Hello, I recently installed the AFE Stage 2 Pro SI Intake on my 2007 F150. The only thing i was not sure about is the point at where the stock intake connected to the hole in the fender to force feed air into the stock intake. After installing the AFE intake i noticed the scoop closest to the fender does not fit flush with the hole in the fender. There is about a 1 gap there. Is that the way this air intake was designed or was it designed to sit flush with the hole in the fender. For now i cut the old piece of the stock intake that was fitted into the hole in the fender to force feed air into the new intake from that point in the fender. Would you guys recommend i leave that or take it out? And is the AFE intake designed to not sit flush against the fender? THANK YOU

I spoke with my contact at AFE to inquire about the modification you have made by installing a piece of the old air intake to direct air directly into the air box.
He said that normally the trim seal is used to eliminate most of the gap but that the alteration you have made will most likely provide a small amount of extra airflow. The only thing to be aware of is that the extra air flow may cause the mass air flow sensor to set off a fault code. If this is the case the extension you have added will need to be removed.
He recommended leaving the extension, unless there is a problem indicated by a fault code.
The aFe Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System, item # AFE54-80512, is not designed to fit completely flush to the fender.
