Also, you make sure to run the correct schedule 3", scheduled 40 is a little too thick. Have to use the septic pvc. It's a little smaller in total circumference and will fit the factory opening in the engine compartment. With 40 you have to have to widen the opening, that's a PITA. I know, built my own intakes from scratch at one time lol. 3 of them to be exact. One of them I used exhaust piping. Almost 15 years ago for these trucks lol. Still have the pics.

I've been thinking of doing this myself. You used 3" septic pvc?

Yea, 3" thin wall, non-perforated, non lined septic. The stuff is used from building to tank, tank to field and also field header pipe I believe. See, I follow my shiiii as well

I think mine is ABS, IIRC. For some reason, I was thinking it was 4 inch though.

I used a 3in Inner Diam or so rad hose when I did the Gotts Mod on my pickup, Tomorrow I can take some pictures with measurements and what not. even used the hose clamp that was on there before.

Edit:
I found old pictures from when I did it.
Before (Stock Intake Hose):


After: (Rad Hose)



After (Rad Hose Installed):
