      Hey guys, so I'm attempting to install my V-Flow intake but I am having an issue with getting the rubber coupling to attach to both the MAF and the rear part of the intake itself. It seems that the rubber coupling is not large enough to get around either so I was wondering if there is any specific way to get it on there. Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated.

      I also searched on here and there isn't squat on this subject, and I have looked at EVOMS website at their instructions but that didn't seem to help and I'm at loss.

      Sorry for such a noob question

      Take a picture of what you're trying to put it on... mine goes on where it should, maybe you're putting it on the wrong part of the tubing?

      Stretch, stretch, stretch the silicone coupler. You can probably get it on there. I had a similar problem getting the coupler from my EIP intake onto the MAF housing, but I just kept pushing and twisting it and it eventually stretched out enough to slide on.

      Maybe try heating it a little.

      The coupler is TIGHT!!! Especially brand new, the best way is to heat it with a hair dryer, or heat gun if you have one and immediately slip it on. It'll still be tough but you'll get it.

      Here is how I'm putting it together:

      And here is the silicon coupling:
      Untitled

      Now I guess my question is which end of the coupling goes on which part? As in does the larger side of the coupling go on the MAF or does that attach to the intake tube?

      Thanks for all the help/suggestions so far

      If the MAF is the same diameter or wider than the intake tube put the wider side of the coupler on the MAF. If the intake tube is wider than the MAF you will probably have to put the wider side of the coupler on the intake even though it'll be a little bit of a bottle neck.

      Ok well I guess I'll be putting the larger side of the coupler on the intake tube as its just a hair bit bigger than the MAF. Thanks for the help.
