    Ive been looking to replace mine... since it disappeared somewhere I need to.

    With all the options, it looks like you got the OEM with the openings.

    What part number is that?

    It is the OEM. I bought it from the dealer. I don't have the part number. The tech put the heat tape down and made a few minor other tweaks but was essentially a straight bolt on.

    Do NOT forget this... let us know if you notice better PTU temps or anything else.

    If you install this and you get more cooling airflow around the rear turbo and PTU, how much extra road grime accumulates that needs cleaned off before oil changes/maintenance/repairs?

    Mine has been on for about a year. I really haven't seen any added grime honestly.

    That's good, I live in the snow belt, so I get to drive on salted roads 3-5 months of the year. That kind of road grime/salt/rust is what I would be worried about.

    Thanks again!

    I posted a while ago after I did mine. I saw a drop in temps per my Torque app. Happy I did mine and should help more once temps warm up.
