Problem with Spectre Intake

I went to my local autozone and purchased all of the parts that I was told I would need to assemble an intake. However, when I went to put it on the car, it seems that the MAF sensor does not fit into the part that I bought for the car. Has anyone had this problem, or can anyone provide any suggestions to solve this?

I had to dremel a horizontal slot on the intake. You also have to make sure that your MAF is facing the right way.

I was hoping that by buying the MAF sensor adapter that spectre makes, I would be able to get around the dremeling

I wouldn't doubt they have them, just find a person who can make clean welds and your set.

So, just dremel the part I bought, or do it to a new 4" or 6" straight piece?
