I know this is a redunant question but does anyone know how to make a custom intake for my 4.6l v8? Ive seen pics of custom intakes in the gallery but im not sure what to buy to build it.

Ive heard of a civic tube or what not.

Can someone give me a run down on the parts i need to buy?

Or even link me to a thread that already states it? I searched but couldent find much.

Thanks!

if you are worried about that, take a saw, cut the pipe that goes into the fender in half, so the filter isnt all the way down.

I've been meaning to get some pictures of this set up on my car to post here. But alas, I'm on a long term assignment in Maine and probably won't be home 'till some time in September. Just fix this cheap little number up on your car throw a K&N filter in the air box and be amazed at the difference over stock. Be sure to secure it. I used long zip ties run through the bracket in the last pictures in the how-to article wrap them around the pipe and zip them back into each other and pull tight.

Good Luck!

3" exhaust pipe-0$
1' of 3 ply silicone hose-15$
and then find a cheap cone filter

just have a exhaust shop bend you a 3" pipe so that it can clear the hood & fuel rails
