    hi guys got my viper induction kit and came with the tin intake pipe and i really do not like the look of the silver pipe never mind how cheap it is and i would prefer black!!

    i have looked on ebay and they range in prices but decent 1 seems about 20bucks delivered so question is,

    would any1 suggest truck water pipes??

    27bucks and my mates and brothers have all suggested there the best as there designed for trucks so they are perfectly fine for a car wont perish and definetly up to the job!!

    would you guys agree with this idea of using truck water pipe as an intake or go for the pipe that comes with the kit!!??

    cheers

    Would not waste my time painting it as it is cheap crap it's the silver aluminum tin stuff from halfords for a tenner that ain't a solid tube it's 3inch tin rolled around to give the effect

    The intake pipe I received is not the 1 that comes with the kit new so sum1 has added the halfords tin stuff so either truck hose or eBay to buy the original intake pipe

    Don't know what a truck hose looks like, I'd always go for a solid metal tube. Cheap enough from any local motor factors.

    They supplied you with that expandable silver tube lol abit like a slingy?
