i am starting a project for a cheap intake........so far i bought an air intake filter $25 at kragen auto, the filter is adjustable it has 3inch,3&half inch,and 4inch abjustment,i put it stait on the mass air flow(MAF) stock adapture, and i also bought a valve cover breather from kragen for $10..so far it makes a dramatic change, even though i am using the stock plastic intake pipe, i the intake is unheard untill alittle over quarter way into the pedal and when u punch it the car sound awsome, the car odvesily has more torque and horsepower when over 2 or 3 thousand rpm...i will post back when i put the rest together...................to be continued......................................................[wrenchin]

this i a really popular thing to do. most guys call it a stealth intake. do you have plans to try and make a longer tube to make it a cold air intake?

yeah they make an extension tube that runs off the intake filter already hooked up and runs it to an intake filter that will be sitting behind my bumper..........

that is not really a cold air intake. that is just a tube to try and feed cold air into the filter. the problem with that is the filter is still sitting in the hot engine bay sucking mostly hot air in. to make a cold air intake you would have to build a pipe to carry the filter down to the bottom of the engine then fab a splash graud, to keep water out. the pipe would be better if made out of plastic as it does not conduct heat, like metal.

i would not invest time or money inot the little tube kragen sells.

I had a cold air that ran in front of driver-side tire, behind the bumper, I liked it, but I just put a short ram and I like it better, except I thnk a carbon-or fiberglass hood, with a small scoop is my next project, but seal the scoop to an air-box type cover to seal it for a true, short ram-cold air intake...
