stock intake mod

Has anyone tried cutting off the baffles and sealing the cuts. Could be a cheap mod until you get a cai. Someone could get smart and make a replacement piece without the baffles to so it would still look nice.

you could do this yourself, just make a spot for the mass airflow sensor. Or you could seal the holes with tape and them drill a spot above the filter on the stock box for the sensor.

If you're going to do that, why not just do this...

Question My idea exactly, but wrong bend angle perhaps?

$90.00 for 2 "angle-cut" silicone couplers and clamps, and an aluminum tube? That's pricey! For a few bucks more, folks can get the SLP Blackwing tube + filter.

The intake tube on your website is coming out of the throttle body at an angle (so the "angle-cut" silicone coupler is cut that way to keep it from bulging out because the intake tube is cocked). Just doesn't seem like the "smoothest" airflow.

If the aluminum tube was the right length and had the correct bend angle to it, the silicone couplers would not need to be "angle-cut".

I already have a K&N panel filter. I'm all for DIY, and I was looking for a vendor to supply just the intake tube. That one is not the correct fit, IMO.

I remember reading a post where a guy bought a intake tube off ebay that was meant for s/c applications. Fitted just fine and it was $20-ish?

Don't see the point though. The CAI test showed no improvement from stock with just tube/filter replacement.
