    My buddy gave me a power chamber air intake like this one but it is made if plastic. How hard would it be to make one out of carbon fiber? I dont know what brand it is but it fits my EF.Who ever had it before it looks like they cut it with a die grinder but then stopped.I was thinking about cuting it in half long ways and using it as a mold. Does this sound possible and worth the time?I just got laid off and have alot of time on my hands.

    If it's anything like working with fiberglass, it's fully possible. Whether or not it's worth the time is up to you.

    whale penis ftw!

    if you have time on your hands just make one out of 3'' tubing and make some bends. I guess you could mold one but it would take longer.

    i would just buy one that has been tested and dyno proven to make good hp gains
