cold air bucket mod question
im thinking im going to do this soon but i have a question for you guys that have done this. i know i need to get a 2.75" aluminum pipe with a 90 degree bend. what im not sure is how long does the legs on the pipe need to be? i read that u have to cut the pipe but i dont want to buy one with the legs being to short to start with.

i am making one also, here are some materials u can look at get some ideas. be creative lol
either way i dont think u will be short in the tubing department. i have the riva filter kit and the filter itself is almost hitting the bucket and it mounts direclty to the TB, so figure if you are putting tubing from the TB to the filter, it wont be that much piping. now if you route it elsewhere, then its a different story.

i went ahead and ordered all the parts needed to do my cold air bucket mod! i got my blockoffs from 4tec performance. my catch can breather from summit racing. my filter, silicone coupling, and 90 degree pipe all off ebay. i didnt order clamps but i figured i should be able to find some at autozone. what are you guys using to cut the holes in your bucket?

what size hole saw do i need for the breather tubes? has anyone tried to cut the holes with some kind of knife? i know the hole saw would be cleaner but i dont have any or a drill at the moment. im sure i could borrow one if i had to.

not sure I swiss'd cheesed mine for air and for immediate draining of water if any got in....

i thought about just cutting the bottom completely out of the bucket. that way water could drain completely and air could get in as well. i really dont see that much of an advantage from hooking those breather hoses to the bucket. i do see the bucket as kind of a heat barrier.
