Never thought much about it, other than they made it that way to enable folks who didn't want to spring for the Airaid tube to use the OEM tube.

Saw some pics of the S + B and I see its about the same scenario,,, the inlet of their pipe is small compared to the end attached to the TB. Once again, a large diameter filter base reduced down to a small diameter at the airbox,,,
Not sure what part you're speaking of here. Post one of the pics from my OP if it helps you explain.

Please explain.

No idea.

The OEM tube is an accordian type and, while it was on the truck it didn't really surpise me that it moved around freely with very little user effort. However, I was actually shocked how flimsy it felt upon removal. Typical OE product [for the most part].

Like I posted earlier, there's absolutley no reason why a CAI kit should have ANY play once it's [correctly] assembled.

I agree.
