Default intake specs

i searched through a couple pages of threads with no luck, sorry if this is a repeat!!!

i'm considering building a new intake. i would go for the adtr but i don't want to deal with waiting for them to be in stock and this and that. i was thinking about just getting some mandrel bent 3" aluminum tubing. would you say the bend is about 60 degrees? any other tips would be appreciated!

yep about 60 most likely, i couldn't really find any 60 degree bends. it'* probably easier to get a 90 degree and cut it on the bend at desired angle just by eyeing it up. heat paint helps keep pipe temps down. and the rubber connector things can be found a a hardware store.

I think you will probably have to go with 4" pipe, 3" is not going to be big enough. I am not sure how much you are going to pay on the pipe alone but there are a few on ebay with filters going for less than $50. They usually don't have a true K&N filter on them but it would be a good start.

Here is a link to get to bonneville intakes on ebay .

i already got a rigged up pvc pipe intake with a "real" k&n filter.
i think most performance filters are the same, i think u just pay for the name with K&N

Sorry, I was just guessing about the 4", but it doesn't seem like 3" will be big enough. People put 3" on their exhaust.
