Britalman Intake Installation

Can anyone help me with installation of the 3" straight hose? How exactly am I supposed to attach it to the throttle body?

The hose isn't big enough to fit aorund the throttle body. I tried lining up the hose and the throttle body perfectly and clamping but this didn't seem like the right thing to do.

Can anyone help me out? Thanks. For now, I've put the stock airbox on again.
Thanks!

Here's pictures of my problems (I hope these pictures work):

you need to really really stretch it out. Try putting it on one side first, hold it down real tight and then pull it over the other side. It does fit though.

You just have to wrestle it on. It's very hard to do, but it does fit(based on fujita experiences).

Thanks for the help guys! I finally had some time to install it and it was pretty easy this time around. I'd say it took less than 30 minutes because I knew wher e everything was. The growl is nice =).

Here's a quick question: I know everyone talks about the poor heat shield for hte Britalman. I also understand that it will probably cause performance loss for my car. So is this extra heat that it takes in harmful to the car? I live in Texas and we all know it hots here for most of the year. Please let me know. Thanks!
