intack question

so i have a cheap short ram and i noticed that it is kinda hot when i check it the other day now the plastic part isn't. I was thinking of painting the old rubber one and having it like i did b/4 but run it to the fender well. will this be better b/c the rubber wont be as hot as the metal one?

hence why I don't like SRI.

Putting the filter in the fender will will cool the air that it gets, but it will probably cost a lot of low down torque, one of the down points of CAI.

But why would you paint the rubber one?

Another idea is to use PVC. Sure it doesn't look as cool as a polished stainless pipe, but PVC has less thermal conductivity (ie, the outside can be hot and the inside cool at the same time) and it's also easier to work with.

I used 2" pvc pipe and fittings to make a CAI for my friends 86 saab. it sounded beast, and the throttle response was much improved.

I made a pvc CAI for my old mercury cougar, go to home depot, get some like 3 inch pvc pipe, and some of those rubber elbows, and an adapter rubber piece for the 3 inch down to the size of your TB. They should all come with new hose clamps as well..

You can then paint it whatever color you want if you dont want the white with the stamps on the side... haha
