dont do it, that intake is too short and too much of a bend to be effective. the Rice Pipe is 40 from Autozone. You are paying more for that intake and it is not sutable for our cars

I'm sure it would work fine. But we don't know how reliable that person is to buy off of, and the "rice pipe" is a proven working design, for just 40 bucks.

Default Rice Pipe

What specific application are we talking about with the 'rice pipe' thing? I am interested in doing an intake as my next upgrade.
Thanks
