Diy cai?

Has anyone made their own CAI? thinking about making one and incorporating the stock air box somehow for it. I saw this tubing on airram http://airram.com/product.php?catego...&productid=952 maybe use this? or aluminum tubing possibly

Re: Diy cai?

I made a CAI using PVC pipe. Covered it with heat tape and covered that with aluminum tape to keep it all together. I also added a ram air duct leading to the CAI.
Did this on my Crown Victoria. The only thing I dont like about CAI's is the fact that the higher flow filters allow more smaller particle size debris into the intake chambers.
