I finally got some time to install it, make a video and uploaded it to you tube. The camera lowers the psss sound for some reason Anyhow you can get a feel of it right before the rpm jumps up. It did make my 50 delta just a bit louder, its hardly noticable but there. If you're in gear and step on the gas it gives out higher pitched psss noise which i love.

Here is a pic of my pvc... As you can see there are clamps on both sides. I cut 1 end of the pvc preatty much all the way (left side of pic) I left just a tiny bit of the bigger part just so the clamp stays tight on there and wont fall off so this serves like a lip at the end of the pvc. The throttle body also has a bit of a lip on it so once you tighten the clamp down it will stay there since there will be a lip on the throttle body and a lip on the pvc and the clamp will be in the middle.
Now your question.. It's rubber so it easily shrinks when you tighten it. It wont even feel the 1/4th of an inch when you tighten the clip. (btw when you do tighten the clip use a screw driver and not a wrench since a wrench will snap it most of the time)
As you can see on the right side of the pvc it goes to the 3.5" pipe and out to the filter.. I did cut that side also but thats because i made the "breather piece" too close to the end there. If you put your breather piece 2" from the end you shouldnt need to cut it.

|NalinMFG||my only concern is the attachment to the throttle body... does that pvc close up with the strap on it? i measured my TB opening and its 2 3/4" from the outside of the lips (a hair less under the lips) a 3" id pipe leaves a 1/4" of play... im just concerned that if i go to rural king and get myself a 3" pipe, start cutting on it, it's guna be too lose and let in dirty air. did you use any rubber/insulator around the seals(mainly around the TB)? Everything after the TB is just like playing with Lego's so i'm not worried with at that. I'd appreciate some close ups/details of that elbow. you seem to have done it right.|

It sounds preaty much same note its just a bit more pipey sound. It sounds more like its going through a longer bigger pipe, with some echo to it .
You can add prefilter cover to it any day since its just a cone filter as a matter of fact it will once i install it. Once i install it i will take a video of it so i can post the whistling from the intake and the exhaust sound

|mud707||Looks nice., on your page it said it changed the sound of your flowmaster is a deeper sound or higher? Also can you get a prefilter to cover the filter you used to help keep out mud and moisture?|
|02-27-2007 11:11 PM|
the black pipe with the wrighting is 3" interior and 3.5 outside diameter. i belive its a pvc pipe.. its 12" long (keep in mind my filter is from ebay.. 3.5 opening and its 9" long and not the 6 or so the standard cone filters are). The elbow is 3" Inside diameter and the ends enlarge to 3.5 ID, at last the goldish piece at the end of the black pipe is 5/8" diameter and that is the breather piece for the valve cover.
The goidish piece should be 2" from the side so it doesnt interfier with the black elbow, on mine its like 1" so its in the way. If you need any info at all let me know.. pm or just post here
I have many more pics of it on my cardomain.. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2512831/2
|02-27-2007 09:58 PM|
|NalinMFG||BADA$$. any post install pics? Btw, what size tubing is that elbow you have coming off the throttle body?|
|02-27-2007 08:22 PM|
Finally I finished my intake.
Rough Sanding the letters
At last its all finished
Although the letters look orange they are bright red.
|02-23-2007 10:41 PM|
i want 1 of these
I gues it will make some difference?
Do the winshield/roof lights interfier with the window and the doors? If not you can put a pipe up that has an filter up there. You can check out that movie mischief dynasty it has a wrangler with the filter by the roof.

|Unlimited||That's not the write-up I was thinking of. I'll look for it tonight and post a link for it if I find it.|
|02-23-2007 05:06 PM|
nm i found one site, notexactly what i was thinking but close
if anyone was interested i was looking for a less restictive filter as well
|02-23-2007 05:04 PM|
the snorkel just barely goes over where the hinges are so you need to take the snorkel off to get the doors off at least an ARB safaria one does.
any idea where i could find this site you speak of, this site, pirate 4x4???? where????

I saw a jeep with something like this on it, but it was not an intake for the engine. It was a filtered air source for the HVAC outside air. Somewhere there is a write-up on how to do this without the filter sticking up through the cowl.
|02-23-2007 02:07 PM|
i want to do something like this but i am not sure how to do it, it would be like a snorkel but it would not stop you from putting the windshield down or taking off the doors.
if any1 has done this or has ideas on how to do it then please tell me
sorry this is the only place i have ever seen it and do not know the name of it to search it, (it is to the left of the hood)
|02-23-2007 08:13 AM|
I did have the intake installed for some time and i did notice better response. With the stock intake (which i have now) its sluggish when you step on the gas while with the intake it seems like it picks up a lot faster. I am thinking of some kind of a heat shield later on.
BTW i did replace the yellowish pipe with 5/8" so that should fit perfecty instead of the 1/2 that i have on the pic.
|02-23-2007 12:01 AM|
I can't speak from actual knowledge, just tech stuff I have read. Supposedly there are two reasons for not doing it.
1. Being cooler air.
2. There is supposed to be something to do with fluid dynamics and the way the air moves through the tube to squeak out more performance. I don't know how much that is supposed to hold true for the stock setup but that is the word behind aftermarket manufacturers designs.
Personal observation of a friends Jeep... didn't notice any difference, but it did clear out a lot of stuff under the hood.
|02-22-2007 11:29 PM|
Time to make it look nice. I'm now digging in the letters with my dremel tool and will paint it after wards. Black pipe with red letters. ill post more pics when i finish
|12-23-2006 05:47 PM|
I just installed it and it sounds sweet. I cannot say anything about performance since I havnt gotten a good chance to do so. The jeep seems to be running a bit smoother at idle and you can hear the air rushing through. Also it sits few inches higher than stock filter. I have quite many pics on my car domain. Check it out.
|12-21-2006 06:52 PM|
|Triple88a||Currently its raining like crazy but hopefuly this weekend it will be somewhat nice weather so i can look around in there. I'm guessing stock location of the box might be the best.|
|12-21-2006 03:03 PM|
OK... Where would be the optimal area under the hood to have the cone intake? i.e. where is the coolest air under the hood?
my question relates to the fact that I have an electric fan behind my radiator. This means I have a TON of room right in front of where the original engine fan was. would that be a good place for the cone filter? would I be getting optimal "cool" air?
|12-19-2006 10:58 PM|
btw what diameter is the outside of the throttle body?
I'm guessing 3" but still wondering.
|12-19-2006 08:15 PM|
|12-19-2006 05:19 PM|
|NalinMFG||wow- cant wait to see that installed... (pics)|
|12-19-2006 06:35 AM|
|mikestj||you'll want to move that filter,your going to get too much hot air even with the scoop.you can use a cold air intake from a civic to move it up and back to where the colder air is under the hood.82-95 civic i think.around $50.someone here had a link to show how to make a hidden snorkel going thru the firewall,increases HP and gas milage as well.|
|12-18-2006 07:28 PM|
My 17 bucks ebay filter just arrived.
Now thats a filter (few extra pics on my cardomain)
|12-07-2006 08:38 AM|
As I thought about what some of you said about this setup, I was trying to figure what type of air (temperature-wise) this was getting. There is indeed some warmer air that would get ingested by the filter from the engine heat, but there is also cool air coming in from the back of the hood from the vents. It may not be much, but I would also think a small hood scoop right over these vents would allow more cold or cooler air to enter the filter in this area.
I'm just kind of thinking out loud here, and anyone who has other ideas is welcome to chime in...
|12-06-2006 11:08 PM|
|Triple88a||wow it fits like a peanut in a bowl eh? I thought it would run into fittment problems Thanks man as people say a pic is worth a 1000 words|
|12-06-2006 09:29 PM|
ok i snapped some pics tonight. excuse all the wires, I am in the process of re-wiring some stuff... here you go:
|12-05-2006 10:04 PM|
|NalinMFG||yes, please post a picture! i would love to see what that looks like|
|12-04-2006 10:49 PM|
what kind of filter is it? soemthing like this? http://www.eautoworks.com/productimages/pic33202_2.jpg or is it the cone type that somehow fits? http://www.autoprotoys.com/s-s-filter.jpg
I would love to see a pic of the set up
