Help Installing GMPP Intake

Only problem I'm having is getting the elbow over the throttle body adapter seal.

It just won't slide on. Any tips on how to get past this?

keep working it, trying to spin it on like a screw. Eventually, it will go on. If that dont work, you can always heat it.

put the gasket only half in the intake elbow,then slide it on, the gasket should slide in the rest of the way. if that dosent work, try to spread the elbow a little with ur hands

Whichever one is giving you the most trouble. Both can be heated.
