Hey guys i recently installed a steeda intake tube and noticed that there is a rather large i say 14mm bolt right above the turbo inlet. It looks like it holds a ground wire to the cylinder head. Its rubbing against my intake pipe and im wondering if i can just remove it and replace it with a flatter allen head bolt? But im not a hunderd percent sure if its just a ground bolt or if it holds something in the head? Any advance would be nice..

Im wondering if its just a ground bolt? If so id rather remove it and replace it with a flat allen key bolt to give me a lil more clearance from my pipe

Alright cool.. so i can just remove it then and replace it. I was just worried that it may be holding some pin or check valve in the head or some silly thing like that

Just remove it and grind a few mm off the head for clearance. Unless you have the mechanical skills of an ape it will be fine for removal/install.

Ciao
