Yeah, I was wanting to know the same thing. I have heard of some people making their custom cai's out of flexible tail pipe like the kind from autozone. Thanks for any help ya'll can give.

I made mine out of 2.5" flexible exhaust pipe. It works really good, painted it red. I picked up a piece at Farm & Fleet for $8.00. I think it is 17 inches long. I had to take my battery tray out, but the battery is still held in by the clamp. Hope this helps ya out <img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

The "Random Special" is made out of Flexiable exhaust tubing.

I used 2.5" Flexable exhaust tubing that is 34" long. Then capped it with a 2.5" diameter K&N Style Cone Filter (I like Specter filters as they have the 'top" of the filter open with filter media in addition to the sides, and they are only $19.95).

You will need a "dremel" or drill to cut a hole in the metal tubing to make a hole for the Intake Air temp sensor. (keep it as close to the MAF as possible for accurate readings).

Then I wrapped the whole thing with 2" Exhaust heat wrap to prevent the metal in the CAI from absorbing heat. The heat wrap dropped my peak Intake air Temps down 20 degrees. You can also "soak" the heat wrap with water from a squirt bottle when you want to keep the intake air as COLD as possible. (drag racing). But it dries out fast (under 30 minutes).

I ordered 6" of 2.5" Flexable Exhaust tubing from www.JCWhitney.com for about $25 bucks, and that is enough for 2 intakes. The Heat wrap is also availalbe from them. The 2" heat wrap comes in 35' rolls, enough for 2 or 3 intakes for about $35 bucks. And the Air filter is mentioned above.

Any questions?

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.
