DIY Tymar intake

Just scored a filter off Ebay for $30 including shipping

I got it in the mail today and boy it's a big filter!

Now I've just got to get some 4" pipe and decide how to proceed from here.

To air box, or not to air box. that is the question.

Any way, I'm excited. And can't wait to do the intake MOD on my 97 OBS

EDIT: there's pics of this intake 95% complete on page two of this thread

I'll post up pics on my shutterfly site which is linked in my sig, once I start the job.

Get some PVC from home depot. It will work and its cheap. And if you build an airbox it will make it more of a cold air intake, but it is not needed.

I'd stay away from PVC, seen lots of it distort from heat. I used ABS in my SD and never had a problem.

My down and dirty install.

I just got home and opened the hood and took a look at what I'll be dealing with.

I'm thinking that I could take the lid from my stock air box and cut it up so that all that's left is a 4" nipple.

This would allow me to install the filter RIGHT NOW, and then work out the professional details at a more relaxed pace.

I'm off to get the wizz wheel and start hacking.

In the long run I think I'll be using 4" exhaust pipe.

Pics on the way soon

Got it in!

PICTURES ARE UP

Look in the link on my sig, it will be the first album, Titled "The Truck"

I couldn't get the stock rubber hose to stretch, so I cut a chunk of 4" hose off of my dust collection system from my wood shop.

It's not permanent, but it will work till I get the proper 4" metal pipe.

Time involved- 30min

Hardest part- removing bottom part of air box

busted knuckles- 1

Satisfaction level- 200%

IF YOU HAVEN'T YET DONE THIS ON YOUR TRUCK--- GET MOOVEN!

Berk,
I am in the electrical wholesale industry and i bought a tymar intake for my OBS...the best thing for you to do is to go call a local electrician and have them bend a peice of 4" EMT (electrical mettalic tubing) at a 22.5* bend, go get yourself 2 of 4" rubber couplings from autozone that have the heavy duty hose clamps on there then connect one end to you turbo and one to your filter

Hi ho Silver.....

Sounds like a cool use of EMT. My turbo doesn't have a 4" inlet though I don't think.

There is an "air horn?" that contains the CCV vent, and it's 4" on the filter side, and 3" on the turbo side.

And I'm thinking my garret turbo has a 2 or 3" inlet?

I'd like to straight pipe it from the turbo to the filter but it looks like I'll have to reduce pipe size somewhere.

Any way, I'm almost done with the CCV delete as well. Today has been a PSD kind of day!

OBS Tymar kits are very reasonably priced..under $160 shipped and comes with everything needed to do the install correctly..If doing a DYI get a Donaldson, not a Napa filter and the correct clamps

Hey silver, you got that red boot at Autozone??

You know to be totally honest, I'd love to find a 3"-4" adapter boot and run a pipe straight to the turbo. Git rid of all the extra bends and boots.

The CCV mod was fun, I rotated the doghouse and ran the tubing up over the brake booster then under the truck and out the rear. My intake was SATURATED with oil
