how much would it cost to make a CAI, cuz i dont exactly have a whole lot of money to spend.
otherwise I think I might just run some ducting up to the intake snorkle.
A K&N cone type filter will cost about the same an OEM type square K&N element, about $40 US.
The PVC fittings are cheap. All you need are a 45 degree, reducer, and connectors to couple the 45 to the reducer and the 45 degree to your throttle body. The 3" to 4" rubber connector is the most expensive part at around $10. The all you have to do is drill a hole in it for the AIT sensor and use a 1/2" rubber grommet to plug in the hole to accept the AIT.
Real simple and real CHEAP.
I would recommend forming a heat shroud around the sides of the cone with some Reflectix bubble insulation to keep it cooler. You can buy that silver wrap at the hardware store too.
Those hot exhaust manifolds will heat your intake charge to over 140 F in the summer.
The plastic insulation will stand up to engine bay heat and the trick to forming it is to use a lot of aluminum tape ($5 a roll).
