I poped the hood and sure enough the intake slipped off the Throttle body just like that other guy. I also bought a new hose clamp that has a different design.

I think since im not the only one with this issue i might try and fine a different coupler that has a slight taper.

The couplers are kinda greasy or somthing. The rubber has a greasy kinda feel to them. Maybe i should try cleaning it up with somthing sticky so it sticks a little better.

Its not a problem with the install its pretty easy to do. Maybe some of the parts or the way its built has changed a little?
The couplers are silicone, that is why they feel slippery. I ordered a reducer from Samco to put on the throttle body but it has to be made to order by them in the UK so I won't get it until the end of July.

Are the couplers any different and maybe you have the one for the intake to TB where the intake meets the filter ?
I checked that when I first discovered the problem, they are the same size.
