Default Home made intake

Finally had some time to build my new torque tube style intake. Decided that I wanted something more secure than the modified stock box style and went this route.








Not sure I saved any $$$ when I figure in the time, but can say 100% built, not bought.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

Vindex did & I followed his idea and built one out of my stock box. It worked great, but I wanted something stronger than the plastic. Had some scrap 1/4" plate, ordered a 1 3/4" mandrel U bend, 1 1/2" sch 40 pipe coupler and went to work. Cost of materials (minus Filters) was less than $40. I can tell you that there isn't a lot of room in there to fit the pipes and can see why intakes cost what they do! Was still a frustrating and fun project. Hope it warms up here so I can go for a test ride....
