Alright I am sick and tired of PVC CAIs. I am sorry but they are just plain ugly and look ghetto. Here is a good step by step on building your own. Of course it was done ao a civic so you will have to figure out your own angles but if you can figure that out with PVC then you can do it here too.

Also I would not take everthing this guy says as gospel but it will help you build a better looking/less ghetto intake that will perform quite nicely.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

the only difference between mine and his is that I used 2 90degree bends (as opposed to the 3' to 3' connectors), and 2 1ft pieces of PVC, which puts the air filter behind where the fog lights would be... then I grinded out the opening vent cover to allow more air to flow through...

And neither I nor many people think it's ghetto

ok maybe a little but still... I paid $25
That'll hold me until KORE comes out with their stage 3

I ended up using the pipe for a 94 eclipse. it fit in the engine bay fine, put a K&N cone on it, braced it and viola...works great. Whole sha-bang cost me about 60 bucks.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

If you bought the pipe like he did it would only cost a few more dollars then PVC and it looks a hell of alot better (IMO). No flush handle needed if you build it like this.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

what about exhaust pipe?

it goes as big as 2 and 3/4 inches...

a little easier to cut maybe... and they have angles or bend it yourself pipe... and the bend it yourself pipe, once you have the angles, you could fill the inside with some bondo filler something and make it nice and smoth...

??

You can buy Mandrel bent exhaust pipe up to 3" wide through JC Whitney. That is what the article suggests using<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Doing it the way it says in the article will cost you up to about $20 more over all it looks 100Xs better. If you do a good job and take your time you could have a show qulity CAI but if you build it out of PVC and try to show all the judges will do is <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0> there <img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> off.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

hehe, i didn't realize what the pipe was. you can get the same pipe at pe boys or autozone.

it doesn't quite look as shiny as the ones they had in the pics, but a nice layer of some heat resistant silver, blue, white, red, orange, whatever color to match your **** paint, would be just fine.

i think i red this article the day after i got my tib, and found the fxtreme forums a few weeks later hehe.

I have a question, I thought the article was great thanks to AUTOBOT<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>, but my question is first I have a 97 Tib. auto. Would I have to do more as far as installing the home made intake because I have an auto or not?

I looked at my engine and I understand the article, but my 2nd question is that I have a tube run from the intake manifold pass the throttle body to the intake tube what would I do with this tube and the sensors that connect to the stock system after I take it out??

The tube coming from the intake manifold would I install that like the one going to the valve cover?? I think I do but I'm not sure.

Thanks guys for any help you can give me. It's the first time I'm going for speed and not just looks <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

You don't have to do anything different with the intake on an auto vs a manual other then possibly using a different design due to the size of the tranny. As far as the hoses and sensors you will have to reinstall all of them into the new intake. You can not leave them disconnected.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

The fewer bends in the pipe the better. Air doesn't like to take corners. Also, don't change the diameter of your piping. UNLESS you're making it bigger then back to normal size. That will create a venturi (a vacuum) which pulls more air in <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> 90's are BAD for CAI's

BTW, hella good find Kirk!

Topic Resurrection:

Forgive me if this has been asked before...

From a DIY perspective, could this procedure be applied to a 2000 Accent?

Oh yeah forgot to ask... so what's your suggestions on factoring in the air flow sensor... on this new exhaust pipe?


(note: this is just a test!)

I did something similar to this on my Tib when I had it but I used an itake from another car. Well the MAS would not fit in the stock hole so I drilled it out a little bigger and then put the little rubber piece that was in the hole of the stock intake on the new one. Then the MAS fit snugly in place.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

was it CAI or a regular intake??? I was just wondering if anyone thought of it because I ran across it this past weekend when making adjustments to my "PVC CAI" hee hee <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif

AUTO... might want to consider tell these folks that adapting a 3" intake (exhaust pipe) to a 2 3/4" (at best) air flow sensor may be harder than it looks.

I read that info way back when I first got my tib and it would work great if you can find an extra 1/4" to fit the MAFS in the tube, otherwise you'll have to go with the same size tube and figure out what you are going to fill the gap with, or size shrinkage, whichever suits your fancy, either way it will be constrictive. I'm not defending PVC, but I used it because it's easier to work with for situations like this.

I am looking at doing this for my 2000 Accent L series...

Looking on Webtech, it doesn't appear as if the crankcase ventilation described in the article has to be done for the Accent because the tube is after the throttle body. Is this correct?

Also, there are 2 resonators in the stock intake, 1 before and 1 after the air filter.. What is their function? Do they quiet engine noise or do they actually have something to do with air velocity going into the throttle body?
