thats just the bushing that came apart. i dont like using these for that reason. you can easily figure out a DIY fix if you just go to the hardware store, but I'm sure you could also get replacement bushings. Is that a fswerks intake? Looks like it. I'd contact the manufacturer and see if you can get replacements. I bet you can.

That's what happens when you replace factory part with plenty of allowance for movement and replace with part that is rigid. Replacements will break as well. Needs more flex joints to soak up engine movement.

As a noob, could you go into the pieces a little more, what changes would cause this and a good fix if you know one? Thanks!

Or you could restrict the engine from moving so much, like w/ a mountune roll restrictor :)
came in the mail yesterday :big smile:
