hey guys,

sorry for a bunch of posts about the CAI stuff...

i just drove around for about 1 1/2hrs trying to find some 3" exuast tubing so i can make this damn intake. i also cant find the rite K&N with the rubber boot (anyone have the part #?) i would use pvc but it would look jimmy rigged, i have a 93 blazer with the 4.3L vortec motor and the intake tube needs a bend in it to fit around the alternator. any ideas on other tubing (dont want steel b/c its to heavy)

i was thinking of dryer exaust tubing (like the the DYI post) but you cant bend it.

any idea's? i thought this woulda been simple but its becoming a real PIA.

thanks,
scott

Ck out this site. Go to the online store, then click intake tubing.
They have ALUM tubing in 3". Good people too. They have rubber
connectors . I'm getting my stuff from them after x-mas to build
a decent CAI for a TBI..

Over at Airflo they have 45* 3" elbows as well as 90*. I believe
the length of the alum tubing is either 2' or 3'. Should have plenty
to make up a CAI, or get two pc's for a lil over 11.00+ shipping.

I once bought all my over the road stuff from them a few yrs back.
Look at the rubber elbows section..

As far as a K&N how bout a RC-3250. 3 1/8" dia for mounting
6" long, 4" and something at the end..Here's K&N's pg for tapered
filters..

just a thought, a 45* bend in any air-flowing tube system is going to introduce a LOT of constriction and turbulence. it would be better if you could use some 22.5* bends, 30* at the most.

I don't know what filter comes in a regular CAI lit. I just looked
at the diamesions and it looked like it would work if you were
going to drop in down to the left front corner..Maybe someone
else has a filter num for their kit.
