Tegiwa airbox problem sealing to maf holder.

I have a Tegiwa airbox. Problem is I can't get the maf holder section, the metal pipe, to seal against the airbox when doing it up. The very slight curve in the box means nearly a mm gap. Maybe half a mm but still enough to not seal properly.
If I do it up even tighter it might crack. Shall I use sticky foam round the maf holder face that meets the airbox to make it airtight?
Are all the boxes like this? It's not major but I shouldn't have to DIY bodge to make it right.

Bought it new?

If so send it back as it should fit flush. I remember mine having the tiniest curve on outer edges but the inside was flat, flush and sealed.
