Default Connect Turbo inlet to AFM

I need a 90 degree sillicone elbow that connects the turbo inlet to the AFM. Something similar to the U- pipe from the greddy kit but only 90 degrees, since it is with a GT2554R turbo and the greddy u -pipe would not work. The air fliter will not fit if I use a u-pipe, and I can only squeeze it if I use a flexible 90 degree. elbow. Anyone had this issue before?

I just bought some silicon couplers from these guys and found them to be of high quality. Price is right too.
