Ghetto Intake

Yeah, I'm too cheap to pay $250 for an intake. So here is version one of my intake for my car. I'm going to be painting the chromed stuff black or green, depending on where it is in the intake. The red coupler will be changed to a black one later. I'll also make a custom air box for it. I just slapped it together earlier to get it done while I had some free time. 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...

Re: Ghetto Intake

3 of the parts. The filter (I had a K&N that I've lost somewhere, brand new), the MAF adaptor, and the 4"-3" coupler. The ABS pipe (heat resistant) and black coupler came from Lowe's. I'll paint the ABS pipe green soon enough.

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.

Re: Ghetto Intake

It looks like something you should market....really! My only question is, they never had a green filter? We have to change that market on color selection

Re: Ghetto Intake

We'll see! Thanks for all the compliments. It's a work in progress, as are most things.

I've already got plans to make my own hood lift shock mounts and not buy a kit. If I can make them myself I'll cost me less than half the price of Redlines. Any chance you guys with Redlines can measure the OAL of the shock and the length of the protruding piston? Don't worry, I'll show you guys how to make your own set with part numbers if I do it.

So the MAF adaptor works with the car?

Re: Ghetto Intake

The stock MAF is to the right of where the intake tube attaches to the intake box. All you can see is a little rectangle where it was, I removed it prior to this pic.

No codes so far and yes the adapter works. It's a 4" adapter but comes with 3.5" and 3" inserts to reduce the flow around the sensor. I went with 3" because it looks the closest to the factory size.

Re: Ghetto Intake

I have two Grand Prix's with supercharged engines.

Nick: Nowhere. It came from the depths of a pit in my skull called my imagination. Then I formulated it into an idea of what was feasible. I'm very mechanically inclined, this isn't my first rodeo.

Re: Ghetto Intake

Yeah, I do plan to later on. Got some ideas rolling around, but not a lot of cash for modding with vacation time almost here.

I'll kick in a bottle opener or two.

Re: Ghetto Intake

I'll do a write up later when I have to take it out, so you guys can see everything and I can actually catalog it and take a measurement on the length of the pipe.

---------- Post added at 10:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:04 PM ----------

Yes, the intake now makes a suck/whistle sound when you first get on the throttle or let off. It's almost like a small BOV sounds. Really neat, never heard one do that. At WOT above 3k the engine roars through it. Way louder in the cabin. I think I hear it over the stock exhaust now.

Please tell me when you do your exhaust they will be straight pipes no mufflers.

Looks good +1 I would have believed you bought it.

Re: Ghetto Intake

Short Vid of 1-2 Shift

Hope that works. It's a video I made right after I installed it, but later that night. Wedged my camera into the passenger headrest and took off down some backroads near the house. You can't here the whistle sound there though, windows were down as well.

Re: Ghetto Intake

Version 2 is about to be made. I came up with an idea to retain the factory PCV to Intake hardline.
