I am in the process of making my own intake horn. I'm too cheap to buy one, and I have the materials, the time, and the equipment to do it. I will also temporarily eliminate the grid heater until September or October. The intake tube will be 3" OD, made from driveshaft tubing from a 1985 Dodge 3/4 ton truck. The first pic is the flange that bolts directly to the intake manifold. The center hole in the flange is to make it easier for me to torch out the 3" circle......it gives me an easy starting point.post-11025-13869818647_thumb.jpg

I like this. Always better if you can form fit it yourself. Not sure of the year truck you have, but I've read on mine I can max the ID up to 3.5". Not for yours ?Are you going to get this powered coated ?

I'm not gonna powder coat it, but I'll shoot some flat black paint on it :)

Here is a pic of the unit with the welds cleaned up, inside and out. I'm thinking of cutting the angles shallower, 'cause I don't like those sharp bends it is making. It will require more cutting and welding, but its all good Posted Image
