Nice unit, but needs installation component updating

I am enjoying my AFE intake system. Seems like more power, sounds good, too early to tell if gas mileage improved. I phoned in and asked if the kit was compatible w/2008 Yaris Sedan w/AT. Was told that it was. (Several other brands I had shopped stated for standard trans only.) I was able to adapt this to fit, but had to make a couple mods. The 90 degree 1/2 in. hose barb fitting for the crankcase breather would kink the hose. I bought a straight one which made the hose fit much better. I also had to bush the 5/8" hose to fit the 1/2" fitting. Your instructions said to tighten the 5/8" hose onto the 1/2" fitting...come on.... bad fit! The last mod was to make a bracket to mount the vacuum switching device to. I suppose it could have been tie-wrapped to the air intake pipe, but this is much neater. None of this is major, but does add considerably to installation time.
