Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

Having run a PVC intake for a LONG time, I have to say that it really isn't worth it. It looks silly and has less-than-ideal functionality because of the way the pipes slip-fit together. You have these huge ridges in the tubing that prevent the smooth flow of air. You'd have to port it to get it smooth, or epoxy the gaps

For 16 bucks a pipe you could run Spectre piping, then 12/coupler w/ clamps. Trust me, it's not that much more expensive and looks SO much better.

The inside diameter doesn't change - it is smooth throughout. The coupling occurs on the outside of the pipe. When coupled, it is smnooth all the way through.

Hmmm....I'd like to see a picture. Mine was not flush at all on the inside. Not saying you're wrong , but mine was not like that.

Matt's intake is at least acceptable because it is wrapped.

I was able to get mine flush. I used a rubber mallet and my amazingly large biceps (<-- hehe, not really), but I was able to get the piping all the way to the 'stopper' when coupling.

Yeah the heat wrap definitely makes it look more 'legit' than white PVC piping when you pop the hood.

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

Haha thanks for the comments and advice everyone. I just had to push hard enough and the pipes closed the gaps at all the elbows so it's pretty much smooth throughout.

The PVC is connected to the TB using the end of the stock rubber (I think it's rubber?) hose that connected the air box to the filter. Duct taped it on to the pipe and melted the tape to make it air tight and clamped it to the TB.

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

Still looking for good tape locally before ordering online.

Need to find some good material to keep the heat from the engine from heating the air in the pipe as much as possible. Considered using pipe insulation from Lowes but I don't want to end up letting hot air in and trapping it.

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

And another thing. I bought the materials to make another intake. If anyone's interested in having me make them one send me a PM.

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

nick my only suggestion to this intake is to make a heat shield similar to the one on the k+n's so that way you don't have too much warm air going into the filter... other wise great job bro!
