Intake...Interest?

I am thinking about doing a little work in the shop soon and I am not real happy with the look of my airaid intake so I was thinking about just building one of my own with 4" aluminum tubing and putting a cone r2c filter on it (check them out, definitely the best filter we have found for our dirt modified!)

Would anyone be interested in some sort of direct bolt on kit for your 7.3 with the tubing already bent and all the necessary hardware? I could probably even get a deal from r2c on filters if I can purchase more than just a couple of them at once.

Just curious if anyone would be interested

how about some pictures of a prototype? Hard to sell them something they can't see... Myself, I'm gonna do something along thoes lines as well... got a 3' pc of 4" exhaust pipe, it's gonna go from the 6637 DIY filter to at least the CCV adaptor, and maybe to the turbo when I do it... it's gonna go on the red truck, early '99.

It will essentially be the tymar setup but at a lower cost. I'm not looking to make any money off of it, just looking for something to do in the shop and help some people out that may not have access to tubing benders. Not this weekend but the next I am going to try and get it cut and bent so I can get a prototype pic up

I did the DIY on my 2000, it was so easy using the stock tubing from the filter box to the CCV adaptor. However, the red truck (e99) doesn't go straight into the filter, so it's gonna take an angled piece, but tight. I was gonna cut the 4" exhaust pipe I got on an angle, and weld it back to gether to make about a 45 degree bend.
