Looks good. I would have recomended against painting the tubes before you cement them. If you use a pvc primer before the cement it will likely strip the paint, and if not it may not bond properly. I would also recomend a good plastic paint. It has a special formula to make it bond to plastic so it wont flake off under stress.

I did a very similar project last summer by the way.

I never did figure out a way to rig up a bracket but it hasent hurt anything yet.

By the way, although this may be ignorant, of what power wire do you speak?

yeah, i havent cemented yet, i and i think im going to take the paint back off, i may try to do a black chrome to it, and you post is where i got my idea, i used what you did for your 4.7L but just a hair different lol, and the power wire, well all it is, is a relocator for my Intake Air Temp Sensor, on 2002's and maybe 2003's (idk) the IAT is in the intake manifold itself, on 2004-up it's moved just before the engine hat, and thats what im doing, im moving it to a colder posistion

Ah, I see. That sounds like a good mod too. How are you planning to close the port in the manifold where the IAT used to be?

This is the first time I've seen this thread.. Nice work!

What sort of gains did you get?

When its all done, glued together with PVC glue or however you're doing it, you know what would make it look sweet is to wrap that bad boy in black header wrap.



Would cut down on a bit of the sound, but also keep the engine from heating up the air going through it too much. More of a functional gain than anything.

I've always had the thought that the temperature of the pipe wasn't all that important, but the temperature of where the air is being drawn from is vital. The air will pass through the intake pipe very rapidly....so it won't have time to transfer heat from the pipe to the incoming air charge. Since the air charge is always moving (basically) it won't have time to heat up even if the pipe was several hundred degrees....

I would agree.. alot of CAIs you see are made with aluminum tubing even. This would mean that it would transfer even more heat then PVC tubing would. But I have the same take on it, I think the air is passing through and isnt really being effected by the temp of the tubing.
