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.....!
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.
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 200ºF? 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.
joekd...I agree. No sense in cutting corners just for a few bucks - a waste of my time. This "bumper paint" is not cheap. I was doing some assembly last night and an real pleased with it's durabilty. The Worth a look if doing more. An added bonus is that it comes in satin finishes - matches the nitrile better.
BTW, what have you been using to camfer the edges of the aluminum tube? I'm finding the Dremel 1/2" sanding drum works best, but is sure chewing up the sanding disks quick.
