OBS DIY Intake

I bought the parts yesterday to get this job done, but I took a slightly different approach than most of the DIY setups you see. I already had some 4" exhaust tubing with a 45° bend in it, so I bought the same filter, filter holder, and rubber boot that the Tymar intake uses (yes, the exact same parts). I also bought some T-bolt clamps, I decided not to use constant torque clamps because (1) they were twice as expensive (and my wife about **** herself when I told her what I had spent already) and (2) I'm not 100% convinced that the constant torque clamps are necessary.


$118 worth of parts from Air Flo Systems.


The lovely stock OBS intake (with a K&N hiding inside the airbox )


What I did with the IAT sensor


This hose coming from the vac pump was touching the rubber boot that couples the 4" exhaust tubing to the CCV housing.


Shortened the hose a bit


Much better


Finished product

Its not 100% perfect at the moment but it was getting late last night and I wanted to get it back together. I cut the exhaust tubing just a little too long and the hood hinge lightly rubs the filter when I close the hood, but other than that I'm pretty happy with it.

If I wanted to buy the "real thing" I easily could have.

I only bought parts, not their kit. Yes I probably could have called Dale and bought the same parts from him, but past experience has led me away from buying from Dale/Tymar. Cheaper or not, I'm happy with my intake and it does everything its supposed to.

I've seen a couple of pics of dual intakes. The intake splits and has two filters. Any done a DIY dual intake?
