Oil Change Progress Part 4

I was debating whether to call this update Part 3a as opposed to Part 4. It's actually only a minor update. My intercooler piping is fully connected and am really chuffed with the photo updates Toby sent me. Looks really good!

Here's the right side There are two Turbosmart Murray constant tension clamps on each side of the intercooler. Only bought 10 clamps and will need to order 4 more. All elbow/coupler/joiner hoses are silicone polymer Samco Sport in classic blue.

The left side.

In addition my Full-Race EFR BOV cover arrived. The stock EFR BOV cover is plastic whereas the Full-Race equivalent is CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminium and hard anodized black. Aluminium is definitely stronger than plastic. The Full-Race EFR BOV cover is also threaded and comes with a 90 degree barb fitting to make it easy to plumb in tight constraints. I am planning to replace this with an AN equivalent. The thread on the BOV cover is 1/8 NPT. The barb is 7/32" ID and should also be equivalent to an AN Dash 4. Pictures of the BOV cover below plus the provided 90 degree barb fitting. Top.

Bottom. Finishing and anodizing is immaculate.

Here's an old picture of my EFR 6258 showing the stock beige coloured plastic BOV cover.

Should I replace the bolts on the BOV cover with Ti equivalents?
