Dude...enginebrite baby icon_smile.gif
if you think his is bad you should see mine

but anyways i plan on going to the hardware store today and looking around for a suitable coupler...the one im going to today is a little hole in the wall store so it may not have it....then ill order my 45 degree 3 inch pipe.....and the K&N...couple clamps and whatnot later i should have myself an intake....ill work on the heat sheliding later...i figure a smooth, free flowing, hot air intake is still better than stock so yeah....
so for under a hundred bucks i shoudl have myself a nice intake

60ish for the filter...free shipping
im thinkin about 25 for the pipe...its 21 before shipping
misc. stuff 20 or so..i dunno

thanks for all the help, i think after all ive put you guys through if i dont do this you guys are gonna drive to Missouri and beat the crap outta me.....would that be considered a Midwest meet?

Sounds good Hoov. 60 bucks for that filter? Geeze It better be free shipping! Whatever coupler you get make sure it will withstand the heat and weight of the pipe. Make sure to get some pics up when all done

well the journey to the local parts store produced nothing....somehow i knew it would...he had couplers that wouldve been just dandy for what i need but the biggest he had was a 3 inch to 3inch.....ah well...i guess ill have to venture to a real hardware store next....i hate this town....on a side not my car ran like crap for most of the day....i think its a combination of the extreme heat and my running the AC all the time. cause i turned the AC off for a bit and it was like a different car.....youd romp it from a standstill and it was like BLLLUUUGGHHH until like 3500 or so then it would start to move in typcial bonnie fashion....ah well.

3" to 3" will work if it'* PVC. The inside diameter of your filter should be 3 1/2", and the outside diameter of a 3" to 3" PVC coupler is also 3 1/2". Were you looking for a rubber coupler? It may work to use a PVC coupler on a metal tube, then clamp the filter outside the coupler.

no it was a rubber coupler, im not sure what it was designed to be used for but it sure wouldve worked had it been the right size.....im gonna attach a couple to the TB(3 1/2_ and tthen the metal pipe into the other end of the coupler(3 inch) and then get a filter to fit the 3 inch pipe.....at least thats the plan.

Now, I'm talkin' inside diameter, not outside. I used a 3" rubber coupler on my TB, and it went around the 3.375" OD quite well.
