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

That...is pretty sweet! Congrats...it looks really good!!

You should make or have a Smokey decal made for the tube! :D

Re: My Version Cold Air Intake
 
Thanks guys. Thats a good idea on the decal. Ive been into diesel perfomance for a long time so thats where oldsmokey comes from. Here is a picture of the twin turbo setup I built for my old truck
