Question CV PI Zip Tube

Has anybody tried using the CV PI Zip Tube from Lonnie on a stock '95 4.6 using the stock air box? I built a tube out of mandrel exhaust tubing to remove the air silencer but I am not totally happy with the way it turned out. I was also thinking of getting the Marauder airbox and maf but I'm very low on cash at the moment.

Thanks

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than to be selfish and worry about my liver.'

Are you trying to use this in place of the violin case that leads to the TB? If so, it may not clear the fuel rail on the pass. side.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

Yeah the tube I built is made out of 3" exhaust tubing with a 3" mandrel bent 45 by the TB that I modified slightly. Where the tube crosses over the fuel rail I had to use my press and squish it out a bit to get it to clear. Now if the CV tube is soft enough rubber I was thinking that the hood could just press it out a bit. My only concern with this a hole being rubbed in the tube eventually.

I guess my question on weather it will work or not is is it long enough to reach the stock air box and will it give enough to pass over the fuel rail and the hood.

I went to his site and looked at it, but can't tell. I'd contact him and ask. He probably has already tested it and would know.

I can't seem to find any 94/95 MN12s around here that are willing to try it. When I ask they look at me like I'm some kind of nut case.

Yeah I emailed Lonnie lastweek about it and he said the same thing there that he's said here. But I thought I would ask around and see if anyone purchased one from him and tried it without him actually knowing what it was going on.

I was actually fairly close to Lonnie this past weekend when I was moving my gf to Naples, FL. But I was in too much of a hurry to get down there and get it done. I only had three days to leave Indianapolis, get to Naples, unload her stuff and fly back.......
