I've just been out and taped it up with the reliable duck-tape,with the split been after the meter wouldn't a split there make some difference ? it's running fine,no drop in mpg ?

not really its just sicking in unfiltered air so all the dust and rubbish is getting sucked in thats all if the split was big enough it can caus esome issues
