I've accepted cutting and patching my stock intake, but...

It still bothers me that the Airaid is the only option for such a simple part.

I'm going to walk around at the yard with a stock intake tube in my hands and try to find something from another vehicle that fits.

Godspeed, young Padawan. Might I suggest you focus on diesel trucks?

A fricking spectre cold air intake showed up at the yard today!

I grabbed the tube and rubber couplings. Yay.

Today is race day!

The weather looks perfect. Nice and cool, with no rain.

I will experiment with a few different methods... Traction control on/off, manual vs auto shifting, etc.

Coming soon is a picture of this intake tube, and some crappy phone videos of me racing a Marauder.

The intake tube was kind of an awkward fit, since I'm not using it for it's intended purpose, but it works.

I'm not sure if I have a way of hosting a video file right now. I don't use social media, other than car forums.

My buddy didn't run his Marauder, but I have a good video of me running a 4th gen Z28.

My times weren't quite what I was expecting, but still respectable for a full-size truck:

Best 1/4 was 15.8 @ 87 mph
Best 1/8 was 10.2 @ 70 mph
Best 60 ft was 2.4
Best reaction time was .000 (no joke)

The shift points are definitely too high right now, but it may just be because I still have stock exhaust. Getting rid of the suitcase muffler might help the top end a bit.

GU4 for the win!
