|October 26, 2010 - The completed intake.|
All of the silicone pieces needed to be cut down as short as possible to allow the MAF to tuck into a spot beside the power steering reservoir, but it all fits. An S-shaped tube made of stainless steel exhaust mandrel bends joins the filter to the MAF, and also has a tab to support the intake. It's mounted to a rubber isolator, but I think the engine movement will be small enough that the silicone pieces will be able to take up the slack.
Sharp eyes will notice that the blue silicone has magically turned to black. This was due to clever use of electrical tape. It's not high-end, but it worked a treat!
