afe Proguard Intake problem

Just installed Afe proguard on my f550 last night, It fits perfect except for the filter minder. The way it has to be puged in to the intake, is directly where a sensor on an air conditioning line is. Has anyone else ran into this problem?

yours appears to have better clearance than mine. Mine is right where the a/c sensor is, im going to mess with it in a little bit to see if i can get it to move. If the hole was drilled an inch in any other direction it would be perfect

Mines the same as yours ryandamo, I just left it and haven't had any issues. I wish it fit a little better too.

Cheap and easy compared to the aFe Takeda intake I put in my 370Z.

I had the same problem, so I adjusted the tube as high as it could go on the airbox since it had the elongated holes. It clears now, just barely. But I had to do a little modifying to the airbox cover to get it to fit afterwards.
