And I also thought "ghetto" would be a lot worse...this looks legit! Be sure to update us all with more pics as you make the other changes you have planned. Your mindset of saving money and doing any mechanical stuff you can yourself reminds me so much of my boyfriend. That's a great trait to have though, you can think outside the box!!

Re: Ghetto Intake

Yes, the adapter is a 9705 Spectre. However, they make another one that fits a bunch of vehicles and is 3" tubing. If you just want an intake and don't have plans to make it bigger, you can grab that for a nicer finished look (no necking down of the tubing) for $10 more. This adapter was $30 instead of $40, so I grabbed it... yeah, penny pinching.

I've always thought outside the box. Unfortunately most my ideas don't get created because I lack the tools needed or other means to create it.

Re: Ghetto Intake

Cool. I agree on going as cheap as possible. I have a heat shield that was a spare from my brothers 2011 camaro and I think I can make it work so I might just try to make a cheap intake. Not looking to buy one for 200 plus bucks because eventually I will supercharge this one and it would be wiser to go cheap on the intake since it would just be replaced. Thanks!

Re: Ghetto Intake

I grabbed the 9705 today. My brother had a brand new heat shield and all the fittings from his 2010 RS Camaro. He bought a K&N intake when he first got the car and they had issues with the first run of these intakes. SO K&N sent him another one and made him cut the MAF/Intake tube and filter in several places so it could not be reused instead of sending it back to them. They told him to keep the other parts as spares or toss them. I am going to use them . It will take a little fabrication and modding but it will all fit. I will neck down the intake tube as you did too. I opted for the 4" maf with the inserts as you did due to price and also in case I eventually tune and go with a 4" pipe / bigger throttle body etc... Keep you posted. I still need to run to HD and get the PVC today.

Re: Ghetto Intake

ok so first, Thank you Sanguin for the pics, idea and info.

I made mine for 48 bucks. I am still working on the shield that I will modify that came from my brothers 2010 Camaro. It needs to be tweaked a bit and I will post up on that later. Anyway. Got the intake built today and put about 50 miles on it with no codes. Went WOT with it and also lots of stop and go. I used some parts from Sanguin's build and also parts that I had laying around. All said and done if you were to build this and buy everything that I used it would run you $70 bucks. I have a donor heat shield as I mentioned and will mod that but I bet you could build a heat shield for under $30.

I used a larger filter which I got at Pep Boys for 34 dollars tax included (Right now Pep Boys has $5 OFF any Spectre air filter)


I made my pipe a bit shorter so it is closer to the factory inlet for air. Also, From the pic view it looks like it is hittng the brake lines and Block but it clears it by a good inch or so.
So here it is:

Re: Ghetto Intake

Thanks again. Hey I saw on the F150 forum someone made a heat shield from an office style plastic garbage can. I can send you the link if it will help you with some ideas.

Re: Ghetto Intake

You should not have told me that... I was actually trying to find a plastic battery box someone was getting rid of. Now I have Rubbermaid containers dancing in my head!

Re: Ghetto Intake

Even though I have a metal one to cut I just could not resist. Took me all of 10 minutes. $5 Rubbermaid can at HD. Not finished. Going to test it with heat for a week before I put the trim on it but it was 100 degrees outside today and I drove it for 10 miles in stop and go and it held up fine.

Re: Ghetto Intake



finished. I drove it another 10 miles last night in hot weather and it was fine so I finished it up. Had to trim a tiny bit to get the molding on and to fit well i.e. round the corners. The temp difference is very noticeable even with just my hand on each side of the intake shield with the hood open in the garage. All in to this project for $82 and didnt use anything from my brothers kit except for one coupler at the tb side.

In retrospect I could have cut the garbage can to fit even tighter to the fan shroud and followed the line of the radiator support cover closer right up to the shroud. I could get another can for 5 bucks and do that but I think it is fine the way it is. It is far enough over that it gets all the air from the stock cold air inlet and I am quite happy with how it turned out.

Great job with the intake! I love that Gotta have it Green too. As soon as I get a picture of the Green GTS GT Convertible with the new "wide body kit" now being built at Shelby I'll forward it to you.

That would be awesome. The Shelby widebody is nice in that it just swells the wheel areas... some guys extend the rockers too and it just doesn't look right.

When I was younger I used to drive a 95 VW Jetta. I remember my friend at the time thought a CAI would look good unfortunately I didn't want to shell out the $$$ for a specially made intake tube cause VW liked to make things more difficult then they should be. So took the air box off, took the stock air filter out, and just hooked the air filter up. It kind of sounded like an intake but a cross between stock and a CAI. It stayed like that for 4 years too.

You can do this with your stock air tube as well. Simply use a dremel tool to cut off the sound/muffler box. Use fiberglass to cover the hole, sand and paint the tube black using krylon fusion paint (for plastics). Keep the stock filter box, or rplace it with a cone filter.

Thread like this are great! You do the work yourself, and save a ton of coin. And the flow characteristics are plenty for the V6, provided you don't go the route of supercharging.

It's a selection of parts that look decent and get the job done. I think once I get the box done, it'll make it look more professional since it won't be just hanging out there. Thought hard about how to rig the PCV so it would look decent. Even there, there is room for improving imo.
What type of MAF adapter? I got on from auto zone and it doesnt fit

Manuals have one additional air hose, it's a PCV line. I hid an elbow in the throttle body coupler on the bottom and just ran a hose to the PCV valve. If I could find a fitting that would let me use the factory quick connect fittings, I'd do that. Might try it later. Without further adieu, the $55 intake system...

Or, get a longer hose and splice in an oil separator that you can mount to the strut tower. That'd look sweet.

There's a version 2 thread. I already fixed it and I utilize the factory hardline, including the quick disconnects.

I was able to get the stock hard line to work with a piece that came in one if the Spector kits. I put mine together using aluminum lengths of tube that can be bought from Spector as well. I only did that because I could not find other suitable piping that was not 10' long for $30.

Its hard to see the hard line here but you can see the whole intake from here...



This is a close up shot of the fitting I used to connect the PCV hard line to the intake. I had to drill a hole in one of the intake pipes and inserted a rubber gromit that comes with one of the kits. If you look below the piece I am holding you can see the one that is actually installed on my intake...

Definitely going to give this a shot for $70-90. It seems do-able for us that are mechanically average...
