Also there is no tube on the drain of the can, just the ball valve, I will contact them to see what I am expected to do for that/if I have to provide my own drain fitting and hose.
Wow, they can't even send a simple completed product without half assing it, kind of pathetic.

This has to be one of the worst companies I have ever heard of. So many people here getting screwed, I think you all should make that your signature: "I got screwed by RX." With a link to the topic of how you got screwed. Any luck contacting BBB?

Damn! That's hideous! It doesn't even seal in the engine bay! That's just blatant copying though. I'd be mad as hell.

Not for anything, but did you try to rotate the fittings? I know on my old RX can the fittings would turn....albeit they were very tight. Just a suggestion.

If I were CAI, not sure I'd be too mad as that is a horrendous attempt at copying their intake. Anyone that buys that contraption is a moron

I did put quite a bit of force on one to try and turn it , and it wasn't budging, it was to the point I thought I might damage it if I kept trying, also I don't think it would be possible to turn the middle fitting around without it hitting the fitting beside it , I ended up just having the hose come around the front of the can.


On another note- Still no response from them about the drain

Both fittings spin. The outside one is treaded, the inside one is just a push on. You can spin them without fear of breakking them.
