The fit was loose so I decided to get the caps that Gary bought. I could not find them in black so I picked up some white ones. While test fitting I saw it would leave little pieces behing (can't see with black?) and I was not happy about that so I put the Cooltech piece inside of the cap. This way it will not suck pieces into the intake, it worked but I was still not happy. I am thinking this will degrade further with the engine heat and FL weather. I had already cleaned the inside before I shot this pic:
I went back to the store and bought the 1 1/2 inch cap. When you tighten it down it works just fine, a little smaller would be better but I feel this is better then the other options. I also left the Cooltech cap inside of this cap.
I have been meaning to post a pic of this hose adapter. It takes up most of the space between the 1 1/2" cap and the fitting on the air intake. You just have to shorten it a little.
