custom cold air intake for the 3.7
 
so tomorrow i will be having a custom intake made for my 3.7..

i went to a local shop the other day, and started talking with some guy, i went for a quote, and to see if they could do it.

he will be making an intake that will have a 3.5 inch pipe and that will lead to the same location it is now, but allow in air from the left side of the grill to allow cold air in to the intake, he told me it would be the best to do that in case i decided to go off roading and get some mud or water where the filter would lay if it was a true cold air intake,

originally i told him i wanted it to extend all the way down and for it to be a true cold air intake taking air from in front of the passenger side wheel, he said he could do it for sure, but he wouldn't recommend it,

i have an appointment to get this done tomorrow, any comments? possible concerns? what you guys think?

Yeah how much? If he's making one for you, You should look into if anyone else wants one here too cause then it may be cheaper for you if you get a few guys to buy too.

lol who the fark is carlos? haha

well living in Canada its hard to find a good price online or even in stores for simply anything lol, i went to a few places and they quoted me $500 at one place, $450 at another, this guy is gonna charge me $350 out the door, so i don't mind too much, they do good work and its nice to be able to get their opinion and have them help me out..

i saw your post but i hear that the k&n is not a cold air, its more of just an intake, plus i am sure they would end up charging me to ship to canada as always lol,

honestly andrew call autoanything and see how much they charge to ship to canada!!!

there is no true cai for our 3.7 yet... the one you're getting is not a cai either. it is a short ram... you can also get a small tube from the grill and lead it to the cone filter and that is $10!!!!

i would def check to see how much autoanything charges for shipping to canada before buying this custom intake

Re: custom cold air intake for the 3.7
 
well that is why i am thinking i should make it a true cai and have it run all the way down, or at least further down then it is now, there is no true cai being sold but that is why i wanna get one made haha,

if it goes down all the way then it would def be worth it, and it would def be true cold air,

even if its 182 shipped like you said, ill have to find a place to install it for me, and its gonna cost at least 100 so roughly 282 in the end,

bro you can install it yourself! if you decide to go lower make sure you get a filter cover for it!!!
