upgraded chargepipe w/stock DV's & Mr. 5 intake Fitment Problems

Has anyone here fitted the ER chargepeipe with the stock diverter valves and Mr 5 intake? I just got done only to realize that the DV's now sit where the intake tube would be that connects to the air box. Has anyone mounted them another way? I would hate to have to sell the intake i just got.

You have to convert the stock diverter valves into "blow off" mode by removing the reducting pipes and placing filters on the ends (the filters aren't necessary, just a precaution. you could also buy the awe valves, which replace the stock ones and come with filters.) I did this when i had a mr. 5 style intake.

Known problem -- Look for the Helix Intake (similar to a Mr5), they had to use the AWE BOVs to avoid clearance issues

It may be known to some. I've been searching not knowing about helix and couldn't find anything. I got it all together though, it's tight. I'm flashing back to stage 2+ now.
