Thanks for posting. I was skeptical this might happen which is why I went a different route ultimately. I'm assuming these crutch tips will hold up since they're pretty thick, but I am going to snag a "Jimmy" special next time I'm at the hardware store to throw in the trailer just in case. The main thing is whatever we use I think it needs to seal to prevent additional airflow into the intake tube since it's downstream from the MAF.VTBoss302 said:It happened on its own. The cap is too soft and weak.
I replaced it with a sturdier cap I found at the local hardware store.

Airaid eliminated the port on their intake.steveespo said:I am thinkik of epoxying a plastic disc over the tube and then reinstalling the rubber cap. should keep the vacuum from sucking the rubber in if it deteriorates. Wish Steeda just eliminated the port when they molded the elbow on my CAI.
i have over 10k miles on mine without issue and i would bet it will continue to be trouble free for 50k more! i am biased though ;DLindsayEOD said:Has anyone on here tried the Blowfish Racing one?
very nice I bet some where will want you to make them onemardis said:One of the first things we did when we brought home the new hottie was yank the sound tube.
Like many here, went with the Cool Tech kit. I was un-impressed with the cap/clamp get-up so.....
I had an open CNC lathe at work and whipped this up quick. 6061-T6 aluminum with a .010 press fit. When I mean press, I mean press. Took everything I had to get it on, so I know it is there to stay.
