Home made intake

I'm new but I thought I would put this on here. I like to "do it yourself".
This intake is 100% home made. I don't know if it works like a store bought one but the 3000+ rpm is definitely stronger.
My write up on it needs to be better organized but you can get the idea.
I've had it on for a couple thousand miles now.

All I know is if I take them off I get excellent gas mileage.
