Before the new intake setup can be installed the wiper cowl must be removed as will be the windshield wipers as they currently reside where the intercooler will live. I plan on treating the windows with RainX and have no intentions of driving this thing in the rain anyways. For now, I will only be removing the center section of the cowl. Later on when the Hairys Glass fiberglass front end goes on. I will remove the hood hinge portion and the end of the cowl area as the hood will meet up to the windshield and a cowl won’t be necessary.
First step is to remove the wiper cover. Here you can see the previous clearance work I had to do to make the old small block Chevy swap fit. This will all be removed. Leaving only enough material to support the bottom of the windshield and the seam where the factory firewall meets the cowl.
With the cowl removed. Now comes removing the BTR EQ1 intake.
