I wondered if I needed to get after the thing with a mallet? If it develops a problem it's too late.

A small portion of the hood sits on the exhaust and COULD....not saying it will... but COULD be a problem


I know they fixed the issue at the factory and i wanna say it was maybe 3 weeks or so ago with making a slight indent on the exhaust sheild

Glad mine is being built now on the 28th

I thought the OEM o ring wasnt big enough and the fix was a larger size o ring....i thought i read a guy getting a slightly larger size at the hardware store but i could have been mistaken

I think you're right. I seen that somewhere here.
If the OEM o-ring is there, then as long as its not filled to high up the neck it shouldnt leak.
lots of people like to fill them to the top.
In that case a thicker o-ring would seal better.
the o-ring it comes with is the same one used on some AC gas caps.
