AA green filter install..help.

Doesn't seem to fit as well as the stock filter. Seems a little bit bigger and so the intake doesn't seem to fit as snug around the manifold, is this common? Or do I have the wrong filter?

Mine is the same way...I figured once the rubber has had a chance to adjust to the plastic mating surface of the intake, it will seal completely. Banking on the summer heat to help out with this.

Just for clarification. This is on the side of the engine not where the filter inserts on the distil end. Thats kind of disappointing actually, im a bit OCD so this annoys me lol.

Nevermind. Got it to fit. Had to kind of jam it in there vs taking the entire intake assembly off and then putting it back on. Big thanks to Karl for his patience and help while I stopped being a retard. Also big thanks to Kenneth for fixing the shipping mishap. Overall I am happy with AA's customer service!
