Air intake project for $26! I made this with all new parts sourced from a local speed/performance shop's extras bin. The intake tube was much longer with additional curevs I had to cut up and do additional bends, 3" diameter. The throtle body connector was from a Home Depot 90 degree elbow with the ends cut off and shortened. The air filter is form HiperSpeed. I also kept the air sensor connection at stock location and the PCV hose near stock location.

I am working on a heat shield next.

So far I have noticed crisper throttle response with more get up and passing capbitlities. The gas milage has also seemed to incresed per the computer readings i've noted. @70MPH it's averaging 2+ MPG increase.

Just thought i'd share this mod with you guys.

Thanks for the compliment! I'll be posting some other self made mod pictures soon. I'm fabricating side rock rails/steps and will attempt to make a new front bumper as well. All will be TIG welded. In the near future, I'm also planning on making headers too.

Have you always made everything from scratch on your rigs? That's kinda cool. You get exactly what you want and you know what kind of workmanship is behind it.:cool:

I agree this looks totally custom fit.

I'd give you two thumbs but we don't have any yet. ;)
