    Another DIY intake (Carbon fiber) Pics!

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1339199600.324574.jpg
    So I decided that the stock squeeze tube needed to go. I have a more performance intake which is just the stock tube, with their heat shield and a k&n filter. I've seen threads where guys have done DIY intakes, but complain about heat soak with the aluminum tubing that they use. Hopefully the $25 eBay carbon fiber 3.5" tube will solve the heat soak issues over the aluminum tube and not to mention it looks a ton better IMO. Still waiting on the 90 degree silicone elbow to come in the mail. If you guys want I can post the links to where I got the parts.

    nice vizual mod right thurr... good luck with the install you're going to gouge the crap out of it on the radiator support.. i would painters tape it up before install to protect it then remove it later

    heat soak? hahah air is pulling through there to fast to lose any density.. IAT temp wont change

    Looks really nice but an intake tube doesn't really get heat soaked that I know of.

    I was just going by info from another thread. One guy said he was losing about 2 hp on the dyno due to the aluminum tube getting hot. He then put the plastic tune back on and it was back to normal. Idk. well anyway it will stay cooler than the aluminum tube whether it matters or not. That damn last piece didn't come yet hopefully I'll have it on Monday.

    Looks really nice, I wouldnt mind making one like that myself. The 2 horsepower is not something I would ever even consider, but it does have a nice visual effect.

    Hey, on a Honda Civic that is like a 4% boost in HP.

    Where did you get the elbow?

    I'd like to add this to my Lingenfelter intake.

    Any clearance issues?
