hey all, just had a question. i bought a spctre filter at autozone for that air sucking sound. many have done this and i don't think we are all new with the idea. my question: i took off the stock airbox, and replaced it with the filter (just the filter...i left the stock intake piping on). i know that some feel the need to have a pvc pipe where it joins, but do i HAVE to have one? i installed without it already, and it seems to have a good contact. one thing i am worried about is tho, there is a TINY TINY TINY gap because of the little rubber tabs at the mouth of the stock intake pipe. is it gonna affect me in the long run? if it will, i will run to home depot and get it done. let me know of your opinions of this. thanks!
