    Also, @johnrando I was thinking of cutting them to get their better fit already, judging by the pictures, the silicon kits are nowhere near a plug and play status like the OEM ones. Any specific steps/cuts you made on the kit for them to fit better? If you have a set of instructions you followed before the fit, id appreciate if you have a link to that. other than that, ill probably just try to get them to resemble the oem shape for the better fit.

    Thanks in advanced guys, ill be PM'ing some of you soon.
    Having had both. The Stett ones are thicker than the Mishimotos. However, the Mishimotos have a smoother/cleaner interior. I would think it's better for airflow. I ended up selling the Stett to a friend in need like I do all my other parts lol Both require cutting though. I cut a ton on my Mishimotos. Razor blade works. I have pictures of how much I cut in my build thread somewhere.

    Just use a brand new razor blade and it will cut like butter. You can use a couple of hose clamps as a strait edge so your cut isnít all wavy.

    Oh man, I didnt think of doing that, the non straight, jagged edges was a concern in the back of my mind, it also probably wouldve set off my ocd. This tip should come in hand now. Thanks!! :D
