    RBTurbo plate review/DIY

    I must say as always Rob Bech knocked it out of the park yet again! I got the RB plate and polished it up (Polished nicely), after installing this plate I realized this is more than just a cosmetic plate. The plate seperates the oil line nicely and also follows the contour of the oil filter housing much better than the previous plate I had. With this plate seperating the oil lines you will get a lot less rubbing!
    Great job Rob!!!

    Very nice. How much does that cost? I need to re-locate my lines to clear the compressor housing of my turbo, this would be perfect.

    If you can leave black marks on a straight from the time you exit a corner till the time you brake for the next turn....... Then, you have enough horsepower.

    Looks very trick. What's the purpose or reason for this mod though other than looking good? Is there an inherent flaw or weakness this overcomes?

    at first it was just cosmetic, but it keeps my lines from rubbing wich is a huge plus!

    removes factory thermostat, allowing for delete, or aftermarket one.

    arguably better design than others on offer due to wider spacing?

    keep forgetting it does that to...I have always had a external one. I seriously think this is better with wider spacing.

    RB really knows how to get free advertising. It's beginning to get on my nerves.

    If this was not from a reputable user who contributes excellent content I'd be upset.
