Default Gen4 Vararam Air Grabber, Did I get a bad one???

Modding the Mod...

Trimmed the wing to unbind the the assy from the lines... Also the middle leading edge trimmed and widened so the wing would not be hitting the horn electrical connectors...

Filter Element popping out...

Overtightened lid wing nuts to hold filter in place at the bottom. Not going to be a long term fix, because the lid will crack or the bolts will pull out of the bottom...

Oh ya by the way, It does not seal against the hood 100%... Stock hood has a 1 inch recess inside, centered on the hood and the CAI with a 1 inch rubber seal, is centered on the motor (2 inch off center to the passenger side) (thanks Mother Mopar)... There is no way this will ever seal without further modding...

Currently waiting on Vararam because I want this CAI to work...
