Just a idea for cheap intercooler piping. Would I be able to use 3inch pvc pipe? Only on the throttle body side of the front mount. I have ed intercooler piping but need it to fit a el manifold. so as a temporary measure just make some put of pvc piping. Would it work?

No do not run pvc pipe as intercooler pipe. Hit up exhaust shops for bends for a cheap measure but remember steel rust on the inside aswell as on the outside and u dont want that s**t in your motor

no, ... it will fit and might work for a hour or 2 but as soon as engine bay heat gets into the pvc its going to go soft. expand and to a point melt..

See I found weather pipe that's 3" thickness and can hold up to 260 degrees before it starts to go soft. What is the normal engine bay temp
