    K&N intake, rust
    Anyone have any tips on breaking the front banjo bolt loose?? I have been giving it HELL! I have tried using a flare nut wrench with no luck and believe it or not managed to slightly strip the banjo bolt at every corner... I gave up with that and moved on to vice grips. I had a good strong grip on the SOB and still nothing. I am a 200lb dude and was giving it absolutely all I had and nothing. I have PB blasted it numerous times... My brother recommended using a hammer once or twice to try and break rust seal.

    BTW I live just south of Pittsburgh so I am in the rust zone, the filter itself has rust on that side.

    I am afraid I might just have to replace that section fuel line all together to get a new filter on there.

    As always thanks for the suggestions!
