Not sure how much the new tube between the air box and engine would set you back though? Might bring it up to the same as some of the cheaper CAI cost. Plus you wouldn't have to take it off and install the original when you take it in for warranty work.
It's not too late.
If you're that displeased with your S&B, why don't you remove, repack and send it back to the place of purchase for a refund?
