Could you throw me a link to what you bought specifically?

I looked through autozones and didn't really see anything that popped. All looks like ribbed dildos. Was hoping for just a straight rubber tube to cut down on turbulence and aesthetic looks. And I have to bend it to fit onto the oval shaped outlet of the air filter.

I measured and it was between 3 1/2 and 3 3/4ish. The 4inch couplers seemed wayyy too big at home depot, I brought my airlid in :P

Well I have a modified v8 slp lid and I just walked into AutoZone asked if they had any of those couples and they brought out a book with spectre in it and I ordered a 4 inch for the throttle body I believe and 3.5 to fit the lid. I bought the ribbed dildo tube though but as for if you just want it straight some people use, I don't remember what its called, but its like PVC pipe

Before I got my lid, I did mine with a small piece of PVC pipe and a couple smooth rubber couplers, all from Home Depot.

Buy the whisper lid I looked for one for about a month and just said screw it and did what I did. It probably doesn't work as well as the whisper lid but I spent a lot of money on it and it looks pretty good plus I feel like I felt some top end gains with it especially from 3rd and up but it could be my imagination. It does make a pretty cool sucking sound though so it must work some lol

Well kdm doesn't have the tubing to the throttle body just the lid. So id still have to find my own piping to delete the silencer. But the whisper lid could have a larger oval which would make finding a coupler easier
