Intake and Engine Cover

The other day I finally finished the intake. These are the parts that I used:

  • Cobra intake elbow
  • 3.5″ 60 degree silicone elbow
  • 3.5″ aluminum tubing (1/16″ wall thickness, and I believe 9 inches length)
  • 3.5″ hump coupler
  • 3.5″ grommet
  • Aluminum intake box that I made from 0.3″ sheet
  • K&N RU-3130 filter from Amazon

I still have to wrap it in some insulation tape to keep the heat out and mount a couple of sensors, but this is pretty much what it looks like.

The cobra intake elbow does not fit under the existing engine cover, so I had to make a small cutout for it and then fabricate a small cover to protect the top from engine heat.
