Cool, what did you make it out of? (aluminum stock welded together I presume?) and in what configuration?

Ok, the chromed plastic is one of the worst tube materials you can use.

The ricer filter is probably the worst possible filter, and is probably restricting your flow. Fill it with water. I bet it holds it. Some have been tested here in the past.

Get the Autozone aluminum ricer pipe and a K&N filter. Get rid of the cardboard and foil, and use plexiglass or acrylic for your shield. Use the cardboard and some tape only to make your template from in order to cut the plexi.

Your failure wasn't technical. Your failure was in component selection. You used the worst possible PRODUCTS.

Do a search on 'rice pipe' on this Forum. Then put a REAL K&N filter on it, then build a custom heat shield.
