Those who have installed this snorkel, could you please check if you have the same issue.

There's a big gap on the high mount gasket, where the arrows are pointing:

A paper makes it very easy to the other side:

FYI, the picture that you shared does not allow for clear understanding of the issue.

You may want to post other pictures.

On mine, where the part of the cowl where the rubber "hose" connects has a gap because the weak assed plastic it goes around starts to collapse inward when you tighten the hose clamp. It leaves about a 1/16th inch gap there where water can enter the intake.

Mine has the same thing. However I did get a hose and sprayed the gap and very little water got in. Almost nothing.

Not that the gap should be there, but at least in an event of water splashing over the hood, it should be fine.
