Default check out my custom intake

here's my custom intake that first began as an akimoto short ram and was converted to a cobb type design for only 20 bucks ( mind you that the intake came with the car when i bought it). Works pretty well...i can definitely feel more top end power.

I like it...does it collect leaves while it's raining ? Creativity flows.

thanks for all the comments everyone! I actually just finished my final adjustments to the intake. i had to rework some of the bends to avoid the fuel lines. I notice more pull from 2k rpm's and on. It's noticably faster getting up to redline and it's got this high pitch sound to it....different from when it was a short ram. Hey for only 20 bucks it's all about go, no show!

Bought all the parts at home depot in the venting/plumbing department....try it out and let me see you guy's inventions....

the plumbing is 6 inches which covers up the big ass cone filter....i don't think the plumbing hits to hood although i did put a few strips of duck-tape just incase rattling begins.

That looks like a$$.
But I defenetly see the usefulness of it. If it wasn't a dryer vent and it was a smooth peice of polished aluminum or ss it would be like a resonated cai. IMHO form followed function here.

You are right. It does look effective. I don't understand why Cobb and the others are so expensive. Kudos for saving alot of money. Don't take my 'a$$' comment to heart, you have done well, you got the job done, you got some performance, and there is some extra scratch for you.

Thumbs up Nice

Nice job on making that into a cold air setup. The part where the heater vent connects to the intake filter, is that sealed off some kind of way or is it opened up?

I tried using flexible heater vent on a JC Sports intake in my XT6 to make a cold air type setup and was unsuccessful. The filter was simply to big. Always props to the 'poor man's' intake.

actually since i've posted the pictures....i've reworked some of the bends in the piping and sealed off all of the seams between every component of the piping. ALso the venting pipe is 6" and i shoved the cone filter inside of it....which took some work but it's sealed off and held tight by a clamp.

There is no small pipe that extends into the fender...the rubber reducer is the only thing that goes into the fender yielding a 3 inch inlet at the very end. i sealed if off into the fender hole with some tape (very "ghetto") and it works well now...and there is no more rattling.

Thanks for all of the comments everyone
