Good luck!
I am Not arguing about Fuel Economy, I just want to warn you that I have read that PVC piping is TOXIC.

You could die from the fumes that the PVC will emit, thus I added the Link to show alternative way to Make an Intake Piping. I am not a Fuel expert; if Cold Air is better than Warm/Hot Air for Fuel economy.

but I do want you to be SAFE
