    For you cheap 4 tec bastards!

    Me included, I'm impatient waiting on my 4" adapter & hose to show up & it's warm out here in So Cal which means I'm riding tomorrow. I ghetto'd up a 3" rear intake with 2 stock hoses from the oem intake & a 2" ABS elbow. Yeah it's restricting 3/4" over the stock setup but it's fresh air & cheap.

    I just cut 8 ribs down from the 45 degree side of the longer OEM hose & shoved an ABS elbow in there & it's in deep & snug so no zip ties are needed. I had to twist & pull pretty good to get it out. Then use the small snorkel with the gromet end for the top half into the rear intake vent. I drilled a 3 1/4" hole in the vent & the snorkel fits perfectly. My exhaust hose is modified & sits lower than stock so if anyone tries it you'll need to cut more ribs off to lower the sorkel. Anyway i'm gonna run it tomorrow & see if I get better than 8120-40 rpm that I was getting.
    I have outerwear that i'll put over the opening too. Damn, get one of these http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=492
    & yer set.

    Think it'll work? I can't let danny get all the ghetto glory here.

    Oh, BTW, yes the dirt was cleaned out of the elbow before I finished it up.
