AFE stage 2 si fitment problems
so, I went all out on my shiney new 2010 f250 and went with a minimaxx, afe flange back exhaust and the afe stage 2 si intake. Got the exhaust on yesterday, fitment was great, I just wish the instructions would have said to cut 16" from the #3 peice instead of making me do a mockup and measurement, and the instructions show the rear muffler hanger being flipped in a way that won't fit, but I just flipped it the reverse direction and it fit perfectly.
Went to go install the intake today and... wow, what a cluster-F absolutely no part of it fit correctly, the bolt holes for the MAF were a little too close, the elbow was a pain to fit under the EGR crap, I then had to bust out the sawzall to make the lower peice fit the duct coming from the fender. Evere after all that, I had trouble fitting the box and elbow together, the bolt holes for the box we not aligned very well.
I was fine with all this and just made it fit even though I don't want to MAKE anything fit on my brand new truck.
even the pcv hose seemed stretched too tight.
I really got pissed when I went to go install the metal tray on the front to guide air to the airbox. it just plain didn't fit. I tried to make it fit and I pushed the airbox back so far that the cap got popped off the connector for the cab.
just wondering if anyone else has had this experience and if they figured out how to make it fit. the only other option I can think of right now would be to cut more off the bottom of the airbox, since there is a possibility that the duct coming in could be raising the airbox some.
