It looks nice and concealed. Add a decent paper filter on there and it would be perfect. For mine I used a cut up water bottle to get the right diamter adapter without too thick of wall. How do you like the INTENSE tubing? Does it seem to bunch up in the turn? I think the tubing works a lot better then the rubber connectors most people use. They don't allow enough flex for engine movement.

I used the stock back w/ a rice pipe a while back:

I like the tube. The "bunching" is only on the outside. The inside keeps a smooth contour even when flexed. And yes, there is plenty of flexibility for motor movement.

I like this alot! Would you guys deem this as effective as the conventional rice pipe with filter and heat shield? If so, I think I might try this one....

You can't really go too wrong for the money...

Good to hear. I keep looking for a cheaper, more easy to obtain alternative, but I haven't found one. Another problem is that I have a 3-3/4" ID tube and it works perfectly over my L67 TB. 3-1/2" seems to small, but it seems to work on yours.

That solution was hidden in plain sight. Excellent thinking!

This a total nit, but how are the radiant heat resistant properties of the INTENSE hose?
