Ok I'm just doing mine and I have a question: the bolt that holds the air hat on isn't tall enough for the Durango's taller hat. That being said, how did you remedy that?

I bought a threaded rod from ACE hardware, bent it into an S shape to make it line up in the middle of the throttle body. Test fitted with the new airhat, then trimmed off the excess with a dremmel.

I'll take some pictures of the trimmed metal thing that holds the stud on mine. I cut it very thin when I ported the TB and used a longer stud.

Ok here is how I trimmed the TB stud holder or what ever you would want to call it. I put some washers under it for reasons I can't remember.

Thanks. I spent more time sanding and polishing the one for my first ZJ. Accidentally went past the plates and had to make new ones out of a brass door kick from home depot.

Polka,
Did you ever resolve the hood rubbing problem? If I lost the resolution in the thread I am sorry.

Use some washers to "heighten" your hood at the hinges.
