My hella rice intake that I did two days ago. It's like air ducting that they sell at the rice section of autozone, 3" diameter with 2 hose couplers included. That's the only thing that I could use for my intake, for now.

Don't feel bad, I must admit that I used that same tubing on my JRSC setup.

That looks so nice, I need to wire tuck but I have so much **** to tuck its not even funny.

I've been trying to figure out a way to get my afm turned around like that, if it holds pressure well I can give it a shot. My turbo is like 1.75 so its kinda bitch to get sized right. and the afm side is just slightly over 2" so... I was thinking I could swing some 2" flex pvc to get the bend there... a little connector from the turbo to get the size.

I need to reduce it to like 2" or 2 1/4" so I just used double layer of hose couplers, 2.5" inside of the 3". It's not gonna hold pressure, but for the intake it won't leak/suck any air behind the afm.

Rusman,

How is the Intake ducting holding up? I wonder if it will deform while the suction is so great.
