Intake

Is it true I can use PVC pipes for a cheap intake?

If so how would I do it?

I've seen it before. Get some rubber couplings and some metal straps an form a CAI out of the pipes. Then get a drop in filter and clamp it to the end of you're homemade CAI. Clamp and seal it good though

Thanks, figured I'd try it out since my car is lacking in that department.

A drop in filter costs around $40 for a good one. But I honestly would recommend you get the $80 CAI from AM. I have it and I'm happy with it. But if you do the PVC intake take pictures

you can buy a spectre cone filter for $25 which will do just fine for this project. if i can find my friends write up i'll link it. it's pretty easy to do

I built one, never put it on my car cuz I got a cai as a gift literally the day I finished it lmao

But like islo said, go with a spectre, you'll save 20-25 bucks over k&n and pep boys sells every size possible

On the link I didn't see anything about the MAF sensor. Does that mean its just the filter that he clamps on to MAF housing? I thought OP wanted the whole intake. Like straight to the throttle body

Your car needs it to function properly. It measures how much air is going through your intake

Yeah, but I wouldn't trust it. It's an expensive piece and its sensitive as hell. It might not even work

Try Craigslist. Lots of people part out their cars when they can fix them or when they wreck them.

Thanks, I'm almost done putting this thing back together but these little details are slowing me down.
