Anyone here making their own intake out of pvc?
Ya... he has it right... if you JUST want it functional... get the homebrew... but if you want it show quality like me... ur gunna need a professional tube stuff like that.opie34705 said:Yeah. It was cheap, functional, LOUD, easy, and it doesn't melt like K&N says it does. I have been driving in Houston heat with it for a while and it is doing just fine. I painted it to match my truck (silver) and had to make some brackets to support the cone filter, but it is otherwise doing very well. I still have a stock exhaust (removed 3rd cat) and the engine is now the loudest part of the truck. I would recomend it to anyone who is thinking about getting the Shaker Hood on their truck, but don't have the $1000 to do so yet. I can't attest to the HP gains from the 3'' homebrew intake, as I changed to Autolite plugs, 180 t-stat, and bored out my throt body at the same time. All of those mods have really brought my '01 4.7 4X4 to life.
I put back the hat (square part with the 2 chambers) and the sounds decreased and engine likes it!Conman said:but I will say..this mutha is loud...almost drowns out the Flowmaster at WOT..I dare say it's amost annoying...sounds like the truck is bogging to sometimes..like with half throttle accelaration..anyway I'll give it a few more days before I decide if I'm keeping it or not...it only cost me $22 at the Depot.
