Default Cold air intake

Hey all,
I had a lazy weekend and I thought I would put in a cold air intake. I know, I know, everyone is going to say the stock box is the best thing. When I bought the truck the previous owner had ripped out the stock intake and put in a cone filter. So that is what I had to work with.

I started off with a high flow spectra cone air filter, a 3' x 4' piece of aluminum, a 3" diameter sewer hose, and some HVAC foil tape.

I fabricated a new air box. Attached the new air filter. Installed the new airbox. Ran the sewer hose down through the engine compartment. Fabricated a new air scoop. Attached air scoop to the sewer hose. Secured sewer hose to underside of bumper valence. Painted the scoop black.

let me know what you think.

Hard to tell but the hole in the scoop looks so small, its probably causing a loss of air flow.

It is smaller, I believe 2". Here's the thing though, I left the bottom on the airbox open for that exact reason. The sewer hose goes into the air box to help with cooler air. Sorry, I should have clarified.

That should work well better than most if not all of the high priced bought units
