That looks cool. I though it was going to have a silver ramhead decal on it?

It will, once I install it and can center the decal so it looks good.

Hey Joked, the intake looks awesome! I was wondering if you need to make any cuts to the rubber elbow that connects to the TB.....?
The reason i'm asking is because i'm gonna buy the K&N Intake Kit and instead of re-using that restrictive-ass elbow, i'm gonna use the rubber elbow that is used in the L_Intake to connect to the TB. That way i'm gonna have the best of both worlds.....!

yep, you need to cut 1" off the rubber elbow

why not just save yourself some money and go with a whole L_Intake instead of modifying the K&N kit?

seems like a waste to spend $230 on the K&N kit and another $16 on the elbow

yes, I agree with Joked. L-Intake is the best way to go. Unless you modified the L-Intake to go down and have a cone filter under the car like 94 Intrepid has. So it would be nice piping all the way down. This would require moving the battery to the trunk though.

Now that I see it completed, I'm glad I chose black as well. I found a place that sells "bumber paint" that is specially formulated for plastic. Just finished painting the two pieces.

Gotta like that stock look.

is it high-temp paint?? bumpers aren't exactly the same as underhood parts

I used two coats of high temp primer and two coats of paint on both mine and randy's just to be safe

Joekd - Did use a different hose connector on this one? I don't see the bend. Very good looking in black, too. Nice Job!

nope, all the pieces in this one are identical to mine, the only change is in the color of the paint

The point is that it's specially formulated to stick to PVC. I've tried painting plastics before and it may look good but it doesn't stand up to the finger nail test. We'll see if it's up to the temps under the hood. What are we talking about 200F? After all, it's not sprayed on the manifold. Shouldn't be a problem. Besides, you know how hot the surface temp gets under the summer sun.

BTW, if only the primer was "high temp", you're no better off. The other paint is facing the hot side of the intake.

It doesn't get really hot, not like the exhaust, BUT I think hi-temp is a safe bet. And I betcha Joekd knew enough to use hi-temp paint if he used hi-temp primer.
