My filter inducts just underneathe the front bumper. I only run it during the summer and i change it during the snowy months. It is louder than all my buddies l67'*. I love crusing next to convertible and mashing it, it scares the hell out of the driver lol. Or coming up on somone on a bike, looks like they mess their pants.

PVC is one of the worst materials to use. It heatsoaks rapidly, and each joint, no matter how small, causes turbulence.

My first intake mod was done with a PVC pipe. I took care to dremel all the inside steps to minimize turbulence and covered it with silver bubble wrap to keep it cool.

I used it during WCBF04.

PVC has worked very well for me on all my vehicles I have built. I experimented with many different materials including the accordian style tubing and aluminum. But thats just my preference.

PVC'* physical properties are known to be very poor in terms of thermal soak. Did it feed air from point a to point b? Sure. Did it do it in a thermally efficient manner? No.

Ive begun to worry a lil less about the pipe gettin heatsoaked since the air is much cooler because its being inducted so far away from the engine compartment, right behind the drivers side bumper. PVC might get heatsoaked more than other materials but it'll also cool down as cold air passes through it just as quickly. Also, my alcohol injection setup keeps the intake charge temperature down. Like I said the piping has worked great for me and to get back on topic she screams.
