It is not magic!

It's not like Afe is some company with a huge racing heritage. Not much engineering or testing goes into their products, they use the same cookie cutter technique for all cars:

- Create a free flowing intake duct
- Add a high flow filter
- Apply Afe sticker
- $$$$$
- Next car

Amen! Thanks again for posting this fix. My car runs so much better after making a spacer for it. Mine is ugly and made from Delrin but it works perfect.
