    Cold Air Intake, is it viable to make your own?

    Im no mechanic, but looking at some of the off the shelf products already available, they seem to be just a few pieces of pipe and a pod filter on the end. These usually go for $250+ which isn't out of the budget, but it's also at that limit where I think to myself "Well I could build one for...

    just experimenting with the air intake on a vy commodore. would this setup work to my advantage? ive seen this on another car before. ive cut the bottom of the snorkel to let air in through the grill and into the air intake rather than trying to cram it all under the closed hood.
