i just cut the bracket on the fan shroud off with a hack saw and cleaned it up with a file. its perfectly legal, cops wont even notice a difference. also i didnt screw the new snorkel to the fan shroud as mine sits there fine and doesnt move, however some have to srew theres in, if you do this BE CAREFUL and only use short shank screws, remember your radiator is about 2cms under that.
