    Tested today highway driving 75mph on cruise control. MAF Temps were 4-7 degrees above ambient.

    Nice! Wish I had a way to monitor. Might have to steal my Scangauge II from my other car...

    @PRL Motorsports - I, like others, had slight issues with the MAF housing bolting to the box perfectly. The holes drilled were ever so slightly off, and had to bore one of them out. Just a heads up for future production.

    I also had the same issue, I eventually got it done but it’s tight.

    Is it IAT or IAT2 we monitor for the intake. I forgot.

    IAT2 is at the MAF, IAT is at the MAP

    I found that I was rubbing here as well. I was able to turn the flange a few degrees (ever so slightly) to relieve pressure from rubbing. It’s still very close but added some foam to it to soften it up. If it still rubs I’ll cut the prl tube as suggested.

    The part that is rubbing is the breather tube.
    Which is part number 17137-RPY-G00
    Price should be $20-25.

    The kicker is It’s discontinued!!!!

    I don’t know what the replacement is, but this usually means this part will be redesigned or simply made by a new manufacturer (thus a new part number).

    For folks that are having contact issues ..... you can slightly bend and reform the black metal vacuum hose a few mm back. Take care not to push too hard....but It will give enough clearance. I did that and have no issues

    I forgot to mention that I did do that. Maybe bent it 1mm. Didn’t want to push it more.

    I’d push it more if I took it out and had it on my vise. But installed, I didn’t know what else I’d possibly damage, so I was careful.

    Just wanted to mention that I took some extra time and moved this metal piece gently out of the way of anything that would rub it. Have plenty of room now.

    has anybody compare ambient temps with stock and with the new pro stage2? Are the temps lower with the upgrade or higher temps?

    The MAF holes were off on mine, too. Had to drill them out a hair. The box also has an ugly little lump/imperfection.

    I gotta say the fitment of the silicone hose to the aluminum intake pipe is absolutely awful. Is everyone else’s like this?

    It’s so oversized the supplied hose clamp wouldn’t work. I called and was made to feel like it’s perfectly fine/supposed to be like this. It’s easily 5/16”+ oversized.

    In regards to any of the silicone, inquiries, the hose was in fact designed to have a slight (1-2mm) gap to ensure that there is a seamless connection inside of the hose. We would rather allow for properly butted connection on the silicone receiving groove stoppers. However, it does appear that a few customers like @VinRRR happened to receive hoses with a shorter cut length than intended. Our apologies to anyone who has this issue. It can be difficult to ensure perfect cut lengths on such a complex hose with multiple plains, but we are doing our best to improve this tolerance window for future batches.

    We apologize to anyone who has experienced this. Our program used to drill these holes has recently been revised and we have implemented the use of a jig to double-check fitment before shipping for the second batch.

    As for the comments in regards to the Evap flange fitment, please keep in mind that fitment is extremely tight here due to the numerous plains of fitment on the nipples and ends. Fitment was intended to be rather close to the lines and whatnot, but not touching. However, as some of you have already mentioned, the flange can be rotated and lines can be bent ever so slightly to allow adequate fitment (which is still rather tight, but will not harm anything).

    This does not appear to be normal whatsoever. Please message more pictures of this connections to [email protected] so we can tackle this issue.
