Default Any DIY rotated CAI piping?

I have an old style perrin silicone rotated intake. problem is that is draws alot of hot air and the car starts to idle very high trying to get a cool charge.

I dont want to spend 500 dollars on the new perrin pipes as I am using a TMIC with my rotated kit. I plan on building one myself.

Show us your custom made rotated intake pipes. and the materials you used.

My son has a rotated 30r with a cold air fg inclosure that draws from the scoop and the fenderwell. It uses a 3 inch 180 ss tubing and the box is in the corner by the strut tower. It has a fg piece that is mounted in the scoop bolt holes on the hood that goes over on top of the box with a rubber seal. He is Wittmer25 but I don't know how much time he spends here now. Sorry but he also has a fmic and thats why we used the scoop for the air.

I will try to get him to post some pictures. I have some but it's his car. I also built the fg shroud between the fmic and the bumper so all the air is forced through the fmic, it also has a billet grill with mesh behind it to protect the fmic from rocks.

I will try and get the pictures on here soon. The filter box is bolted to the side of and above the inner fender panel. We had to cut some holes in the side panel above inner fender panel for air to pass through from the bumper to the filter box. The hood has a plenum bolted to its underside that channels air from the scoop to top of the filter box when the hood is closed. We made a foam gasket that seals the plenum to the filter box. The roated turbo intake is 3" tubing that is routed like a backwards question mark. The filter is a K&N type cone filter and mounted on the curled end of the question mark (?). The turbo would be where the period is. It really probably doesn't give a ram air effect, but it does reduce the air intake temperature below the under hood temp. It doesn't appear to be restrictive either.
