A leftover piece of 45* 4" exhaust pipe, silicone coupler, duct insulation and Wix filter. :woot:
The filter end is not secured. As you can see in the photo, I had to unbolt the turbo inlet pipe from the engine. I will be making spacers and using longer bolts to reattach it. Even without it, the assembly hardly moves at all. You will need a silicone coupler because the 45* elbow doesn't line up exactly.cool, did you attach the filter end down somehow so no moving around?
Wix filter #56637 or NAPA Gold #6637.Whats the wix part number?
Home Depot. Any big-box store like Lowes or Menards should have it. It's foam insulated foil wrap with an adhesive backing. I also purchased some regular non-foam, aluminum tape. Once you get the foil-foam wrap on, you can wrap the entire elbow with the foil tape to cover the gaps.where did you get the duct wrap?
My 2000 didn't have an airflow sensor, just the air temp sensor. I zip-tied the sensor right next to the filter.is their an air flow sensor in the pipe somewhere? did you have to remove one?
I didn't at first. One day, after a 20-minute drive, I popped the hood to install a new fuse-block for my yet to be purchased accessories. I placed my hand on the bare metal elbow and damn near burned it. The steel tube was absorbing radiant heat from the exhaust. I figured the foil wrap would deflect the heat. It does seem to idle smoother now.Why did you wrap it?
