So after a lot of thought, I decided to make my own intake. I figured I can start out with a Short Ram Intake, maybe sometime I'll run it down to the bumper for some cold air. Let me know what you think!
Doesn't seem that hard after you explained. I alredy have the cone filter, bought a good local brand. The problem is that here we dont have universal intake parts. But I've read that Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tubes do the job. I'll have to improvise.Hello! I believe I can help you out here. I made my own short ram for about $40 and a little bit of cutting. There is a couple ways to go about it:
1. I went to my local car parts store and found a bunch of spectre universal intake parts, I picked up a cone filter, 6" straight tube, and a 3-2.5" silicone reducer (they only sold 3" pipe). Because our intake is 2.5" you cannot screw the MAF into the 3" pipe. My solution was to cut out the tube in the stock airbox where the MAF sits and put that back on before the throttle body.
2. If you can find 2.5" tubing online you could buy a MAF adapter with the other intake parts I mentioned and not have to chop up the stock airbox. This should also be significantly cheaper then $500.
Ill post some pictures of my set-up when I get back home tonight. Should clear up any questions.
Great! I'll be waiting! No hurry, though.I tired to snap some cellphone shots but it’s a little dark to see what is going on. I’ll grab my girlfriends camera in the morning and get some quality pictures. I have the air box as well so you can see where to cut it.
