I have partnered with a guy to build a custom intake and heat shield system. It is very professional looking and very effective. It has been heat tested and a few protoypes have been sold. The kit is being finalized for producion. Also, we are currently building a similar kit for the Euro HFM...we have 6 back orders waiting for us to finish the intlet tube...should be done in the next 2 weeks. Send me an emaail at my work address ([email protected]) if you want a picture...it looks and sounds great!

: I agree with Sean.

: You know a cheap way of doing this is to go to Home Depot, buy a 4" rubber PVC pipe connector, then get either an angled (I think 15 or 45 degree) exhaust pipe (3.5" diameter) or PVC pipe.
: I initially was afraid of the PVC pipe, but with a
: heat shield there's no danger of it melting.

: I connected it in this order front to back:
: Cone filter, pipe, PVC connector, Euro HFM, Steve
: Brown adapter. I had to design (bend is more like it) two brackets to hold everything in place and mounted them to the stock air box mounts.

: I can't believe ERT charges $1250 for their kit and it doesn't look like they include a heat shield.
