i was thinking about making my own cold air intake kit out of pvc so i could route it where i want it, but i also want to fibergalss it so it dosent look like everyone elses, i didnt know if the heat from the engine bay would ruin the fiberglass though. just wondering if anyone has done this yet.

As for your future engine mods, I wouldn't consider any of them.

Pacesetter is crap, look into Al's header,
I have heard bad things about venom 400,

Look into a larger TB, exhaust, e-fan, cam, and header

I noticed a little bit of diff with the throttle body spacer, but I wouldn't buy it again......I actually sold it....Don't even look at a header, look at a turbo manifold, and mount a turbo on the thing, thats about the only way to get power out of these motors.

I have seen people using PVC, but I would think maybe the exhaust manifold heat would melt it, i guess maybe not. Try it out, its cheap to start with, an d if you dont like it, try again :)

Intresting how the K&N and Volant are plastic, so why would PVC melt before plastic? I have seen several people using PVC, it is all how you design it.
