stock intake

I changed my air filter this weekend and noticed before I started that the housing that holds the MAF sensor seems warped on the inner edge where it meets the powercore filter. I checked inside after removing the whole thing and no dirt looks like it has been getting by. I put the new filter on and it does not line up any better than the old one did. Has anyone else seen this problem.

Well thanks for the reply I was just curious it did not look like dirt was getting by but I did'nt know if it might be problem, I did a search and could not find anything so it must be non issue here.

thanks zspear1

theres a rubber seal pressing around it, it don't fit all straight but it seals i think.

Well thats exactly how mine is fitting as well. I love the filter but wish it was more like the Donaldson kit for the 7.3. I will mess around with somthing else instead of worrying about it, as long as it seals i'm OK with the look of it warped.
