I just got a IAT sensor from the junk yard to put on my PVC intake but i dont have the gasket. Can i just drill a hole and silicon the sensor to the PVC? If so, what kind of silicon do I get?

Any RTV silicone will do. The intake doesn't get that hot. You could also use a 5 min epoxy.

Make sure the sensor extends into the middle of the tube. Don't get any RTV or epoxy on the business end of the sensor. IMPORTANT: if the intake is already installed, don't run the car until the RTV is completely dry. I'd let it sit a day to be sure. If using epoxy, you can run after drying 15 min.

Any auto parts store should carry them. Hardware and dept stores usually, too.

I just got my pvc intake on today...and like everyone else says it's probably one of the coolest mods you'll do. The blower whine is intoxicating!

cardomain modified all the urls of my photos. I edited them.

This probably happened to some of my other posts, so just let me know if it comes up.

If I had to do it again, I'd just get a silicone reducer.

Ohh, looks like I have another project to put on the list. Not too big of a fan of the PVC look though. Might have to go the Spectre look. Not sure.

Good info in the thread though.

i personally like the PVC look over the spectre look, not to mention you can go with 4" PVC instead of the 3" spectre.
also, you can paint the PVC instead of having white or the chrome spectre:

Probably cheaper too. Maybe I'll give it a try and spray it black. Its just the idea of using plumbing for a house in the engine bay of a car is weird to me! If it works then why not though.

PVC is a great insulator. compared to stainless or alu,it will keep incoming air cooler and denser.and if your stuck in the middle of nowhere,you can crap in it...

It's also good to know PVC will begin to melt if boiling coolant or hot steam makes contact for a long enough period. Probably not a huge concern, but if your engine overheats, or there is a fire, you'll need to build a new one.

if my car catches fire, i think a PVC intake would be #5673 on my list of things to worry about lol
That being said, i have a metal 3.5" WAI now b/c after i put in the N* i couldnt fit the PVC in there.

ive always wondered about this, couldnt you take a dremel and sand down the edge of the PVC on the inside and out on the end with the N* to fit? thats the part that youre talking about not fitting right?
