Default Anyone have measurements for intake pipe for '95 SSE/SSEi?

I was wondering if anyone that has the custom intake pipe on thier 95 SSE or SSEi knows the measurements of the pipe and the bend. Any other info would be very helpful also! My car is at the performance shop getting the other stuff installed right now.(below) If i could get the mesaurements of a known good working intake, they said they might be able to do that today also. With a 9" cone K&N...
I'm soooooooooo STOKED!!

Well i know the outside diameter can be from 3" to 3.5" and the bend is probably around 60 degrees. If you want you can just order a long u bend from JCWhitney and saw it to the desired angle then just paint it w/ heat paint. It'* probably cheaper too.

yah, its getting late in the day now. I might as well forget about Trick trucks doing it today and just get my own like you mentioned. Couldnt i get a stainless steel one though? I would rather have the polished steel look, god knows it will look nothing like polished steel after i get done painting it!

Thanks for the input, at least someone replied today! :crazysmile:

yep. i'm sure if you looked around hard enough you can find a stainless steel one, or probably an aluminum one. But, if you don't put some type of heat deterant spray on there or shield it off from the heat the pipe could reach the temp of your engine (180-200 degrees ) that might make u loose some hp once your engine heats up.
