Uhhh.... I hope you have a filter in there somewhere!! That's the biggest concern I see from what little information you gave us.... I'm gonna go ahead and assume that it's simply hidden in the fender for now though. You have a 2001, that uses a MAP sensor doesn't it?... that's good, otherwise you would need to worry about securing a MAF sensor in the intake somewhere.

Other than the above warnings, it should all work for now. The 'dryer vent hose' is metalic so it will reflect some radiant heat from the engine. I think the thickness (or lack of thickness) would be a future concern so you don't allow too much heat to get to your air. Not bad though....

He has the stock filter in the BIG airbox on the TB..

Did you notice any difference with your setup? Looks like for a temp solution...

That is pretty much the exact same thing I did for my first intake. Can't hurt!

I did the exact same thing except I used some high temp fiber reinforced ducting that Pegasus Racing sells- it's similar the flexible orange brake ducting that's used on race cars except it has a lower temp rating. I've had it on for over six months with absolutely no problems- it's cheap and works great!

See how you like it and then replace it with piping. Does it dry clothes?

Ooooh, the clear look! How dirty is that hose now? The function is there though! I like it.
