diy intake pipe mod

i have made my own intake pipe for my rb20de. we were having a new extractor system fitted in the bodyshop i work at that used loads of 75mm alloy pipe. there was some bits left over so thought id put it to some good use. i got a 45 degree bend silicone pipe, a airline fitting for the idle control valve pipe, and a few jubilee clips and had a catch can i was going to put on my r33 gtst

it now sounds loads better and a bit more responsive i would recommend doing this to your n/a

the silicone pipe cost me 17 and clips and other bits about 5. i have noticed a difference in resposiveness but the sound of the induction roar is 100% better and worth doing it for that alone.

Simple, effecive and it looks good
Nice job mate

Next mod should be a cold air box with an air intake from the bumper to make the most of the intake and pod filter
