Now in the summer time when I had the filter much much lower in the engine bay I would get ambient air temps as my intake temp at idle on a 85 degree day.
My only concern would be an increased chance for hydrolocking offroad. I plan to hit the trails whenever possible and spontaneity is a dangerous trait of mine.

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

You can actually eliminate the hose and just put the breather filter where the hose starts. That's what most do anyways. Either wait it works though.

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

Should 2''x15' of header wrap be enough to cover this thing real well?

How long is your intake and what's the outside diameter?

I can give you a calculated yes or no

Beat ya to it but thanks for the offer. I think I'll have just enough. I did the math based on the straight pipe and the elbows are about .5'' thicker than the 3.5'' straights so there's gotta be some wiggle room.

28'' of pipe of 3.5'' diameter:
2∏1.75=10.99557429 x 28=307.8760801in^2

15x12x2=360in^2

360-308=52in^2 of wiggle room. Going to need it as parts will inevitably have to overlap.

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

Concerns

- will the duct tape melt?
- the pvc is not meant to be used under pressure, is the vacuum created too much for .25'' walls?
- might the PVC melt?
- hydrolocking
- friend said I absolutely need to just forget the PVC and go back to the stock setup but with the high flow filter inside the stock filter box

The last thing I need is a phucked up engine on a relatively new car so some solid advice would be good. Stock or this PVC setup?

Get rid of the duct tape. Cmon man.

It will be more than sufficient. Melting may be a problem if it is in very close proximity to anything. I never ran into any issues over 4 years, but at one point at a Etown race with mario, my white tube was glowing orange.

I know you're 17 and on a budget, but I beg you, please either wrap the PVC or ditch the setup altogether and make yourself a design out of Spectre bends or something. You don't want people rediculing you for using sh*tter pipe for an intake.
