Default Gimmick Motorsports Throttle Body Hose

I have a 2010 wrx and saw that Import Image was having a sale on these during black friday/ cyber monday, so I picked one up (as well as some other things). Upon arrival, the Gimmick Motorsports throttle body hose looked pretty solid and defnitely a lot longer, so I was excited to install it and be worry free. My stock hose had popped off once before and I just cranked the clamps real well and it hasn't been a problem, but I was installing gauges and had to take the TMIC off anyways so I figured "why not replace that stupid stock hose with one that fixes the problem?". Well, boy was I wrong. The Gimmick Motorsports throttle body hose does not fit in any way, shape, or form. I twisted and turned it a million different was and no luck. I ended up just using the stock throttle body hose at the end of the day. DO NOT BUY THE GIMMICK MOTORSPORTS THROTTLE BODY HOSE, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. It MIGHT be able to fit if you cut it in a few spots, but whats the point of that?

It is literally such a poor design and fit, I have no idea how Gimmick Motorsports even released this. I don't have the balls to even post this POS up for sale on the forums, its just getting thrown out.

This is in no way, shape, or form a hit at Import Image. I've bought a ton of stuff from them on mulitple occasions and they always have great service. I have not contacted them to be reimbursed because I don't see this to be their fault as they don't produce the part. I will be contacting them with my negative experience and suggest they stop selling this part all together as it is a waste of money.

Cliffnotes: Don't buy a Gimmick Motorsports throttle body hose. It does not fit.
