I was tired of my stock chevy intake, and aftermarket parts are hard to come by for a 2 post throttle body so i made a new intake.

stock intake-

construction- I made the base out of 1/2" mdf and pvc pipe. I use an aluminum sleeve to attach the filters. I cut the bottom out of my stock intake and fiberglassed it to the bottom of the mdf to allow it to mount up like a stock intake.

yeah, that looks great, but 6" from the exhaust manifold on each side? I would run 2 chrome tubes right up beside the fan shroud. That's just my 2 cents though.
