Tuner sent me a 22° intake coupler to test fit ahead of product release.

It work well but had to be clocked a certain amount to align things properly. This in turn put the 90° TB coupler into a bit of a bind at the throttle body. I need to move the tube itself more towards the TB to try to lessen that and, potentially, trim the coupler some.

More R&D is in order. Yes, my efforts are being rewarded.

man that bring back memories of me trying to measure out the pyrex rad tube/hose so it would clear the alt and its belt. Seems like getting the angles right should not be a big deal but a little bit off and it is a no-go

You are going to trim off the "finger slicers" aren't you? ;)

Then you surely like to leave the long tails on tie wraps too! :D
Now he did not say he is communist.... In all seriousness that is nearly a mortal sin in the car audio world. I knew one dude that would get mad if you didn't use a specific cutter that ensured they were perfectly flush.

Yeah, I feel the pain. I had a guy that worked in the shop we called, "Butt Connector" and "Zip Tie" (no offense to JJ 'Da Boss) because that's how he fixed everything. That is, until I caught him and made him do it right!

The little red side cutters at harbor freight. Perfect cuts everytime
