My AFE intake. Didn't notice to much of a gain before my SC, and after it just wouldn't fit at all. Running the stock airbox now. Total waste of money.

You shouldn't have any play at all. Simple fix would be to go to the auto parts store or any hardware store and buy some washers to take up the gap.

We do not have any of those inspections in the states. You can lift the car 10 feet in the air if you want and it will still be fine.
