makes enough sense....the guy who was supposed to get me the PVC didnt come through, so i'm gonna probably do something this weekend...IDK

Re: Homemade CAI for 3.7?

here is my homebrew CAI.
Since the pics, I have made a strap that bolts to radiator support. Seeing that it is not very flexible, it probably wont last.

Still trying to figure out insulating the tubing.

Re: Homemade CAI for 3.7?

it seems like there are quiet a few bends there but still very nice looking...i was curious if there was any benefit from going this route: take the stock air box and cut a 3" or 4" hole in it and run tubing from there to a cold drawing air section and just adding a high flow air filter to it to allow better air flow...would that be a good idea?
