Default Looking for a CHEAP intake pipe, Less then $40 (This doesn't go in the WTB section)

I know they're out there I just can't find it.
I don't need it to say Joe Z or Injen or any of that. I just need an intake pipe that is aluminum or steel I don't really care which that will mate up to my stock TB and my lower intake box that I cut to look like an F-sport (thanks to Mike on that one)
Nothing special, no awesome colors or any of that.
The one I currently have (thanks to Mike again) is perfect however I want to get it painted. Problem is I don't want to run with an open throttle body and no filter for a couple of days as I wait for it to get painted. I also don't want to buy a stock one because once I get done painting the one under my hood now I'll then take this one I'm made a thread about it and paint it another different color so I can swap out between shows, etc...
My engine covers are all painted, my worthless mod of a strut bar just got done being painted, my oil cap also has been painted, & so now it's time for my intake pipe to go under the sprayer.

Thanks in advance.

Basically looking for what you see in this pic minus the huge name on the intake pipe. Just want a pipe with no name on it at all. Not painted to make it cheaper too.

Wonder if Joe can make it without his name on it and without paint? Possibly less expensive?

Since you only need it for a few days, rather than spend $30-40 on some ghetto fabulous pipe nobody will want when you're done with it, why not buy a Joe Z pipe (supporting an owner and forum member) and then resell it for $10-20 less after the few days you need to use it?

I always thought the "Joe Z" section of the pipe was just a sticker anyway?

Like Kurtz said....it's always easier to sell a name brand product than it is selling garbage.

His comes in black, polished or blue.

Powdercoating is the way to go IMO!

It is a Joe Z sticker which I left off my black pipe.

EPIC thread......

Sounds like you just need to re-install the OEM intake tube, while your paint dries..


Also for the record, we don't "paint" the intake colors.... We put them through a High End anodizing process...
