Default Custom cold air intake

I have a friend who made a custom cold air intake with a k&n filter and some simple pvc pipe on a car that wasn't a Mazda 6. I sure this isn't suggested but on a budget it seems like a good option. He drove the car for three years with it with no problem. Is this possible with a 2006 Mazda 6s with a v6?

All the stainless does is look good. PVC doesn't rust. And has a high melting point. It's just a guide for cold air. If you'd attach the sensors.

I had a friend who did this once (dryer pipe). He drives a Jetta. CELs all the damn time. Crying to me about it and I told him, duh- you just got a CAI for $50 total. You're gunna throw a CEL.

yes you can, yes it has been done, and yes it basically what mazda does with injection molding...

The parts are going to be more costly however than pre-made ones from ebay and you have to make sure the metering point is 2.75ID to avoid a CEL. It will be ugly, and will resist heat better than metal.....

A cheap ebay intake pipe is as good as any name brand pipe. Slap on an AEM dryflow and your done. lol may even work better than big name companys.

I made a custom 3" SRI. No CEL. Overall I spent about $150.00 but it's exactly how I wanted it.
