you can either get stainless get it welded up to suit the car or aluminium piping and rubber joins from super cheap auto barn etc, cant use mild steel as it will rust on the inside and s**t will end up in your engine from it

You will also find that most exhaust shops won't make it. I asked around and they said it would be too hard and to expensive blah blah blah.

I knew they didn't want to do it. Most cbf. 8-)

If you have a normal snorkle and not a pod, is fine as the air cannot get as hot as the engine by the time it travels from the snorkle mouth to the engine.


How come if u have a stock snorkle and a panel filter not a pod filter as u say, wont get hot? Why wouldnt there be any difference if u get a bigger snorkle and use a pod (pod inside the box ofcourse) wont get any hotter?

He means if u just have a pod exposed ( no airbox)
If it's in a airbox it's fine and Wont get hot
