Default ABS (plastic) tubing for intake

Am I crazy to think I can use ABS piping for the intake? I know it's made for plumbing... but the intake is already plastic, so I don't think it should be a big deal. You can find inexpensive small-angle elbow joints, so I think it should work and ABS tends to be more flexible. Plus, it's good to almost 200 degrees, which should be fine as long as it's not too close to the block. I'd use PVC because it's a bit more rigid and I think melts at a higher temperature, but IF it does melt, the gasses are toxic...

Anyone ever used ABS before?

I think it would be fun to try to make some ABS intake piping. :-)

My 01 Legacy sports a 3" ABS intake attached to the stock airbox. I like it.

Been using ABS on mine for about 20,000 miles. No problems at all.

I ended up hacking half of the connection of the first pipe on the female as the panel filter didnt not fit over it smoothly, just a little bit, and I connected the last pipe from under the fender.

Really it was one of those "I'm bored" works. It makes a somewhat cool induction sound at 2500K rpm, or maybe it was there the entire time?

Final product (before cleanup)
