You should talk to Injen, the more time goes by, the more they can bitch that you did something to it that caused it to crack.

I had the SAME problem when I took mine off. I had a whole right through the Intake about the size of a penny, down near the bottom curve...I just got the hole welded and Im gonna put it back on in the summer...I cant remember the part that was rubbing against the Intake to create a rubbing motion which created the hole (Ill find out from my borther) but try to angle it out more when you bolt the bracket down...(it was too close to the "piece I cant remember the name of" spineyes)

Some of the ugliest things took the longest time to make
And some of the easiest habits are the hardest one's to break!!!
