What are your guys thoughts on a DIY cold air intake? Made out of electrical conduit. I have seen some online people made for older gens but I'm curious about one for a 4th gen hemi. Couldn't find any links online of hemi ones.

I do not know if anyone has achieved this on a 4th gen if you decide to go with it post up some pics :)

I wouldn't try it unless I'm copying someone else's work. Haha I'm not that mechanically inclined with automobiles. I can tell you everything about HVAC lol. So you say stay with the stock air box. Do nothing with the intake? Somehow mod it to put a cone filter for better flow? I have no idea I'm just asking lol.

It honestly sounds like more trouble than it is worth but would like to see this done :LOL:

Very easy to make air flow

First gen NEON owners have been doing DIY intakes for years. Spectre offers a CAI for the RAM for $150.
If you need time to "create" something, in the meantime replace the paper OEM air filter with a drop in K&N or Spectre or something similar.
Posting high res photos of the air intake will help others offer suggestions.
You just want something sturdy.

Air though a hose

You're just moving air through a hose. Not rocket science. Don't use aquarium tubing of course, but arrange something with no sharp angles.
Can you post up some digital pix?

I know this is old but... Heat gun and patience... I build nerf bars and roll caged out of it for my son's power wheel jeeps and stuff. Heat it bend slowly wipe with a cold wet rag... Like protecting a king valve...easy peasy.
