    lots of people upgrade to SLP's smooth bellows or buy fernco tubing at Home Depot. You could also try trimming that tubing back so that it doesn't do so much of that accordion lookin shit.

    bellows compressed

    I have never seen a bellows compressed to that degree. Is that a stock modified air box? I am sure you are aware of the filter in need of cleaning/replaced.

    should get a paper filter..or k&n if your into attracting dirt..but overall..its a nice setup with that hood...just needs a lil cleaning here n there....don't think its hurting anything unless airleaks are exposed...then debree can enter through the holes..
