    It will not fit. I had a similar issue. I would either wait or just get the 6''. Make sure you specify 4'' inlet with either though.

    I'm guessing that will work, but definitely call WMS to confirm that before ordering.

    LILBLKSNAKE, how did the WMS fit with the billet plug covers you have? Can you get better pictures? I just installed Billet plug covers tonight and I have the UPR and it is VERY VERY tight!!! I don't really like how the UPR fits now, how close does the WMS tube come to the inner strut tower?

    Thanks :coolman:

    The adapter in the initial post of this thread is for your stock MAF.

    VERY TIGHT- I had to start all the strut tower bolts, little by little and loosen each one a bit at a time. It all pulled itself together doing it like this.

    I had a lot of room to play with. I kept adjusting the ceramic coated tube in and out of the rubber piece on the throttle body, until I liked the fit.

    Hey guys,
    Just had the car on the dyno and found a slight issue you might wanna check. The temperature sensor that pops into the WMS tube was very close to the engine, causing false readings and the car was possibly backing off timing. Just have to loosen the hose clamps, spin the tube a bit, then tighten the clamps again!!
    Final readings for the car were 272.9rwhp and 270rw torque. The only other mods are catted-mid and cat-back.

    did you have the tube on backwards? The hole for the sensor should be right behind the MAF.

    If I reversed the tube, the sensor would be on top and the hood might hit it. I just had to loosen all the hose clamps and spin it a bit, it should be fine now.

    Are you talking about the stock rubber piece?? I don't think the inlet is wide enough for a JLT tube and you may have to cut the JLT tube a bit shorter??

    that's what i was thinking. i'll probably ask ciotti to see what the width of the rubber boot is. if not i'll probably look around for other systems that have a rubber boot similar to the wms. and wide enough for the jlt tube...
