any way How is the intake going??? i just recently had a thought if you make a copper one for the ea/ed cars like the air intake is in the corner near the fans and s**t surly not much hot air can circulate round there,

Back in the bow and arrow days at plumbing school we had to make a heat trap in copper tube using sand and the oxy...

Have a look in the heat trap bin at work,you might find one,not a weld in sight,if you had the time and plenty of oxy,that would have been the way to go...

Nice sweeping bends,no silver solder anywhere,take fcuken ages though

vik...they were the days,and you can stick em!!!

MORE :)

they uses copper for gas and water in houses :)

copper gets put in the ground etc and lasts for YEARS :)


Vibrations can kill copper. As copper flexes it work hardens, then it will fracture.

Hey Frank,

Throw some good paint over this thing, otherwise add the word 'anode' to your vocab.
