Default Custom Cold Air Box

I'm looking for some aluminum quick release attachments. Like half turn on off ones. They can be 2-3" OD. Anyone know where I can source something like this. The only thing I found at Home Depot Racing was quick release on off tubes for a leaf blower but they are plastic and I'd have to contact the manu of the blowers.

No, a quick release for an intake pipe running from the radiator opening in the bumper to a cold air box. Like a v-band connecton but twist on off.

...and more money falls out of my ***.

I want to use these inside the fender/bumper to hold it together. Do I need a spacer or can two flush surfaces, roughly 1/16" thick each, stick together with one D-ring and one "receptacle"?

I've heard that OBX makes an affordable knockoff of the adel-wiggins clamp but I havent been able to find it on their website.

I might just have to pony up for aluminum v-bands.

Bitch, you're not going to do a god damned thing. Thank your lucky ******* stars that I haven't locked and deleted this thread yet. The only reason I haven't is because you're the TXMC poppa bear.

If you ever come in another race prep thread again with a picture of your 16x6 turbo twist wheels, 15 vents, or no wideband ***. I will keep seeing your mother even though I normally only do one night stands.
