Sounds like someone may have sold you the Large Mouth elbow? You may need the new tube from the intercooler. You can get the large mouth kit or just the large mouth elbow. I would call who you bought it from and see if they sold you the wrong elbow. The regular elbow is tuff, but a few curse words and some sweat should get-r-done. Do you have a part number for the one you bought? I can look it up for you.

Get the larger boost tube, hoses and clamps and you'll be good. Here's some pics. of mine installed.






3rd pic. is a (albeit lousy) shot of where I cut the upper aft corner of the air filter basket to clear the larger boost tube.
