CF IC piping/delivery pipe project




So this should be my next project... ETS front mount and custom carbonfiber IC setup/intake tube/delivery pipe

tell me what you think... I haven't seen it done yet... I cant find any carbon bends so I'll just use black or blue samco couplings

I assume its for weight reduction only?

While silicone pipes are wicked strong, I have yet to hear about any breaking.

just for looks and something different... yeah I suppose their lighter in weight but not a huge difference.

"Carbon Fiber does not transfer heat like aluminum does, so it would only get warm on the side that directly faces the headers. It will not pick up the heat from the headers and transfer it around to the entire piece creating an oven like environment like the aluminum ones on the market will."

I love carbon fiber, but are you sure the gains will be worth the price?

i think thats a kick ass idea! bummer they only go up to 2" ID though...

personally I'm still trying to find some truck radiator tubing or something along those lines to use instead of the partly-un-bead-rolled aluminum piping I'm using now

I looked into this and the main problem is retaining the hoses to the hardlines. Since you cannot bead the composite tube like ALU or SS tube. Might be able to mask and sandblast the ends so there is a texture for teh hose to bite. Then there is the issue with the fibers.. I don't want to feed my engine any carbon fiber.

The kit I used was $65. It may seem like a lot of the kits on there are the same, but look around a bit..you'll see some other stragglers.
If I were gonna spend that much on just the plumbing for it, I would've gotten an ETS to begin with. Not saying that to spite you, just thinking out loud . Good luck, whichever way you go. Intercooler piping isn't the most fun thing you'll work on.
