Also make sure that your filter is squeezed tight. Any movement and the filter will eat right through the bottom of the FAB. I usually glue in an aluminium base ito the FAB

On the Van's instructions they have you use a foam block against the cowl intake. Then you carve out a tunnel and glass the wall of the tunnel to create a transition fron the cowl inlet to the air box. Any other options then the Van's method.

I've got a removable "snorkel" on my RV6 & 10, which is an alternative to the standard which allows for easier fitting/removal of the bottom cowl, it also removes any strain/wear/vibration from the connection of cowl to fab Box. Not my original idea, plagerised from another builder here. Can be as basic as you like or more involved if you like a bit of glass work. It's a slide fit into the fab box with a scat Hose fitted to a glass removable addition to the bottom cowl opening. Can send pics to anyone interested. Cheers from Western Australia
