That is odd. I'd send Bill an email or PM to see what he suggests. However, if the packing tape works.....

I used 3 or 4 coats of clear Lustrekote spray (dont remember exactly). Tightened up the tube to take out some of the slop with out being too snug. I have packing tape on my Edge's wing tube and I have not had any issues with it.

I ended up going with a OS GT55 on this plane and left the pipe a tad over 11" (dont remember exact length) and lengthened the tunnel by 2 inches which was the easy part. With the GT55 I needed a 3/4 rise in the header which I ended up bending a 0 drop solid header. The 10.25" pipe I was originally measuring with was off my edge which has a healthy 3/4 gap between the pipe and the can and I was trying to avoid lengthening the tunnel.

The K&S mount I used ended up peeling open the can as I did not put the mount in the center where it is thicker. The pipe thread tape I used to take out the tinny sound of a can filled in the gap and I never thought anymore of it until it was too late. I have switched to the wood mount style from DA until I get a chance to fix my other can.

See, I knew I saw that pic of the can going past the tunnel end some where, looks great! I have been flying mine with the pitts (it needed the nose weight anyway) but I have saved the can for the 100cc (which I just started assembly on). Really like the carbon fiber plate, I've got some lying around from a couple of robot projects, don't know why I didn't think of making up a custom mount from that. Pure genius!
