In Reply to: tubbie custom Intake......hehehe... posted by tubbie on June 16, 2000 at 12:13:11:

: I had an old HKS foam intake from my old supra, went and bought a DAC intake for 92 Honda Prelude for $65. I attached HKS to the intake pipe for the DAC and attached the DAC pipe to the air meter with a $2 pipe joint connector from Home Depot. Also made a heat shield like the JC with some plastic and silicone. Looks very good and works excellent. I also tried using the K&N cone filter that came with the DAC intake. It doesn't work as good as the HKS. You can feel a BIG difference (butt dyno)just by switching to the hks. A friend has the JC intake (no software) and with my butt dyno, I think my intake is just as good. we raced several times from about 40mph to 100mph, we were dead even, neither one could pull away.
: Next plan is to duct some cold air from the front grill to the filter (don't want to replace fog light). Total price for entire setup:
: new HKS filter = $60
: DAC intake = $65
: pipe connector = $2
: plastic for heat shield = old plastic chairs, hack saw, and sander
: silicone =$3
: Grand TOTAL = $130
: hmm....pretty cheap huh...hehehe...
: going to order shark injector soon..=)
