I've just bought some Kobe Motorsports silicone pipes.

Jack was very helpful and "no bullsh*t" with my fitment questions - going above & beyond the call of duty by sending a traced outline of the MAF pipe and a picture from the engine bay of another customer who had dealt with the same problem.

The Kobe prices are of course very competitive with the bigger brand-name equivalent pipes out there.

Further to our email exchange pre-purchase, the Kobe SFB pipe fit even better than expected with some trimming.

The trick was to trim asymmetric sections off each end to rotate the pipe (clockwise) more straight between the airbox and Perrin turbo inlet pipe. Hose clamps are a great cutting guide.

There is currently a tiny bit of compression on the installed pipe and on the (standard) airbox, but the airflow path is now wide open, it looks "factory" in the engine bay and it's a 100% improvement on what I had*.

[* By way of background for anyone else reading this; I had a Perrin turbo inlet pipe with a standard MAF/SFB pipe and standard airbox in an SH Forester XT. Due to the different dimensions of the Perrin pipe, the standard MAF/SFB pipe was squashed quite badly between the airbox and Perrin pipe. I bought, trimmed and installed a Kobe MAF/SFB pipe which has worked out very well.]
