DCAI DIY: ROBERT MAIER EDITION

 

EASY DIY TO GET YOUR CAR TO BREATHE FOR

 

If you are looking to get your car to breathe more air and cooler air, then it is time to upgrade to a DCAI, meaning Dual Cold Air Intake. See more information on why this could be good for your car [HERE]. This modification, eg. a Needswings DCAI can swiftly and easily be purchased from www.crossfiremarket.com [HERE], but if you like, there are DIYs and step by step instructions made in order to purchase parts and build your own DCAI. Thanks goes out to Robert Maier making this. See below for the instructions.

Comments to diagramme to the right:

 

  • 1+2: 3” Aluminium Bushings, (scrap) for better clamping
  • 3: Filters
  • 4: Goodyear Versiflo Hose
  • 5: 3½” Y-pipe, cut it to correct length.
  • 6: Also, cut four ½” long cuts along the y-pipe to be able to clamp on with the hose clamp.
  • 7: 3½” to 3” reducers.
  • 8+9: 3” polished aluminum pipes.

 

Note: Clean out all filing from pipes as you go.

Clamps at all openings.

 

Comments: If you look at the diagram on point 5 and 6 you will see the cuts in the shortened Y pipe I made four cuts 1/2” long. The pipes goes on over the rubber seal at the throttle body, then the clamp goes over it. The slots are there to tighten the pipe over the rubber seal. Once you tighten the clamp it fits perfectly. Can't tell you how much to cut off the bottom of the Y pipe, when having everything off I measured FIVE times the distance from where the Y pipe will clamp on to the throttle body to the firewall. You don't want to screw this part up you only have ONE Y pipe. The old saying “measure twice cut once” is something to remember doing this project. Also I only moved the right power steering clamp back about 1” or 2” to give the right air filter a little more room. Grill is a tight fit but it will go back on.
