Re: My Version Cold Air Intake

Its a silicone boot from the throttle body to the 4 inch pipe. I welded up some fittings and ground down the welds for a smooth look

I purchased some various bends and welded them together and ground the welds flat so there not visable to make it look like one single pipe. Its not an airaid

Re: My Version Cold Air Intake
