
