I dont want to hurt anyones feelings, but that PVC intake looks terrible. i will stick with stock before i ever ran something so rediculous. however, its not an issue since i already have an intake pipe to use.

Look, if you're not going to accept any answers, then you're not looking for one. I highly suggest you move on.

Why don't you guys use flexable tubing like ZZP'* or Intense'*? I think this is your best bet if you are not doing a FWI.

It most certainly and most definitely is an answer. One that worked very well for me, and several others.

You'll find that there actually are many options open to you. During the course of this entire thread, the pvc idea wasn't the only one you shot down, claiming that it won't work.

I've seen plenty of things work quite well in the 3 different Bonnevilles that I've owned, and in my 2+ years here on the forum. So your best bet is to recognize that we are only trying to answer your question and help you, and that you trying to say that they won't work when many of us have seen them work is not only exhibiting your ignorance, but also the fact that you need to come off that high horse you're on.

bud i never said any of your ideas wouldnt work. hell, even sticking a cone filter into the stock intake bellows would work. its not about what works though, its about doing things the right way. even the rice pipe is a little ghetto to me but PVC takes the cake for the most rediculous intake anyone here has made. you had the nerve to build it, and then post the pics of it and then even suggest it to others, dont get your drawers in a wad when someone with the sense to say NO speaks up. this is taking the thread off topic, if you want to keep the head to head discussion up PM me. otherwise P V C ya later.

Well... thank you for your opinion about intakes.

I suggest you make your own intake however you like. Let us know when you are happy with it.
