Question Is it normal after MAC Short Ram Installed ?

Just installed my MAC Short Intake 2 days ago and I'm in love with the sound and performance of this thing, but I got a question, is it normal that the hood now touches the cone air filter ? I'm assuming that if the hood is touching the filter is also restricting some air into the TB, is it completely normal ? or what do I did wrong ? Thanks in advance for all replies. ;)

nothing's restricting air... your filter touching the hood is probably cuz u didnt push that little collar all the way down into those holes... it takes some work... but u can get those attachments at the bottom of the collar completely into those holes...
