    Here's the link for the elbow. No clearance issues, The silicone hump hose was touching the power steering pulley at one point but after a little adjusting I was able to get it out of the way. This was the only clearance issue as the carbon fiber tube fits in there perfectly. As you can see it doesn't come very close to the radiator support. I did have to cut about an inch off of the carbon fiber tube and also about an inch off of the TB side (4" side) of the elbow.

    Re: Another DIY intake (Carbon fiber) Pics!

    I assembled my intake from ebay parts, and snatched up this carbon fiber tubing to replace the aluminum tube I had set in the first place...


    Thats how mine originally looked when I was done. I snatched up the elbow I use here from ebay. Cost me $20 on ebay. I pulled it out after that first picture and put my stocks on because I kept throwing lean codes thanks to the intake filter.

    I just now replaced my stock tubing with the carbon fiber tubing exactly like this but with the stock filter.


    Still retains heat, but honestly feels a bit less then the aluminum tube.

    Good find on the carbon tubing.

    I have a 90 degree 3/8 barb elbow I picked up from Home Depot. Drilled a hole to accomodate it in the big red elbow... then ring clamped it down, and RTV gasketed from the outside so it wouldn't leak any extra air in. Let it dry, etc... Works perfect. I been using the actual tubing for a while with no issues. The only issues I ran into was lean codes with the K&N filter. I thought it was possibly over-oiled at first, but after double and triple checking everything (cleaning MAF, checking filter, etc)... I've come to the realization that it'll need a tune with the intake filter on.

    Looks good! The elbows you guys both used look a little longer than mine, if you wanted to you could cut an inch or so off of the elbow (tube side) to expose more of the CF, Just an idea.

    Pffft. I know I do. I don't pop the hood really though, so I don't care so much.
