After all the tales of whoa, surprisingly mine fit with lots of trials and small cuts at baffle side. No butchering and glass work. Appears it is designed to fit a real Lycoming and not a clone. Getting the filter in was challenging due to tight space. I had to take a lot off of the cowl and made a filter cover cap that tied in the snorkel side, side baffle and cover. RV-7A, Vans standard Lycoming IO-360 180 hp.
