Air filter - $20

Clamps - $10

Hose Adapter - $5

Hose - $15

Pipe w/ air flow sensor port - $5

Let me know what you guys think and if you have any questions or suggestions. I know it's not the prettiest intake set up but it beats the cost of a an already built intake or the hassle of getting pipes to fit.

The hose off the end of the filter doesn't do anything, FYI. Air follows the path of least resistance. (fluid dynamics)

I'd love some more in-depth photos :D

We used to build our own intakes all the time back in the day.

Well it looks like I need to flip the direction and position of the parts but I'm on the right track lol

Unless the filter is entirely enclosed, it's just going to suck in the air that's around it, regardless of where that tube goes, though.

LiquidSnak is right, unless you enclose the filter then it draws the most air from where it has the least resistance. Looks a lot like an intake I built years ago for my MX-6 before there was anything afternarket for it. Try using some 5-6" inner diameter drain pipe to enclose the filter and then the hose will be doing something. Good job on it though.

It certainly looks nice.
I just think you could get the same results or better by swiss cheesing the OEM airbox.
