That's the direction I'm thinking on. I how the flex section is there to account for the engine torque an it's affect on the distance from the TB to the air box, so a smooth piece would have to accommodate this requirement. I have to wonder is a manufactured slip join from plumbing pipe would work in this application. It would have to have a good seal and maintain it with a lot of movement though....Hmmm....

And it looks like there may be enough room to do just that. After I figure out how to get rid of the accordion, that will likely be the next item to mod. In both cases, I will do whatever I can to maintain the OEM look as much as possible.
