    Yes... it’s like .5mm. Pretty minor.
    Everything went on so easy.

    Drove today for 11/2 hrs and maf temps behavior on stop and go traffic plus highway driving beats the stock airbox with high flow filter and prl stage 1 and the mishimoto intake out of the water. Temperatures went as low as 6 degrees above ambient at one moment. Mostly stayed about 8-9 degrees. Even on traffic when it will get 130deg hot as soon as you start driving it goes down quick. Nice work PRL.

    This is the closest I could do for the gap.

    Mine was like that at first but I found if I put my hand underneath that side and twisted and pulled towards the pipe I could get it a lot closer. Just a suggestion.

    I’m thinking of cutting the hose (green) 2mm to eliminate the rub (red). Currently, the flange is rubbing the paint off of the vac pipe. Most people won’t notice the rub unless they look for it in the area.

    You can push and bend that metal hose back and away from the Evap plastic housing just enough to make it stop touching.
    It’s what I did, no problems.

    I also find that my Thermal RD exhaust now sounds even more audible after installing the PRL intake..... in a good way.
    I hear more cracks and pops.... also it tends to be slightly louder and more raw.
    It’s awesome!

    I was thinking of that too, but I don’t have the tool to make sure it’s a straight cut. The paint on that pipe is so easy to come off, I was like wth lol. A lot of people rotate the flange to a horizontal position, and that helps with the rubbing. However, by doing that, the hose on the right will point upward and may potentially rub against the hood. A few solutions I can think of: 1. Make the flange adapter thinner 2. Make the hose bend toward the front more (like stock) 3. Like you said, make that evap hose shorter.

    Imagine you bend a little too much and break a hose! Yikes!

    I notice my HKS is a little louder and has has more pop while shifting as well. Love it!

    Got mine installed today too. Over all it's pretty nice.

    Would like the connecting pipe between the air box and inlet pipe 1/2" longer. 1/4" on the inlet pipe would be more assuring and 1/4" on the airbox connection too.
    Minor gripe I agree but it seems most who have installed these has the same gap issues.
