Idea How to build cai

I dont wanna spend $200+ on a Cold Air Intake.

Anyone know how to build one for my 2004 Ion with a 2.2 ecotech engine? What kind of pipe, material etc needed and were to get it.

Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Ebay usually has the best deals when it comes to an intake. An ebay cheapie is the same exact thing as an AEM except it has a dryflow filter instead... Ebay is the best way to go then buy the filter only afterwards (a dryflow)

just go to autozone/pep boys and build one with the spectre stuff... you have an 04 so you dont have to worry about the MAF, and you can ghetto rig up one of the sensor adapters (i'm thinking a ford one, my friend did it, i dont recall) and it will work fine. i built mine for like $75
