damn intake problem
Piss me off. i spent all day trying to install my Intake but i got the wrong size filter and couplers. I'm not blaming the person that i bought it from, but the damn.. the warehouse or whatever needs to start paying attention. ALL this work and i found out that the couplers dont even fit over the tubes... BARELY. And the couplers are SMALLER in diameter than the throttle body so forget that.. the filter as well. SIGh... anyone have extra couplers or a filter? Usually Intakes come with two couplers right? one for extra. Thanks

take the metal sleeving off smile and the coupler fits. you gotta detach the clamps from the metal sleeving to use them.

it's AEM replica.. and im pretty sure that it's impossible to put on after about 1 billion tries. I tried as hard as i could and it barely goes over 3/4 of the throttle body.. and EVEN if i somehow managed to get it on the throttle body... it's gonna be impossible to put the Intake tube on from the other side. DAMNNNN
