Default Yet another homemade intake (pics)

So I was bored and decided to go to lowes and get some stuff to make an intake. It's a 20" piece of 2" PVC that I sprayed black. I used the OE flex fitting for the top. You can't tell from the pics but there foam stripping wrapped in black electrical tape around the end that enters the fenderwall to keep it from rattling. Probably no power power gains but a cleaner looking engine bay and a really sweet deep sound at WOT made it worth the $5.



And a pic of my iPod install just for the hell of it:

for a better seal ie heat insulation at the seam between the pipe and plastic tubing, you could use a beer coolie to cover that seam. a beer stein coolie should slide right over that with no problem.

Lookin good tho.

btw. do you also find the faux walnut burl trim really really tacky? i got disgusted by mine within a month of owning it and scoured junkyards for the plain black pieces.

LOL. I took it out when I was wiring the iPOD and then I couldn't get it back in because of all the extra wiring. I was running late for something so I put it off. It's back in there now though. The two screws holding the ashtray slide are a pain to get in.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

That looks good, what filter are you using with that? Or is the filter in the black box directly behind the engine?

The filter is in the stock airbox on the back of the engine.

Looks good… I like the ipod mount too…

Hey I just noticed in your engine bay pics, that your powersteering setup is very similar to a wrx style. I know the BD/BG use a power steering reservoir mounted on top the compressor, but yours is moved to a dedicated reservoir which is mounted off on the fender-well… just like a wrx…

Good to know for those doing swaps…at least for sourcing parts that is…

brushed aluminum trim kits are available for 00-01 legacys. ie: those with the centre console cupholders. i havent seen an installed kit tho but online retailers do have them.

Long story. I bought the PocketDock from http://www.sendstation.com/. From that I ran the 1/8 inch => RCA cable (included) to my headunit. The problem was that the input for my headunit has a Front and Rear input(they double as line outs. I used 2 Y adapters to make it work. The problem with this was that I couldn't control the volume or anything. That's why the cable is now running straight into the headphone jack on the iPOD. Everything has to be controlled from it and it bugs the hell out of me. My next purchase is going to be an Alpine HU with iPod controller.

The mounts are a ProClip mount specifically for the Legacy and a ProClip iPod Mini adapter, both from http://densionusa.com/ .
