You should be fine. I don't even think that you'll have a problem unless it's directly rubbing for a long period of time. Most people don't have issues...I don't even think that I would, just wanted to exercise caution

Some wire loom is just enough to protect the line, check out mine (by the MAS housing and Z-tube):


Wire loom is pretty cheap too and if you are going for engine bling (like me) you can get it in different colors.

There is a bracket right behind the AC line. If so desired, you could use a small tie and lightly pull the AC line back a bit and tie it down to the bracket.

keep an eye on it, just beacuse its not touching when you looking at it, there's alot of vibration that can cause chaffing to that soft aluminum a/c line.

Use some type of rubber/plastic cover.
I even removed that funky clamp & bought a simple worm drive clamp thats much flatter & would never rub against it. Better safe than sorry. That a/c line is very expensive, beacuse it's long & snakes all around & under on that side of the engine compartment.

no need to reset after a simple mod like popcharger. once you get a lot of bolt ons, you should get it tuned

I finally got my p/c bracket on there and to layers of wire loom on the ac line. It was sitting on it for a couple of weeks and there was a small mark on there, but hopefully theres no damage.

Here is what I did, I went to radio shack to buy some wireloom for $5 and protect the AC line with some electrical or cherry tape wrap around it. Here is a picture for your judgement.

As mentioned by Gordgee, a simple solution would be to rotate the MAF tube about 1/2" from alignment in relation to the Z-Tube. This seems to allow for the required clearance. But you definitely need that Popcharger bracket to secure the filter in place.

Yep. It works like a charm. I didn't need to go out to buy any other tubing or insulation foam padding. Just a slight twist and the alignment clears perfectly. I did that about 2 yrs ago and it never came back as a problem. If you left the thing touching, then potentially the AC line may crack resulting from constant touching/rubbing of the filter, in which case, the dealer may not warrant the repairs of the AC line due to your negligence during your installation work. So I highly recommend everyone who has installed this combo to re-check their AC line for adequate clearance.

ok, so I just unbolt the MAF from the pop charger and then rotate clockwise so that the bolts all switch one space over? or did you just rotate the MAF aseembly and pop charger all together by loosening the hose clamp and then switching the pop charger bracket to the next bolt??
