If so, how did you secure it? It kind of moves around too easily, but perhaps it doesn't so much when the hood is actually closed....? The obvious location to tie it down is thru the small bracket coming off the block, but it gets hot and zip ties will probably melt. Coat hanger? Any other less ghetto ideas?

Hmmm. My ATP had one and my P-Flo has one and I don't mind it. My ATP one would come lose and rattle on my brake booster line but haven't had any problems with my P-Flo. Probably because I have the race extension, making it more sturdy. So the BSH just sits there? Doesn't it bounce on the brake booster lines?

technically yes it just sits there, mine is is actually harder to move than my p-fo was, the air shield really keeps a snug fit, the shape of this intake tube is meant to keep it away from the brake booster stuff, if you look at a front picture of it, it doesn't just go parallel with everything. kinda rises up around that area

Oh ok. Just seems weird. But then I guess to the OP, I would re-fit the intake on the turbo inlet and make sure that's tight.

mine is held in pretty tight by the clamp on the turbo inlet, one thing i did do however tho is got extra pieces of that rubber trim for the airbox from bsh, and put it around the cutout where the pipe goes which holds it in place pretty nicely
