Hey Drugrunner, your intake pipe connection to the throttle body looks to be a little off center.
It looks like the bend radius of the pipe is not correct due to interference of the filter with the fluid reservoir.
Keep a close eye on your rubber connector. Looks like it'* under a lot of stress.
I know what you mean. It'* not really too much off center. But the real problem is the reducer is a little too big for my TB, so it seems to bulge more than normal. But I've inspected it several times since I've gotten it and it hasn't cracked or caused any damage. Hopefully it never will.

The filter actually doesn't touch the fluid resevoir. It came REALLY close though so I trimmed the reducer a bit to make more room on that side too (those pics are before I trimmed it). But I want to switch to the smaller fluid resevoir so I have more room there for incoming air and so I can have a better CAI eventually.

The other thing to remember is that the L27 and L36 upper intake inlet (where the TB attaches) is actually an angle, not straight like the L67. It makes it look worse than it really is.
