I want to try a homebrew cai. I have a filter ( very large K&N) 3" pipe with various elbows etc, rubber connector for TB. I havent really seen a how to thread for the 5.7. Anyone have ideas? I am planning on sanding and painting it to make it look as little like PVC as possible. Even have a few decals to put on it. If possible ( i may not be able to due to the large size of the filter) I could modify the stock airbox to house the open filter inside, or remove it entirely and run open filter and fab up spme kind of heat shield. OK enough rambling, any POSITIVE input would be appreciated.
