Nice description, but a bit short of the 1000 words a picture is worth...

it took 66 drops from a height of 6 foot to break my butt joint... that'* what i call really good. i got some special pvc paint, it'* about as durable as pvc, although there doesn't seem to be a clearcoat available and the only colors wal*mart carries are gloss black, hunter green, spring green, and white. i'm working on painting techniques and bonding techniques at the same time as curing times suck.....

pics in my cardomain MOS, i've gone to a system of using pre-bent fittings, with about 30 hours to build... got my first one built, and test driven with cheapo filter. i get a little more chirp out of the right side, and i got a little crazy, reverse donuts are fun!

I'll be posting my intake specs as soon as I fix my computer. I made an intake for a member and it turned out very well and it looks great. Talk to everyone soon.

from measuring and calculating, a 45 is almost perfect, altough you may want a 47*, which is perfect for my L27.
