I agree. A flat metal ring or bushing around the I.D. of the flange would be great.

Please check the email I sent you on 6/12. You will see that I mentioned FF user wantz12, who has also mentioned on the board here that he has the same issue. I also suggested at that time that he contact you.

He mentioned it in this post, which was a reply to my install post on the prior page, where I first mentioned the issue in post #192 of that thread on 6/1 : http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...=K%26N&page=17
Just contacted Troy regarding this issue. I also asked if he wanted me to send K&N my cracked housing. Once I took it off, I noticed the bend in the housing was MUCH larger than I thought.

Reinforcing the filter? I see two problems with the current design. First, the housing is not properly seated in the heat shield, which could cause vibrations in the engine bay to reach the housing. Tbone mentioned this.

Second, the housing's flange is very smooth. I'm afraid that there's not enough friction to hold on the filter. Not only that, but the lack of the ability to tighten the filter on the flange prevents us from making sure that the filter won't fall off. So, Sonic, if you're talking about supporting the filter, this may help solve the problem.
