    Whisper Lid/85mmPaceMAF/Smooth Bellows Fit Issue!!

    I have the Whisper Airlid, an 85mm Pace MAF and Smooth bellows, and when installed i can't get the lid to seat. It is pushed too far forward and i cant even force it into place. What should i do? trim the smooth bellow?

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    I thought the bellow has a flexible bubble in the middle to accomodate the distance?

    But yes, triming it would be an option-good luck making it look smooth!

    I had to trim my smooth bellows to get the lid to seat....but the whole lid doesn't seat just the front lip try and tuck it into the airbox, it will be tight but it will fit........

    If you have to trim it, try a scroll saw or a thin blade band saw. That may give you a smoother cut and not look all hacked up. Good luck.
