    I got an AFE cai from another member here not too long ago. Intake is in great condition & has all the parts it says it's supposed to. However, when I try to swap over the MAF sensor, the stock gasket doesn't fill the MAF hole in the AFE tube. I don't see anything about a new gasket in the AFE parts list, but the stock switch over is clearly a smaller diameter. I've had a hard time getting a hold of someone over at AFE to ask about this. Do any of you guys know what I'm talking about or have had the same issue. Am I missing something here? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    there are two little plastic pieces I believe that elevate the sensor mount over the intake tube that makes it fit right.

    Yeah, I've got the spacers, but there's still space between the gasket and the hole. They seem to be 2 different diameters. What gives? This AFE is for a 2005+ V-6 4.0L.
