is it possible to use an adaptor of sorts to fit this on a non 330?

or would you need a proper tailor made one? if so, any plans on a boot for non 330's?

So I installed this yesterday, the hardest part was getting the clamp to fit flush over the very edge of the boot right at the throttle body. I kept tightening the boot only. I was surprised to find a gaping hole in the smaller secondary hose that connects to the engine block :S

Now I know where those lean bank codes were coming from. Car runs great now...will
post pics of my engine bay once I dust it off.

On a side note, did anyone else have to modify the upper intake boot? In spite of how far in to the throttle body I pushed in the lower intake boot, the fitment was still so off that there was simply no way of getting the MAF in the intake box (end section of boot seemed to be too long).
I ended up having to cut off about 1.5cm from the end of the upper intake boot where the MAF is held...the cut also had to be angled downwards as the boot was jutting the MAF upwards instead of straight. In the end I got it to fit perfectly with hose clamps holding everything tightly...just thought I'd get that out there in case anyone else is having the same problem as me.

Damn, I'm pretty sure I pushed the lower boot as far in as I could over the TB...even then, pushing it further in would result in lateral relocation of the upper boot, not the depth.

Strange...in any case, that nasty whistle is gone now and my car seems to respond better...placebo effect maybe? I dunno, but I do sleep better at night now.
