Would it be wrong to not re-install the 4 screws that are covered by the OTE pipe for quicker access to the coils & plugs? Would it harm anything?

I still have the cast aluminum pipe, so I can't just bend/ push it out of the way without completely disconnecting it from the turbo. I don't pop it open very often... but it's a pain since everything under the cover is accessible with the pipe in place. Except for those 4 screws.

Lol. It's a pain in the ass, right? There is no gasket that needs to be compressed. Don't see where it would hurt anything.

I've done that to mine. But I am starting to think that it has caused an unwanted rattle in the engine bay.

It's just a decorative cover, shouldn't hurt a thing. As someone else said, if it starts to rattle, just throw a lil velcro on or something.
