    DIY Upgraded metal intake nipple...No more plastic

    Note: Not responsible for any damage to you or your car, this worked on my car so will work on yours

    This DIY also assumes you know how to take off your intake....I would not sugeest doing this while intake is on car as debris will not be removed correctly.

    Got sick and tired of having the cheap plastic nipple and decided to upgrade the nipple to a metal fitting.
    I chose to use a 1/8th by 1/8th NPT threaded fitting, if you want larger I would still suggest using a 1/8th NPT thread foot print.

    Hope this saves somone from a costly not needed intake placement.

    The pictures are bad. Can't even see what the diy is about. You should post at least one picture that is farther away to see the part involved in the process. I can't even remember a hose being attached to the intake.

    That's not the air intake, but intake manifold. Those who have broken the nipple or have installed a boost guage can easily identify this nipple.

    I guess someone has never heard of the term or used sarcasm, I thought thats what emoticons were used for when being sarcastic via text, to infer your sarcasm. I guess you missed the 2 smiley faces in the post. Thats cool

    I judged wanted to show how easy it is....way better than buying another intake. You need to make us a aluminium intake!

    Picture says a thousand words. Great job Rob as always Click here to enlarge Way easier to point someone at a thread than writing a paragraph and going back/forth 10 times on especially simple things such as this.

    Hey Rob!
    Great DIY. I had heard there are some problems with JB bonding with plastics, is this a special formulation or did I receive some bad information? It probably doesn't matter in this application because you're using the JB Weld to provide a seal, I might recommend some type of liquid gasket or liquid rubber cement (I'm sure there's something for this application) because these are two different materials which will expand and contract differently with temperature differences.

    This JB weld is for plastic...the metal to etal JB weld is a no go I believe....could also use silicone sealent...it is good to 400 degrees.

    Don't worry Tony, he's the same guy that takes someone that questions cost cutting in a $60k performance car and assumes they 'just don't understand pure sports cars' or some other such garbage. All passive-aggressive about it too. So it's just par for the course Click here to enlarge

    I knew instantly he was talking about the intake manifold. Guess you shouldn't be attempting this DIY.

    I know how to take apart my intake manifold, but would still use this DIY as a guide if my nipple broke. Haters gonna hate.
