    It make changing the air filter a bitch. Search on here, there are post where you can make one from parts found a LOWES or Home Depot. Otherwise your going to pay like $60 or more.

    Smooth bellows from SLP for $50

    Or you can go to Lowes/Home Depot and get a 3x3 Fernco and trim it yourself to fit. It costs $5 but takes some work to make it fit properly.

    The help along the same lines that the LID does. Removing baffels, which promote air flow.

    You might only see 1-3 HP out of it (when you have a upgraded filter and LID), but $/HP, this is one of the best ratios with this mod. (best one I have is the TB bypass).

    I would also suggest maybe a "no hub" band from lowes ect. They are thinner more flexable rubber. They come with a tin surround that can just slide out from under the clamps, leaving just the black rubber. It would be a little easier to work with. Or jump on Egay and grab a rubber coupling for FI charge pipe setups.

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.
