I am planning on making my own cold air intake for my car because the air intake systems on the market suck (figuratively)! If you have ever noticed that the MAF sensor has a much larger diameter than the rest of intake pipe, you'll know what I'm talking about. <p>My only question is what is the line that goes to the back of the intake, near the turbo? My goal is to get 18+ WHP outta this.

not going to get 18 whp out of an intake - no way at all. 2 WHP maybe...<p>Additionally the intakes on the markets are pretty decent

Re: Homemade Intake Question (bpray9223)

So what is the hose that is in the center of this picture?<p><IMG SRC="http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i117/paysts/HAI001.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Another view:<br><IMG SRC="http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i117/paysts/HAI002.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>You can see how the intake necks down from the MAF. However, I need to see what the diameter of the tube that goes into the turbo, otherwise this mod would be pointless if the turbo inlet is much smaller compared to the MAF.

Don't waste your time. What have you done to your car so far that you think the intake is a limiting factor?

Re: (shagginwagon)

There are some great intakes out on the market for our cars. Won't it be worth your time to buy one to save time, and know you have a quality product?<br>If you can get 18 WHP out of an intake, you would see people line up to buy a version haha.
