How to Customize a Universal Cold Air Intake Filter System
Spectre Performance demonstrates in this video how to customize a universal cold air intake kit using parts you can find at your local neighborhood Pep Boys. Using universal parts you can simply assemble them in any fashion to create the look you want to make.
First we take off the existing air cleaner and install a single 4 inch plenum. Lay the plenum where your air filter was and put it in any direction you like. Screw on the plenum with the existing air filter nut or a custom nut of your choice. You will need couplers that will connect the different intake tubes together that can be turned to mold within your engine compartment. Simply slide on the coupler to the plenum and fit accordingly. Secure the clamp on the coupler to the ridge inside and then you can add additional tubing for the length you desire. Remember not to tighten the clamps too hard, because you may need to move your tubing around until you create a final fit. Rotate and adjust as needed. Attach your air filter to the end of the tubing. You can find inserts that go into the filter to accommodate a 3 or 3.5 inch tube. Once you have the final placement in place, be sure then to go back and tighten all of the clamps to hold the filter system securely in place.
The advantages to having a custom air intake filter system located in the front of your engine is that you can take advantage of the air stream and receive colder air going into the intake system instead of the hot air that your standard filter was providing. Customizing your cold air intake system is pretty simple once you know a few simple tricks. Not only will your new custom air intake system look great, but it will increase your engine's overall performance.

Homemade Spectre Cold Air Intake on a Ford Taurus
A video of my homemade cold air intake for my Taurus. I used a Spectre highflow air filter, a Spectre throttle body adapter, and Spectre hose. The filter cost about $25, the adapter $11, and the hose 15. It took me about an hour to install. The car is a lot louder and deeper when you rev it and put the pedel to the floor. You can definitely feel it pull harder when you gun it. I also did it for improved fuel economy. Any questions about the intake or instalation just ask me, i'd be happy to do a vid. Thanks for watching!
