      You need to feed the power from a switched positive instead of a constant positive. Use a voltmeter to find the switched power source and splice into that.

    Any idea the thermal rating on that silicone and the pvc pipe? I'm pretty sure it's not that great. Some people use fuel hose for a positive crankcase vent system (pcv), but vaccum rating is low . Get the correct hoses to get the job done.

    Hub-centric rings are a nice assembly aid, and in some cases they may compete with the lugs in a way that will center the wheel better. They are not at all mandatory. All vertical load is handled by the friction force between the mating faces of the wheel and hub. You guys avoided saying that they carry a load, so you're doing better than some who describe the "need" for hub-centric rings. Proper lug tightening procedures will center a wheel with a large center bore on the hub just fine in most cases. Manufacturing tolerances of all the features involved, including the rings will create some radial clearance between the hub center and wheel center bore (with ring or without). This is why lug nuts have conical or spherical faces. The lugs are the features that do the centering in the fully tightened assembly.

    That was a lot of work and a good job. How about running the wires through the firewall and connecting directly to the battery. This would require a switch to prevent the meter from discharging the battery when the auto is unattended. Alternators can fail and go out of regulation, reaching 18 - 22V. This needs to be known and stopped quickly before the overvoltage damages some of the auto appliances. A safe max voltage is 15V. A battery is usually discharged, or has a bad cell, if the voltage is below 11V. The alternator can develop an internal shorted diode, in which case the alternator frame will become extremely hot and melt the belt and electrical connectors. A fire is possible. The battery voltage will begin to drop for this case.

    Go through a puddle... could hydro lock your engine as water can't be compressed in a cylinder and be a lots of heat there aswell? Why not keep the filter in the engine bay and make a pipe pointing the front grill from the engine bay with a mesh on it and direct it into your engine bay ? Instant cold air ! Wallahhh

    oh God I just can't, the amount of shit wrong with this is just UN-believable: -air intake next to front wheel?? -pvc pipe a good idea (it's f*****n plastic) - your intake ended inside te engine bay in the end, I've got an idea why don't you take a pipe shove it in that spot and the try to breath through the other end OMG wise up, not cai if it's in a f****n hot engine bay

    • R. A.
      R. A. 2 years ago

      It is a great Idea for those who CANNOT afford something more expensive. on the other hand..."why in the world would you just end the vid, with the Filter inside the Engine bay right next to the ENGINE its self!??

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 3 years ago

      PVC pipe is rated to a high enough temp to be in the engine bay without melting. ** so long as its not close to an exhaust/header. The shorter intake was showing another option for a SRI intake. Cold vs hot air performance is negligible. A guard liner was replaced off camera which blocks all the sling of water and mud from the wheel. (I guess we should have filmed that) It may look dodgy to you but its effective enough for those who have very little money to mod their car. If someone had the money to spend on aluminium, then they should get that, but that was not the purpose of the 2 part video. Thanks for the comments.

    • KDJ Trojak

      +Bishop Cherry Coke, ah well mate, we know its not for everyone. I made them like this when I was in my teens but yeah now I have a better budget for mods so havent done one other than showing people it can be done. If you have worries about it being plastic, its not a worry unless you stick it within 10cm of a exhaust. but yeah we know its not a good looking way to do it, but it suits the really young kids with no budget who want to do mods.

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 3 years ago

      Yeah intercooler pipe is usually Aluminium or Stainless steel, which is more expensive. If you have the budget to buy metal pipe its better because it is stronger, to last the cars lifetime and looks better than PVC plastic. Some people dont have a few hundred $ to spend on an intake though which is why PVC is a good alternative.

    • Akujin
      Akujin 3 years ago

      Instead of pvc can u use intercooled pipe

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 3 years ago

      yep so long as its not near an exhaust manifold it has the thermal rating to last years in an engine bay. Also when I was young I used a PVC intake for 2+ years on my first car, no issues.

  • Erin Colocado

    When installing a new CAI into your car, you also need to keep in mind the A/F ratio. Not only that, if you widen your CAI, you also need to change your exhaust manifold (headers). Big CAI with stock exhaust is a quite a dumb idea coz you still get standard lift but may not burn much fuel which results to lame consumption & the rest of the fuel is just thrown out the tail pipe. Your car will sound like its snoring which sounds funny!

      +frodo hobbit good to know man, we are by no means technicians or automotive professionals of any kind so its good to get feedback.

    • frodo hobbit
      frodo hobbit 3 years ago

      The reason why torque wrench has switch knob, so that you can be able to tighten those counter clockwise thread type fasteners or bolts. Please do read the manual. You should set the torque wrench to its lowest setting after you use it- that way, that will avoid prolonged stress to the spring's tension. Ask the Automotive technicians.

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 3 years ago

      +frodo hobbit Fair point, the designer of torque wrenches should have designed then with ratcheting action in one direction if their only intended purpose was to tighten. We'll take that info onboard.

  • Theodore Cornwall

    I did this before watching the vid i shit you not same position and i drive a 94 lancer... what i noticed thou is the pvc pipe heats up easily and that position of the filter is prone to water damage so i wrapped the pvc pipe in a heat protector and made sure the filter sat nicely behind the inner mud guard also got a 2 inch piece of thick plastic which i slide in front of it when it rains so it doesnt moisten the filter and when its dry i just slide it out .. BOOM Profit

  • Robert K

    Nice to see that you're using a torque wrench! Not many does that, not even garages. I bought a set of new winter tires 8 months ago and changed to summer tires one month lather. I was watching when the guy at the garage mounted the wheels on the car when I got the winter tires. First he used a gigantic impact wrench, THEN used a torque wrench. No need to say that I had a hard time getting the wheels off. I had to go to a bus garage and borrow one of the biggest impact wrench they had before the bolts came out. I'm guessing the garage where I bought my tires torqued the wheel bolts close to 400 Nm.. Idiots. The first tool I ever bought was a torque wrench and I've had good use for it many times over the years while doing jobs on my cars. I always torque the wheel bolts as specified by the manufacturer and I have never had any problems of any kind. Thumbs up for this video! PS: get a new jack. :p

Here's the tricky part...when the bass is bumping, the digital goes up and down depending on the bass (13.8 to 10.2v) but the voltage on the battery fluctuates less, between 14.3 and 13.6 My question is...it is ok to have one voltmeter on the amp?

    Mate.. Because of all the interior 'steps' and lack of housing around the pod filter and lack of positive ram.. I doubt this setup would make any HP at all. above stock. Don't know what you did with the MAF, IAT etc as they do need to be there to run the car correctly in case you didn't realise it. Sorry, but I'd bet money that you've dropped HP in this setup..

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      @bicanoo_magic bicanoo_magic Mate.. Sorry you dont know more about cars, not all cars run MAF sensors and most modern cars have AIT's in the plenum of the intake. this motor runs a MAP sensor which is a Manifold Air Pressure sensor, which is located in the plenum. no need for sensors along the intake piping. You would have also noted that we specifically say in the first part of this build (this is part 2 you have commented on) that this will probably not make anyone any power, most people do it for the throttle note. view part 1 here in-case you haven't: ru-clip.com/video/m1F79Dj1sXE/video.html Also this intake was built for the episode only, it was never going to stay on my car as I don't run an intake normally, just a filter sock on the throttle. Yes a shield/housing/container and a sealed pipe to ram air would be beneficial to the intake. but im assuming you missed the first part of the build which outlines that this intake is to be a super low budget intake that any noob could build with hand tools. Thanks for your concern about my car. Res

      @Kenneth Morris This car uses a MAP (manifold air pressure sensor) so no MAF was used. We will be making a full metal piped intake with MAF included at some point in the current season 2. If your car has a MAF sensor on the intake, you have to keep it, there are adaptor plates available on the web and at auto stores to adapt MAF sensors to pipes if your MAF doesn't have a round flange at each end.

    Thank you for sharing. It helps greatly when the camera isn't shaking. A quick question: with the power wire tapped into the positive of the cigarette lighter, can I also have two other gauges and their positive wires tap into the same positive wire off the cigarette lighter power wire? I bought a kit where there's a voltmeter, a usb charger, and a cigarette lighter power source. In other words, I'd like all their power wires to go to the same power wire of the cigarette lighter socket.

    You say it took "2 to 3 joints" to make the intake, took me a 12 pack

      The old one was for a different motor, and the intake had an extra bend but essentially the same path. As for gains, I thought it was the bee's knee's at 17, but now being substantially more experienced I can say it made no real gain besides a sporty growl to the intake tone.

    • Christian Daley

      @The Racing Seat You made it the exact same way as the one in the video? Notice any gains?

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      The one we built for the episode we never intended to use outside of the episode. However the one I constructed when I was 17 lasted 2 years perfectly fine before I took it off because I got bored of it. The coupe usually runs a tiny motzo filter straight on the throttle body for neatness and space in the bay more than anything else. -Res

    What if I want to add a MAF. Sensor port can I just make one?

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      depending on what type of MAF sensor you need to fit on it, you may need an adapter pipe for your MAF, google "your motor MAF adapter" see if there are any available, then adapt that into the PVC intake. if its just a small sensor that goes into a port on the pipe then just mimic the stock port position as close as possible on the new pipe and make sure it seals air tight. -Res

  • Andrew Klausmeyer

    Big issue guys with the diy voltmeter install, your only getting the voltage of the cigarette lighter circuit. Also as soon as the fuse blows on that circuit you will not get a reading at all, and if you want a exact voltage reading for your battery and alternator, hook the meter straight to the battery and use a fuse.

    • MP-TunersTechTips
      MP-TunersTechTips Year ago

      connect it to empty slot in fuse box that is powered only when ignition is on. that way you will have voltage readings and fuse protection.

    • Daniel Sparks

      Or get a voltmeter that turns off automatically based on time.

    • Hung Diep
      Hung Diep 3 years ago

      +andrew klausmeyer If you hook it up directly to the battery the meter will always be on and could drain your battery. You could add to switch to the positive wire but would have to remember to turn it off, the best approach is to use a relay and use an ignition live wire (such as the cigarette lighter wire) to switch the meter on.

    what about the sensors that should be attached to the stock intake isnt it bad just to ignore them?

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      Some cars do not have intake sensors on the piping, like this car. If your car does have an intake sensor, you will have to keep it and integrate it in with a MAF adapter.

    Can I just leave it black and not use the aluminum tape? Or would that heat up the pvc to much or damage it?

      Nice JOB ON the PVC Pipe Cold Air Intake System. I'm learning a lot of youtube. My Point is... that because of you guys i went out today and bout 2 (Spectre-Coupler ) kit, and tomorrow i will measure my throttle diameter and MAF and make sure my couplers fit my PVC pipes and MAF. Thanks Guys for the DIY your vid, It rocks don't listen to any negativity others may write on your Vids. Peace!! Ricky

    • jmidesigns

      Thanks, actually I have a short ram intake on my 350z with heat shields so im just going to extend it making a dual cold air intake placing the filters in front of my radiator. $700 for one of those screw that thank god for PVC. Great how to video.

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      so long as the PVC pipe is not super close the the exhaust manifold you should be all good. I ran one of these painted black for 2+ years with no issues

  • deigima
    deigima 4 years ago

    Some people would need to include a MAF in their intake. did you guys consider having tapered diameters to boost velocity in the pipes? starting with a pipe a bit larger and merging to the size of the TB somewhere creates more velocity since the same volume of air is passing through a smaller area.

    • deigima
      deigima 4 years ago

      Cool, look forward to it. What im going to do is modify the standard airbox on my car so it flows a little better and remains looking stock. removing intake resonators gave me plenty of growl. you could mention doing this in your next intake vid as an alternative to changing to a possibly defectable pod filter. I've got plenty of induction noise at the moment ;)

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      We will be making another intake with a MAF in season 2 which we just started filming. We didnt do stepped diameters or anything crazy complex as its meant to be a ultra low budget simple design that anyone would be able to attempt (on a car with no maf).

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      There is a plastic inner guard liner that blocks the intake from the wheel/brakes/tyre which we removed to get a a better view for you guys. On another note on heat transfer, heat goes from the brake to the passing air and if you are driving on the track the air is passing to the back of the car, so it would not pass near the intake ;).

    Excellent video!!!! I JUST got a crash course in Hubcentric wheels etc. TODAY! LOL I ordered a set of Yokohama ADVAN Tires and 20" RS6 Replica Wheels for my A6 and had them installed yesterday... but around 45MPH+ there was a vibration!? Luckily my car was being serviced today and my Advisor pointed out to me the need for Hub rings when you buy a replica Audi wheel. So I called the wheel shop in San Diego that I got them from... tell them what's going on the year of my A6 etc and he GAVE me a set of Hub rings! Wished they would have given them to me from the beginning with my Wheel purchase but oh well, problem solved! Once again very good information #TruthInEngineering

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      Yeah man, always a good idea to run hubcentric rings on aftermarket wheels, it is possible to align the face correctly without them and have no issues if you have some experience, but its always best practice to use them.

      @Meko227 I suspect if you have a welder you can just DIY your own solid mounts over the existing ones. No need to spend ridiculous amount of money

    • Res Car Adventures
      Res Car Adventures 4 years ago

      Not for our cars man, a decent solid mount pair for this car is $120 for urethane or $150 for ralliart solid rubbers. Also its $30 for the tube of sikaflex, and the one tube will do about 5-6 mounts so its about $10 per pair.

      I have a Mazda 3 2.0i actually I dont have the budget to buy a real intake. But this one is very interesting but is common sense that we cant put close to the ground or close to the tire for hot temps... if is raining how we can get raid of the water that is going to the intake??

    • Res Car Adventures

      yeah we have seen all the swaps possible done in these little lancers over the years, 3.8L V6's, 2.5L twin turbo V6's everything the PR guys go crazy on their drag cars. Its a shame we cant do it legally here in Australia
