No not making a giant vacuum. Thinking about an intake tube, to replace the factory one. Otherwise I am thinking about making one out of four inch tubing. just a thought.

hmmm, I dont know. Id just use the 4"tubing. I think the flex pipe would be kinda risky to use in that situation. Plus the 4" 4"tubing would look better

Don't do it allready tried it.

1.It doesn't quite bend that well when it is cut short.
2.It does let little dirt in.

Thanks, I will do the tubing then. Just a thought would be easy to do. Wanted to know if dirt would get in.
