Alright new member here. Checked out forums forever finally joined. Ive searched forever on making my own FWI. I am not able to get abs pipe in my area. Wondering if there is anything that will substitute it. I have the 3" rubber coupler, Spectre Air filter. Still need the pipe. Found a 3" id 45 degree Spectre street elbow at autozone. Any advice would really be appreciated been wanting to do this for a while. 2005 imp. 3.4

You could try something like this out:

http://intense-racing.com/Merc....._Induction

EDIT: although you can buy it cheaper if you don't get it through intense

could also search the internet for some type of abs, or silicone tubing

you can use aluminum, some parts shops carry small lengths for CAI building. You can also use steel, but you will want to paint it. You can get that at an exhaust shop. Stainless is more $$, but you can polish it.

Spectre makes a thin wall aluminum tube. Look into that also

Well,it's not a "Fenderwell Intake",but you can take a look at what I just did with a piece of 3" EMT I bent/had lying around at work,and a Spectre filter.

It was a 45 degree bend,which you can buy "factory bent" at just about any electrical supply house for about $20-$25...and the filter @ $25.

I had to to trim/cut down and file/smooth each end to get it in there,but it wasn't a big deal.

Just my 2 cents...which is probably only worth a penny. Embarassed
