Sent from my Pixel XL using TapatalkHas anyone installed this without using the rivet nut hardware? I'm not mechanically inclined and even if it is easy enough to figure out the idea of doing something irreversible makes me cringe. I prefer to use the fabric in the summer.
Does anyone have experience trying this with the stock hardware?
Which is fine, I understand that there is no way to design something with everyone else's stuff in mind, my issue is that I keep running into situations where my other items, specifically Mishimoto products, don't fall into the "most".Works with many aftermarket upgrades. Will fit many larger charge pipes. (Will NOT work with Fumoto oil valve, without modification)
So I take it you're using aftermarket IC pipes? Is this correct? Can you please confirm?.
Thought I'd share this for anyone running across this thread doing research on this upgrade.

I’ve got both the hot and cold side Mishimoto pipesSo I take it you're using aftermarket IC pipes? Is this correct? Can you please confirm?
For those looking for a less expensive tool that will get this job done and do others, Harbor Freight sells this set for $19.99:It is expensive depending on your needs. It's a whole kit with tips for various size nuts, a big selection of nuts, etc. It's about 70 bucks on Amazon.
It is a great tool and I know I will use it for other things. BUT it definitely is not necessary.
There are a ton of DIY videos of how to make your own tool with a threaded bolt/washers and nuts.
Those solutions are a little less elegant and slower to use, but theywork. Hell they might even be easier unless you can lift your car up high enough given the way the Astro tool's arms have to move to set the nut.
Last I heard they were still looking for someone local to them with an rs so they can mock it up, the hold up is that they don't have an rs and haven't found any volunteers yet. But this was almost a month ago, maybe they've found one since thenOMG yes please, any updates of when they plan to release?
