    I cant even get my velocity stack bolts into the air box, because the holes are misaligned.
    And we have people complaining about the gap lol

    I had trouble with the stack at first too but I had too many bolts in and had 1 that kept misaligning. I ended up removing all but that one misaligned bolt and put it in first. After that, it all went smoothly.

    Get a tap set, I had to for my EVS wing because I accidentally cross threaded one of the holes.

    I'm bummed for I still haven't received mine yet. Quite a few of us out here in CA are still waiting, the perks of living on the opposite side of the country haha.

    I don't have a problem with the bottom and inner bottom part. My problem is the part near the vac hose. It's being pulled toward the airbox for some reason. If I remove the vac hose, I could minimize the gap and clamped down. But I couldn't get the vac hose in after that. As you can see from my pic, I spent so much time gripping and twisting the hose that the tape outside lost its shine.

    I made sure to use a sock wrench instead of a flathead screwdriver because you can tighten it more. Also, I suggest everyone to doublecheck and retighten the clamp after driving around for a while. I've found that I could tighten the clamp a quarter turn more after that. Not just this intake, but the one I had previously too.

    Looks like you’re rubbing:

    I haven’t fixed mine yet. I’ll try rotating the silicone hose first. If this doesn’t fix it, I’ll proceed to cut the silicone by 2mm where the flange mounts (a suggestion to @PRL Motorsports).

    Yes, it is. I mentioned it in my previous post. What tool are you going to use to cut it? I looked at the Stage 1 hose and notice that the evap hose is a lot shorter as well.

    Nice work!
    What temps were you seeing with the PRL stage 1 tube and filter, for comparison?

    Sharp Xacto knife with the clamp in place (but hose removed from the car) as guide. Just a plan for now. Haven’t done it yet.

    What's everyone's IAT after the intake? I'm seeing 135-140 degrees with regular driving in 110 degrees haha...
