Icon8 SO ticked off..

I've been driving my 'lude since July 11, and didn't realize until just now that there's a HUGE gash in the air intake duct, inside a crease of the flexible part.

How much damage could be done to the intake? I am not at the point, yet, where I'm comfortable removing the intake manifold to clean it, but I know it needs to be done.

I discovered this while looking for the FITV, thinking it would be easy to remove and adjust. But I'd have to remove the TB to get to it, and I'm still new to wrenching on anything later than a 80's Ford.

So, now I'm off to find an intake duct, but am curious to know. Is there any way of temporarily patching it, so I can drive without gunking my intake?

Tnx,

The classic fix-all: DUCKY TAPE!!
or you can use gorilla tape.
you also could go over the with a paper towel(or tissue paper) and apply silicone over the area. I have done to patch holes in speakers and speakers deal with much more vibration.

Re: SO ticked off..

I am briefly considering silicone or liquid plastic. Esp. since the local Honda dealership (one of them) said that they are not in stock and would run >$75 to order.



I already tried duct tape - it wouldn't stick to the duct. Too dirty, I guess.

GAH!

Re: SO ticked off..

If it wasn't that big of a cut, than it prolly didn't do any damage at all. Minimal, at most.


I'd silicone it, but THOROUGHLY clean it first with rubbing alcohol, brakleen, or something else, so the silicone sticks to the rubber/plastic.

Re: SO ticked off..

The gash goes around 3/4 of the circumference of the PVC.

I have some Simple Green, I suppose that would clean it well enough. Just bugs me that I've driven it for this long and didn't even think to look at it, until now.

Re: SO ticked off..

Ah.. if only I had the cash!

Purchased 7/11: $6000 + $199 dealer fee + $419 sales tax + $80 titling/licensing
Since then -
$450 brakes all around
$550 tires all around
$120 alignment (1 year warranty)
and I don't know how much I've spent in foglights, heavy duty winter-type mats, various other minor repairs, and other stuff I've bought since July. There's very little expendable income left for an upgrade, as much as I would love one. :(

Re: SO ticked off..

SRI intake pipe off ebay, like $10.

Quality K&N intake, like $30'ish.

I'll definitely look at those, thanks for the heads-up.

Meanwhile, I need to patch this one until they arrive, so here's my plan (tell me what you think):

1. Clean the immediate area around the gash with Simple Green and a toothbrush (my sister's will do perfectly.. [evil grin]), dry with paper towel and some time.

2. Apply a liberal dose of silicon around full circumference and let dry (hopefully while being in close-to-normal position) for 24 hours. Then cover with duct tape (the universal cure-all.)

3. Drive 'lude with this until I..

4. Order SRI or K&N intake from eBay. Install as soon as it arrives.

Re: SO ticked off..

you can also look on here for people parting their ludes out, or go to the junkyards and look for aftermarket intakes. you can usually get a nice cheap price if you find the right junkyard, mainly u pull its

Re: SO ticked off..

I don't advise of using silicone. Imagine the damage it would cause in the event it broke off and got sucked into the intake.

Re: SO ticked off..

just wrap the f*cker in duct tape. thats what i did when my type s pretty much tore 90% of the way. and honetly, unless its a HUG gash, nothing probably got sucked into it. air follows the path of least resistance i.e. through the filter. youd have to plug up the whole filter part of the intake to suck anything through a slit

Re: SO ticked off..

More options than I had originally thought. Thanks, guys.

One question, though. The OEM has at least one hose running into it. Do the aftermarket ducts have the same openings for things like that?

Well, I've already applied one bead, and will probably spot-bead it sometime tomorrow afternoon. Not much worry about it tearing, as I don't plan on it being in the car, for long. As soon as I get a replacement, it's going in the recycle bin. I just need something for interim use, and it does appear to be factory original.

Next: foglights. I've had them for almost a month, now, and I think it's time I installed them. Just waiting for a response to a post in another forum.

Thanks, everyone. It's always a learning experience, around here, and I really appreciate it.

Yes, aftermarket intakes have the one outlet nipple that goes from the intake to the corner of the valve cover. That is all that is required for an aftermarket intake - but at the same time, that nipple can be plugged on both a factory intake or an aftermarket if a breather filter is installed onto the valve cover nipple.

Is there a performance/gas mileage benefit to using a breather filter? Would any other mod be required?

Thanks for the info!

No benefit really, unless you consider keeping oil out of the intake a plus. I installed one just because I couldn't stand the hose going from my intake to valve cover. Doesn't change mileage nor performance. - just an extra stupid little thing to do, and also helps in the event you pick up an intake without that nipple (not all aftermarket ones do, so it's no big deal) I capped the nipple on my intake when i installed the filter on the valve cover.


Hope this didn't confuse you

Re: SO ticked off..

I'm selling an OEM intake. Check my thread in the for sale section, 5th gen. But if you're gonna upgrade anyways, here's the perfect reason and opportunity to do so!!
