I heard that I could get the same effect on the performance of my car, by putting a flexible pipe in my car, as opposed to the CAI made by kore...Does that seem retarded to anyone out there? I am pretty car illiterate and usually spend a lot of money on things that don't deserve it but, I don't see how I can get the same amount of horsepower that way. Comments appreciated!<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

I got a 97 Tibby too and I made my CAI out of that flexable exhaust pipe. It works just the same, you get the same amount of power that you would get from a KORE CAI, but it's just a lot cheaper doing it this way. I payed $7.00 for my 18 inch piece, so I saved myself over $200 bucks. If you do it this way just make sure you get 2.5 inch dia. I noticed a big increase in low end torque after I put it on. Hope this helps you out.

It depends on what you are talking about. If you are hooking a pipe from the stock filter, it wont be as good. You will not get the airflow you would with a huge cone filter. Would still be better than none,tho.


2001 blue Tibby, leather, cd, custom racing stripes, etc. every option avail.

What I ment was attaching the pipe right after the mass air flow sensor. So what you would have is the rubber piece that attaches to the throttle body, then the piece with the mass air flow sensor in it, then attach the pipe and bend it so it goes all the way down between the radiator and the fender and have your filter on the end of the pipe. That's what I was talking about <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

If u have the money I would definately advise gettin the KORE CAI cause u save the hassle and u are guaranteed a fit and also u would be helping KORE to grow to offering more parts, but if u cant afford it u will get about the same gains but the KORE CAI would add a little more cause it has been tested and perfected wheras flexpipe isnt really made for that. Hope this helps w/ ur decision. I am making a DIY CAI but when and if I get the money I am gettin one from KORE. Cause I wanna see them succeed.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

My brother and I tried making our own intakes last summer. They looked like ass. I mean all I needed was a ghetto-r sticker and it would've been perfect. I just have a cone filter right now, but I'll probably get the SpeedState AOS intake cuz it looks more finished to me. But then again, I'm 1/4 rice<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
