Damn. I was gonna warn you when I saw the install picks. Figured you'd see this forum.

I realize it's not really K&N's fault, but still, if I'm paying 250 - 300 bucks for a quality product, I don't expect a simple bump to break it.

I don't have the tools to build this, but I was thinking building a post that screws into the base plate and supports the filter would help.
