Angry I need some help!

Ok, I have riced out my WRX.. =( I added the Dragon Intake onto my car.. I dont like how the filter is sitting all so close to the boost controller and all crammed up in the engine.. the piping seems to be super long cuz my filter is all smashed up on the fender wall and the hood is pushing the filter down by 1".. does anyone else has or know about this problem?

I will put up some pix later of how it looks like.. my brother has the digital cam.. so sorry about not being discriptive enough. I will post up some pix and show you that the MAF is upside down (I think Weapon-R messed up on the welding of the pipe and the MAF mount, the MAF was pointing the opposite direction of air flow..., so I had to twist the pipe til the MAF was underneath). The 1st pipe that connects the MAF pipe and the stock intake pipe is just too long (it should be about 2" shorter so that there's room to fit the intake right in the middle where the stock intake box use to be and not all crammed under the boost control cover.

I also ordered the Weapon-R Cold Air box.. but I will have to see how and where the hole is cut on the box for the piping to pass through. I also noticed that these Dragon Intakes have the optional RAM AIR kit.. and it attaches to the filter ... (cough cough MY ASS! cough).. just looking at the filter, there is no way to attach a ram air kit onto the filter..

I also get a loud klanking sound from the engine bay (wastegate closing?)..I hear the turbo cutting off after you let off the throttle, but sometimes there's a heavy klank.. I just assume it's the wastegate or the filter hitting the inner fender wall. Is this normal after an intake upgrade?

If anyone knows, just Post.. need some help here.
