I know it's not an ideal setup,but it's gotta be better than stock.It's one of things I had to do/make,and I 'm sure I'll do something better in the future now that I've dug into it bit.. Had to do something and get my hands dirty...you know how that goes.

It's 6'' long and 6" wide at the widest point. You think that's too small? Just asking/learning.

Thanx

I'm just used to my huge K&N filter.

You should get some sort of way to shield that from heat.

Yeah,that's next I imagine.I still wanna try to take it to the fenderwell,which seems to be the way to go from what I've gathered here...I'll just have to bend another piece of pipe,which ain't a problem. Just feelin' my way thru it,with help from you guys,of course.

thanx

The inside of that EMT doesn't have that coating that flakes off does it? I'd be worried about it if it does.

I'd actually talked to reps from both the EMT manufacturer and both companies that do their coatings...happens to be Dupont and Sherwin-Williams.

Breakdown outside, 800 degrees...inside about 450 degrees....so,I should be ok.

thanx

EDIT: It's 3" EMT,trade size...about 3 1/4 actual,3 1/2 O.D. give or take

Looks good, the pipe looks small for some reason. Do you bend your own?

It was a 45degree bend I had at work,so I decided to just make it work the best I could.The bender(s) I have access to I do not believe will bend as tight a radius as say,some of the manuftured kits,so'I'd be slightly limited inthat aspect I will probably end up reconfiguring it later as I mentioned above,This was basically a trial run that'll certainly work for now. It sure as hell sounds a LOT better.

The pipe,as mentioned above is 3'' trade size.

I dd that for over a year, my filter got dirty alot and horrible gas mileage in the winter so i setup my intake just like his behinf the light, intake isnt nearly as loud now(less tubing), better gas mileage with warmer air, and i honestly didnt notice any decrease in performance.

I understand. The FWI doesn't throw off alot of performance in the first place IMO, it's more of a supporting mod, but it does sound neat. Smile

The JMB intake pulls from the fender and when sitting at a traffic light on a hot day (90*+), the IATs will read up to 150*. On the highway, the IATs are 5* above ambient. During city driving, the IATs are usually 10-15 above ambient. I'm also running without the blockoff plate. The one that comes with the JMB doesn't work with the Monte Carlo.
