yeah okay well thanks anyway!!!playboy said:i'm considering trying to attempt to make a cai for my car it doesn't look to hard but is there anything critical i should know before hand? i'm just not willing to pay the amount of money these people want for an intake
Cool I am glad you got it in.Redline686 said:Well...a custom one would take more work than you think. I just installed mine today (K&N CAI) and I can tell that alot of work went into making it. Just the right welds and bends, i know i wouldn't be able to do it but i'm only sixteen and dont know the first thing about making mandrel bends.
Yah just installed today after school...it is VERY loud. It has a nice sound to it. I havn't gotten used to it yet and whenever i accelerate i get that huge grin like on christmas day. I love it.Chazb said:Cool I am glad you got it in.
no i have access to all that i will need i was just curious is all if it was more in depth than just bending pipeSp00ner said:There's nothing to it, bend the pipes, put it on. You didn't get many replies, cause there's nothing to reply, sorry. You just need to bend pipes to get it where you want it, and make a spot for the MAF sensor to connect to. If you don't have the stuff, or are gonna have to pay someone to do the bends and welding, you're gonna spend the same amount. Maybe more... if you have the equipment, then you just need to buy some tubing...

hell i'll try it i don't think it'll be too hard... so long as i make sure to keep the maf though!!!JPK said:Yes, it will be more in depth.
You need a place to mount the MAF which (more than likely) means you'll have to have a flat surface on the front to do that (ie. weld a small square piece on the front somehow, drill and tap mounting screw holes and drill a hole for the sensor to fit through).
It will be a bit more than just bending a piece of pipe.
It's harder then it seems......making the bracket for the sensor is the hardest part. http://www.geocities.com/korax234playboy said:hell i'll try it i don't think it'll be too hard... so long as i make sure to keep the maf though!!!
