Homemade Cold Air Intake

Asked by Nov 07, 2010 at 07:54 PM about the 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 2 Dr SL Coupe

Question type: Car Customization

I was thinking about making a homemade Cold Air Intake for my 1996 Cutlass. I was wondering if any one had made one. If you have, could you tell me how you did it, what you made it out of, and where did you put it? Any answers are appreciated.

I don't really have any specific info about you exact car but I have made cold air and short ram intakes before. long ago I helped a friend with a honda project and we found some piping from the exhaust stack of a semi that had a suitable bend and diameter to fit under the hood and mate with his T-body. tapped it and welded it some flanges for two hoses that conected to the head cover and voila. it wasn't pretty until he spent countless hours polishing but it paid off in the end for him. since then I've seen a few "make-you-own" kits pop up at places like pep-boys and auto zone that basically consist of pieces of precut piping, elbows, gaskets and clamps but with that many breaks and seems I can't imagine they'd be very good for smooth airflow. hope this helps.
