I haven't had a probel with mine loosening in about 2 months. Put it on, and just went and checked, still very tight.
I left the protective paper on my heat shield for now. I'm still deciding what direction to go under the hood for colors etc., so I might end up having it painted.

It could be because I have a very early Steeda CAI. I think I bought it in April or May 2006. Looking at the picture, even my weather stripping is different. Here's a couple of photos. One with the elbow on and one with it off (most recent). You can even see where I added an extra hose clamp to try and keep it secure.

Wanted to get back to you on advise you gave me in Sept to my post. I have been watching the clamps to see if they are getting loose with the new Steeda Carbon Fiber elbow. Happy to say they are still very tight, no problems at all to report.

Thanks again for giving me the heads up:shiny:
