Question Need Advice: TechniCooler vs. S&B

I finally finished installing the Banks Technicooler yesterday, & it went great! Everything's in place & very clean...except for one thing. After reinstalling my S&B intake, I've noticed clearance between the boost tube & the S&B intake tube are...well, TIGHT! So tight, that it's been bugging me for the past 24hrs. since I've installed it. Below I have a pic of what I'm dealing with. Can someone give me some advice of how I can remedy this? I've tried to move both boost tube & intake tube to live in harmony, but neither want to play too much. Any help/advice is appreciated!

probably not alot you can do , ive run into similiar problems before , where the problem comes in is most of those parts are set up i think on a truck with stock intake setup where clearance isnt a issue, may not be able to get it any better with the size of the intake tube being larger than factory

get an old tire tube and cut off a piece and glue it to one or the other so they dont rub a hole in each other
