Found A Free Intake. Couple Questions.
So I was at my old job today and saw an intake laying under a work bench and decided to make it mine. Not sure what year it is off of but I know that it is off of a van because off the coolant port is on a 45* angle.
I have been looking around on here for intake wisdom and have a general idea how and where to cut it using a cut off wheel and a sawz all for the bolt tubes. I figure I can do all of the porting using rolloc discs and flap wheels.
My questions are as follows...
1. There is no difference in the van intake correct?
2. should I remove the ribs from the inside of the intake as well? I was planning on doing so.
3. I was planning on using a tappered 6mm alan bolt like others have used. what do I use to countersink the bolt holes. do I need to seal them with anything? where did you get the bolts and is there an option on the angle of the taper?
4. Is welding it on a jig necesary due to warping?
5. Are there any pointers, supplies needed, etc that anyone would like to share?... Thank you all.
