So I have this gt3076 and the intake is approx 80mm I'd like an intake pipe that is either silicone or as stock looking as possible. I saw mamba intake pipes for the Evo 4-6 but realise the MAF is oval as opposed to round.

Any suggestions??

Get some alloy bends, cut them up and tape them together how you want, them drop them into a fabrication place, paint it black afterwards for the stealth look.

Plastidip for that rubber look. Grind down the welds

Plastidip wont last long once oil, radiator fluid etc spills on it.
Better off with a proper high temp black I reckon.

Get it powdercoated in black wrinkle finish. Don't paint it yourself, speaking from experience there is nothing worse than having to be careful of scratching paint when you're swinging spanners in the engine bay.

 

Did this with my rocker cover and never looked back, going to do the same with the (visible) plumbing soon.

Got it done at Hi Octane in Rydalmere, couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

$116 to sandblast and powder coat the rocker cover, and courier it to my work in North Sydney. Dropped it off on Saturday and it arrived with me the following Wednesday from memory.

Sand blasting and powder coating alone was $90.

Some might say that’s expensive but you go to the expense of building an engine, I figure it’s worth every cent.

Bloody hell that is cheap Vin.
My intake is pretty much as Ian was saying. 3 inch mandrel 90° bend with a silicone joiner at the mouth of the turbo, tapped a 1 1/4 (?) inch pipe into it for the BOV and another joiner to MAF.
Noisy when you get on it, being hard pioe and all but worth it.

Very nice! What is the battery you are using and how is it performing?

Just an Oddyssey, works well but only because it spends it's life on trickle charge.
