Question MY HALF *** INTAKE, SAFE OR NOT???

Well i figure i would try something temporarily untill i get a K&N intake. ill post the link to the picture at the bottom. do you guys think this is a safe idea or will to much bad **** get into my air box or possibly my motor. I know it wont give me much performance at all but it should let it breath at least a little more. what do you guys think.

Thats slick but there are a lot of people on here that are going to tell you to stay away from K&N. Dryflow is always good and others will chime in with their opinions too

Its the intake for the stock setup. It had a long tube that went all the way to the front of the hood which limits the intake ALOT so i poped the extension off so its straight air into the box.

Why dont you just go buy a big napa filter, some pipe or pvc, remove your entire air box, then clamp your new stuff into place and you will be running the same setup as 50% of the people on this site. Its almost as easy as what you did in that pic... and cheap.

oh. ok now i see it. well as long as their is no possible place for air to get in around the filter you'll be ok. If air does get in at some point past the filter your in for trouble
