Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

clean up that wrap job. wet it first, its more pliable and conforms to the pipe better, when it dries it will fit perfectly.

Ah, a good idea! I don't like how it doesn't quite fit all that well over the elbows. That should help out a lot

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

Did you wet the wrap? If you wet it and pull as you wrap it will fit nice and tight.
Soak it in water for a while grab an end and start rapping as it sits in the water.

Came out good!!

Thanks for the tip, Tig suggested this as well. I will have to do this after school tomorrow. Hopefully the PVC cement didn't stick too well!

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

nice job. you might want to consider tapering the edge of the coupling/joint, by sanding it down a bit. that will help to make your wrap job easier and the outcome that much nicer. its all about the prep.

Re: Today's Project - PVC CAI

Still need to take the time to rewrap it...been lazy lately.

I saw the thread where a guy made a nice heat shield out of a plastic trash cash and I think this may be the way I make mine too. Should I used a different material? Should I cover the outside with something to keep the heat out better than just the plastic?

But looking at his design I'm wondering where the intake is supposed to draw the air from? I want something that will protect my filter from any offroad dirt/dust/water but I don't want to suffocate the thing. Where would the best place be to leave an area open to suck in air?

I'm interested in getting a ventilating hood down the road (I love the design Odivious is working on!) but I don't want to hydrolock from letting rain water in onto the filter.

Its all about compromise,,,

My WJ is lifted too - yes, I wheel it from time to time- and honestly I have it behind the drivers side headlight. It is close enough to allow incoming air via the grille to come in.

Honestly, if you are that worried about hydrolocking you have bigger things to worry about going wrong. Your WK is not a submarine, this is coming from someone who's seen enough nice vehicles ruined in a single pass through some water that nobody expected to be that serious.

Ditch that filter and get either a Foam (www.unifilter.com) or one of those oil-free filters.
