i can cut the intake into 2 pieces and get another pipe from homedepot to finish it... u guys think it would work?anything im missing? It has the maf air sensor plug right there lol. I wanna see if this works. wish me luck.

instead of doing that
buy this stuff
http://www.powerflowracing.com/3modular.html

You can buy the sections you need and make any design intake you want..stuff is cheap..its like 6-10bucks a section and works great..made out of a compositie material so does not get hot like metal.
I have this stuff on my XRunner and works great..and can change up design anytime..I already made 2 outta this thing and total cost was 100bucks for everything

Hey guys. Just wanted to let you know that i have a few intakes for sale. I put some up on ebay. Polished tubing, K&N Style filter all couplers and clamps needed to install. Makes a really nice engine note when the throttle is opened up, yet still nice and quiet for daily city driving.

heres a pic of the kit.



if anyone is interested let me know, or you can check them out on ebay.

Thanks a lot,
Chris

I purchased the BOMZ intake....cut the piping, installed it....nothing special....increase in growl is minimal....no power gain (none that I can feel) and plenty of heat soak....I can drive the car for 5 minutes and the piping will be hot......booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Yes, appreciate the real skinny info, not bench racer dreams, advertising make believe, etc.

Heat soak is a major issue, aluminum piping being a terrible material under the hood of a car. It is great for intercooler piping in major airflow area as can be cooled by ambient air. Inside the engine compartment SS is generally better as it reflects heat better than steel and far better than aluminum.

I like to run all piping as far away from heat sorces as possible and then use insulation on the worst offenders when I can.
