Pics of my DIY intake

Tell me what you guys think. Pulls air from the stock fender location as well as from behind the grill. It is mounted in place at the stock mounting locations. I used 1/8" vent line that I sliced to the top edge, the side edge that meets the inner fender and around each of the pipes. Mainly to keep from cutting myself working in the engine bay, but I didn't plan on the vent tubing actually quieting the intake noise down in the cab, but it did. I'm planning on wrapping the tubes with muffler wrap and also wrapping the box with heat mat, because I can. I figured it couldn't hurt. Inside of the box and any other exposed areas will be wrinkle black painted. Stock IAT sensor has been installed in the new air box. I'm thinking I might put the stock filter restriction gauge in the 4" pipe, again because I can.

Oh and one more thing the CCV mod is next on my list since i have a couple of pieces of 4" pipe left over. I'll be making my own coupling without the CCV hole. Will probably have enough material for a couple of extra if anyone else is interested in one. Not much harder making three compared to one once I have the dimensions.

That looks good, and will look even better once you paint it. So do you weld and do machine work? I was thinking of trying to do a DIY box like that, but I don't weld or do machining. Have you thought about making more of those boxes and piping? If so, I might be interested in buying one if it was a good price.

Thanks. I do just about everything. Love the DIY stuff the best. If I think I can build it I will try. The metal for the box came from a shelf from one of those rack shelving units I found laying around. the pipes I had bent from a local exhaust shop. I don't know if making one to sell would be cost effective, I really just wanted to build something different for myself. I have about 4 hours into it, granted making another one wouldn't take nearly as long now that I have the patterns. I will be making a CCV mod coupling and have enough 4" pipe to make 3 of them if your interested I could send you one of them. Just pay for the shipping which shouldn't be much.

Nice job! Looks great!

How did you make the pattern to fit the hood profile? I want one for my 2001 but just have not started that project. Got up pipes, turbo pedestal, UVC wiring harness and a few other things I need to do first.
