Are you talking about the tube leading to the throttle body or the tube from the snorkel to the intake housing?

Lol looks is why I got the k&n. The power ain't bad either. I only wish they had a custom intake tube with the Maf sensor built in.

Intake tube = throttle body to MAF housing
MAF housing = what the MAF sensor is in. (This is what Steeda redesigned w/velocity stack)

I thought steedas design was one tube from the maf housing to the throttle body.

Steeda redesigned the MAF housing. They use the stock intake tube. K&N redesigned the intake tube, and kept the stock MAF housing. The previous discussion seemed to have the terms confused.

The MAF housing was custom designed, not the intake tube.
