Just curious, given that the original part is fixed at both ends and intended to stretch as the engine moves, without narrowing the width of the hose (hence the concertina section), how much flex is in the silicon alternative and does it narrow if it's stretched?

Dont think this will be an issue, the air box is thrown away and replaced with a better air filter which isnt held down.............also safer (for the engine) in the wet maybe? Im very keen on this mod :) just need to see my local condom maker see if he can make me one up......or a few if anyone else is interested?

Well, just be careful to tie down your MAF (you don't want the cable snapping) and keep the intake high (ish) in the engine bay,so that it doesn't suck in any water when you "ford" the occasional big puddle.

Thanks for the offer of the silocone, I'm going to stay with the default configuration and keep looking for a replacement flexible hose (or hose replacement!).
