Good question! This is ghetto but I wrapped a section of the dryer tubing with electrical tape. I used about half of a large roll. It was difficult to get the tubing in but it made a tight section and it handled the pressure well. I was able to get the taped section under the adjustable clamp. Its a tight seal.What did you use to back the dryer tube as it went into that piece of factory air tube? There's no way the dryer tube can handle that clamp being tightened enough to seal up the inconsistent surfaces of the dryer tube against the smooth inside of the stock rubber tube... ?
Good advice. Im planning on changing the intake piping soon. When making it we were a little impatient and most places were closed. I actually wanted to lower the tubing into the hole which the end of the filter meets.Nice welds!
Dryer tube won't absorb so much heat that it'll affect the incoming air. You could argue the incoming air will cool down the tube if anything. At least we're not looking at the ol'PVC pipe intake.
Was there a resonator box that you pulled out from the bumper? Go for the trifecta and get some plastic vent tube in that spot pointed up to the filter....and make a shield around the filter to direct heat away.

My car got faster with a HOT air intake. Probably cause the air going into the LIM is 350* at full boost no matter what unless you IC it.soooo now that you made a HOT air intake..... your car is prolly slower than it was with the stock air box that actually pulled air from outside the engine compartment.
