To those that have installed the Injen intake...

So i just recently got my injen intake installed by ltbmw so im sure the install was done right since they have prob done intake installs alot...my question is for those that have this intake...is the injen air duct suppose to be capable of moving around a little bit...or does it sit tight with no movement at all.

I installed mine and on the 335i only one screw will fit into the air duct I believe. But they do have that little support bracket on the side that suppose to sure it up a little. Mine's feel pretty secure.

it will tighten down to where it is snug, but since it only has one screw it tends to loosen up a bit

Ok so i got everything re-tightened and it seems to fit pretty good now with only slight movement...just wish the designer from injen used both screws and the bracket to hold it in place...that would prob fix the problem

I have an ETS charge pipe with a Tial bov. From looking at pics, I'm just not sure if the bend of the second injen intake pipe will clear the top of my bov.
