Default Home made C.A.I and "Power Wire"

I'm about to make my own C.A.I, getting a few idea from KrazyKs' older post, only difference is im going to get rid of the the stock air box, then after that, im going to move my IAT into the new intake, the dyno just got put in at my school, going to do some base runs with my truck it wont be a stock 4.7L cause i have dome top pistons, but i wanna see how much the power wire and and a C.A.I is going to put out on the ground, i say a 12-15RWHP gain would be very nice gain to me, but i'll post pics because i know how you guys are



but i'll keep you guys updated on this

ok, i've been working on my custom C.A.I today i got a pretty good setup going/


just the plain throttle body

added a 3'' rubber connector


then a 90 slightly turned up to avoid the oil dip stick

then a 22 for up and over the dip stick

then into a 12'' long 3'' around pipe into another 90 but im going to shorten the pipe and add a 45 for "smoother air flow"

then the down pipe to reach were the cold air comes in

just a idea for a mounting bracket

then into a 45 to 22 for the filter

this is all free too, im lucky my dad knows a guy whos own a plumbing biz, with a warehouse full of pipes!!
and im going to cement the pipes together tonight, but before that clean them out really well! and please excuse my dirty engine bay...been a harsh winter is has....lol

it's coming dont worry, but i cant do anymore tonight, i dont have any black paint, (if i want to paint it black idk what color yet) and i just got done cleaning out the pipes, only to find one of the straight's cracked, but it's ok, i got 8.6 for feet of it in my bed haha, so im going to recut that piece tomorrow go to the store and pick up some paint and one of those small air filters for the air hose going to in the heads,and the dyno in the school should be up NEXT week...teacher told us this week, but's it's all good, im the (strangely) the only one that wants on it lol, but i want to get my mods done first that way when i get their and it's ready, i can do baseline runs, then put on my C.A.I and then after that the "Power Wire" to see the gains!

well i stumbled upon a can of black spray paint, but there was only enough to do this

but i think it's coming along really well, as soon as i get it finished i'll of course take pics, but also drive around to see if it made a difference (which i hope it does) then all this C.A.I will cost is $30-$40! thats for Paint, Filter, and small filter for the heads

ok so here in the final product!!!




and here's how i did it

Parts List:
3'' rubber connector
3ft of 3'' pipe
2-90 degree elbows
1-22 degree elbow
1-45 degree elbow
Cone Fliter
and mounting brackets (how ever you want to mount it)

1. put the 3'' rubber connector on the throttle body
2. put the one the 90's coming out of the 3'' connector, turn it up about 22 degree's (just get it close)
3. put the 22 in the 90 to make it straight
4. take the 3ft of 3'' pipe cut about 8'' out of it and put in it the 22 degree
5. take your second 90 degree elbow and put it on the 8'' pipe/ turn the 90 elbow down slightly
6. once again cut about another 8'' piece of pipe out of the 3ft pipe (3ft of pipe just incase you mess up) and put it in the 90 elbow
7. put your 45 degree elbow on the 2nd 8'' pipe you cut and angle it slightly away from the washer fluid resivor
8. put your cone filter on the 45
9. if you dont want to cut a hole in the tube for the air for the heads, autozone i think has small air filter you can mount on the hose or if you want run it you C.A.I tube (i went with the small fliter)


to get this to fit right, i had to take out where the stock air box/filter sits on to clear the pipe and also have enough room to install the filter

but their it is! (not finished with paint yet)
if you have any questions about it just let me know!
