Default DIY "Black Mamba CAI"

Hey guys i give the credit to Wermbang for showing us this but yesterday i decided to make my own CAI.
Things youll need:
a durango/dakota airhat(make sure you get the bracket)
3in 90 degree electrical conduit(Home Depot)
a rubber connecter(home depot/advanced auto parts)
a filter(spectre/K&N)
Heres what it looks like stock
Now what i didnt realize until later is the breather hose on the 98's is on the right side, the 01s is on the left so you will have to get a longer hose(will ass pics of that later.
The airhat was a pain to get on but theres a trick. You have to bolt it on but leave it loose and spin it forward, put the airhat on and while its on you have to squeeze your hands underneith and spin it back and tighten it.
Then i painted the pipe with the black heat paint. ($10)

Once the air hat is on, bolt the filter, piping and rubber peice together and bolt it to the air hat.

now heres where i ran into problem #2. The trans line tube will be in the way, i just moved it to the left a little by zip tying it out of the way

Heres the final product:


I havent gotten to drive with it on yet but ill let ya guys know thanks again for the idea
