Well the filter is in the exact same spot as it used to be with the longer pipe and might even be an inch or two further away. Thing is the pipe extended into the filter so I believe that was making the airflow a bit weird and after the cut things are perfect. I just cleaned the intake right before I installed it and made sure not to get any finger prints or anything else on it but today when I popped the hood I noticed water spots. It did just rain heavily yesterday but I dont see how water spots could have gotten on it with the hood closed the hole time.
