News Pictures of the intake I built for H6 3.0

I welded up the last joints on this guy, and built the bracket. You can see my pictures here:

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

That last bend is hurting your airflow. What diameter pipe are you using? That swap is awesome!

Naturally, the performance of the intake would be increased if it was not constrained by the requirements that it fit in the car.

It's 3" thin wall aluminum tubing. Sourced it from this aviation company.

Obviously. I think you'd be better off with two gradual bends rather than the one sharp one though.

Both bends have the same radius.

That's not what I meant. I think if you did a gradual bend at the first weld off the throttle body, then another one going the other way where the current bend is, you'd be better off.

That may be so.

However, there is only about 3/4 inch clearance to the strut tower brace. A larger diamater would not fit.

If you started with 4" and narrow to 3" at the bend wouldn't you create better velocity?
The bend is what hurts the most but far far better then stock great job
