Default Help: Rudys Cold Side Intercooler Pipe Upgrade

https://www.rudysdiesel.com/product-p/cmi-04.htm

So I my factory plastic intercooler pipe cracked and bought this kit from Rudys cold side intercooler pipe upgrade kit; it arrived surprisingly fast (1.5 days basically so i'm happy there). I tried to install it last night but the thing literally wasn't going on air tight at the throttle valve. I'm wondering if you're supposed to reuse the white plastic insert piece where the snap ring goes on the factory plastic piece to get it air tight? I pushed the aluminum coupler/reducer as far back as possible but i never felt snug. I could literally wiggle and spin the coupler/reducer piece around the snout/barrel of the throttle body (even with the new Oring installed). It just doesn't seem air tight to me and not sure what to do. Obviously the silicone coupling pieces with band clamps are air tight when clamped down but the connection at the throttle valve isn't. Also the factory sensor that screws into the bung in the pipe seemed a little loose & not as tight/snug as the fit it had inside the plastic OEM piece. maybe i'm missing something in regards to both? no directions were included nor any pics that i can find of Rudys kit installed on a 6.7 (just the pics on their website). Any pics or input would be greatly appreciated!
