Low Budget Intake







For those of you looking for an inexpensive alternative to the aftermarket this is what I came up with. Here is a list of components and prices.

Parts List
1 - DAYCO hose # 71593 fits 92'-96' Dodge Dakota lower hose $14.69
4 - Hose clamps @ 1.23 $4.92
1 - 1 7/8" O.D. x 1 3/4" I.D. x 1 1/8" long Exhaust Tubing $2.00
22" - 7/16" I.D. Gas Line & 2 hose clamps $4.10
1 - 7/16" Hose Barb Fitting $4.00
TOTAL $29.71

Tools needed... Razor blade knife, Drill with drill bits, Time

As you can see from the picture the crankcase is vented directly into the airbox.

Yup, looks functionally like the $95 Evilution hose I just bought.

Does it come in blue?
