Default Fender Well Intake

Ok, So i have my PCM tray on order, have a 3.5inch K&N filter, and now i need to find something that will make a suitable template that i can bend to shape to snake through the fenderwell and hold its shape while i take it to an exhaust shop to have a piece of Stainless Steel pipe bent for it.....

Yep....

Intense tubing would be better. You need the flex beacuse of the touque.

Check out Wills video of "Greenzilla"

Use a coat hanger or simillar sized wire to form the top of the pipe, remember to allow for extra length when bending pipe. This will depend on pipe diameter and radius of bend.
I used to be an industrial electrician and have used this method many times on tricky pipe bends up to 6".
