Corrugated Air Intake Section

Has anybody replaced or found a solid replacement for the corrugated section of the stock air intake? I like the stock filter setup but would like to replace the corrugated section with something non corrugated as is the case with all the aftermarket intakes.

K&N doesn't have a corrugated section but still has a rubber boot to connect the tubing but I'm not a fan of it and switched to an airaid which does utilize the factory intake from the turbo to that corrugated part. I don't think you'll have any issues with that corrugated part nor will it be beneficial to really get rid of it. The stock intake is pretty good but plenty of threads on here that will tell you that the aftermarket intakes are better than stock.

Thanks, I just want to replace it with something polished for aesthetics. I think the polished ones look really cool. Or even something paintable and I could do the enclosure to match in a nice bright blue or red metallic.
Cheers,
Dee

I had a twin Turbo stealth before this truck, and it had corrugated tubes off the turbos yo the intake and exchanging them for solid ones proved a faster spool up in the turbos. Doesn't know if it would apply with this, just food for thought.

Now, I know the corrugate pieces and rubber boots are because the air intake is fixed but the motor moves on it's mounts a lot, and all that movement could fatigue something solid. So how can you get away with a solid intake tract?

oh boy another intake thread! i think its all personal preference ive always thought that the metal tube intakes transfered heat alot more than plastic and im sure theres someone here gona say the opposite and along with the box or no box either way you can paint both to match the truck or whichever you decide, i think aem makes metal tubes along with injen

I'm sure I'll be comfortable enough with the flex of the rubber boot at the transition.

Well that's what I was wondering. I figured there'd have to be a boot in there just to make a male to male connection.

I think it'd be a little too rigid without and it'd either break or come off the turbo which would'nt be good.
