Default rice pipe

I know what you experts are thinkin.. not this topic again right? lol

I read the techinfo and read this site here
So does the filter end just rest in the air and the only place the intake is held in is by the pipe near throttle correct? It seems unstable, how well does this holdup

Also is this a capable mod for a total noob like myself? its seems pretty simple I dont want to screw it up though.

the fliter is clamped to the pipe and then the pipe is clamped to the TB

I have my heatshield attached to the car.. othere have the heatshield attached to the pipe. I personally like the heatshield attached to the car, to take the weight off of the TB

and its really easy

get a coupler to go from the TB to the pipe
get a rice pipe
cut to lenght
attach the filter
make a heatshield
put the IAT back in

go drive be happy

It just clamps to the TB. Use a QUALITY reducer. Not a Home Depot Plumbing coupler. Any noob can do it

will acrylic glass work for a heatshield like yours? Since I already have some of those..

also for my car its setup like this guy'*, where the pcm is in the way.. will that be a big prob?


also, willwren I see your heatshield is attached to the filter, whats holding it in place? I'm thinking the hole rear panel must be really tight because I see nothing in this pic

thanks for the pics guys.

one more thing, one of the threads someone mentioned air filter needing lubricant because it was too dry? First time I've heard of oil used on an air filter, can someone fill me in on this

yes, its called recharging/oiling a K&N air filter, so it last a long time and many miles. You lightly put oil on it i believe. Only with a K&N filter though

big_news_1 recommends the 6" rx-4730 through his posts I've read and since I dont know how I would relocate the pcm (cant find any topics on doing it). what do you guys think? Big performance difference between rx-4730 and RX-4750 ?
