Default Home-made cold air intake?

I was wondering if there is any way that I can make a home-made cai? I dont want to use the stock tube either. Any suggestions?

I would say get a filter for humidifier a small one and find some way to rig that into a bunch of soda cans lol. probably should not take that into consideration, but it would be interesting to see if something ghetto rigged like that could be created =)

Talking Homemade CAI

I went to Home Depot , got some 3" pvc , a 90 degree coupler and a straight coupler. I am going to use the stock airbox but get rid of the airhat. Cost me around $27.

I don't even have to paint the tube, it's black.

Good for you! lol, Most diy jobs end up with an open filter under the hood, this hot air hurts performance, no matter how cool it looks lol.
