Its SHINEY!!!, I assume pretty cheap and will be just as effective as much more expensive kits, so its about all you could want in a mod. Good Job

I did that, sent outside air up to my cold box. Worked well.

Shouldn't you insulate it to keep the air flow colder, or doesn't that matter?

With as much air moves that moves through it, it probably doesn't matter.

It worked for on my 90. Just be careful that it doesn't get a hole in it as it'* relatively fragile

Hmm,
The dryer venting is a pretty interesting idea, however I'd like to see the engineering that went on at the bottom. Looks like you built a flange or something there?
I've heard that if the material is not perfectly smooth on the inside it negatively affects airflow, but that stuff you used isn't that ribbed inside, is it? The ribbing tends to be on the outside instead.

Very nice!
