Hi guys. Was looking around on the net, and ran across this 3" intake tubing with angles molded in,made of "high grade X-link polyethylene", (must be the good stuff). Measure and saw to length needed for the do-it-your selfers. $140 bucks isn't cheap, and then add in the cone air filter, it adds up. Might look better than some home-made tubing jobs. I wonder if it would fit to the stock air box with the correct sized coupler? Anyway, just thought I'd give a heads up for this product if it hasn't been brought up before. This 3" tubing would fit to the stock 3.5L rubber elbow, that clamps to the throttle body? http://www.autoanything.com/air-inta...2A3839336.aspx
Coming off the factory airbox lid is 2.5 inch. I hacked up my K&N intake to line up with my factory airbox, using a 3inch plumbing coupler and just had to make sure it was really clamped down on the lid side
It does fit the 3.5l rubber elbow, but you have to modify it by cutting a certain section off of it. My J-intake is 3" piping and in the instructions that what I had to do to fit it on properly. It wasn't that big of a deal.
I made a BHAF kit for my truck and intend to do the same. I spent $50 on the plumbing, $50 for my huge filter, and about $20 for my outerwears filter cover. I intend to do the same thing for the intrepid.
Anyone have any experience with using the Caddy 4.6 Northstar elbow? I was wondering about our IAT Sensor. I'm not sure if GM had a sensor in their rubber elbow that's clamped to the T.B. Drilling a hole through the rubber the correct size should be easy for the IAT Sensor, but how is it held in the elbow securely?
