    Quick question!!!

    I just went out to put my heatshield on after i trimed it to fit my new dp.
    I noticed that the hose next to it had a hole burnt threw it, and its not connected to anything. If it is not connected can i just trim it.

    Here are some pics

    I think I recall that the hose you have pictured has something to do with the ac. I don't know for sure but at least I gave you the bump!

    Its just the AC drain pipe... when you run your AC on a hot day, it creates condensation, the condesation drains out of that pipe... It would be safe to say you could trim it. All I did with mine was place it on the "shelf" that you have it on in your second picture. Doing that got it far enough away from the downpipe so it wouldn't burn.

    Ok thanks for the help guys. So do you think that could explain that when i had the ac on external air i would smell something burning?

    If it smelt like rubber burning, then yes.
