Home Made CAI??

I have seen a few posts here and there of guys making there own intake using the stock air box with 4" pvc tubing. The few posts I saw were on lb7 trucks, I have an 05 LLY, there is a difference, Right?

I would like to see if anyone has made a homemade intake for their LLY truck????

How does it work??
Any better performance or mileage??
Did you connect the pvc 45s with regular PVC cement??

ALSO>>>>

What is the thing on the intake that says, 6.6 liter Turbo Diesel????
Is it a silencer of some sort?? Any way to take it off the stock tube???

First, the cia isn't pvc, but ABS. And yup, I used abs glue to connect it.

You prolly won't feel much difference in power if any, but more cool air coming into the motor, is always a good thang.
