The insane popularity of LS swaps into just about any car or truck you can imagine has led to a huge after market following. There are plenty of parts that are made specifically for some of the more popular LS swaps, but anytime you put an engine in a car it wasn’t designed for you’re going to have to get creative in some areas.
One area that can be difficult to find a part specifically made for your swap is the air intake. Forget about piecing together an intake from Home Depot couplers and cheap eBay piping – there’s a better answer. Our buddies over at Airaid actually make a kit called the U-Build-It system that is a heaven-sent for LS swappers.
The UBI kit comes with a wide variety of angles, straight pipes, and couplers that you can cut however you need to snake through your engine bay. There are literally thousands of possible intake combinations. If you want, you can purchase the UBI kit with just tubes or as a master kit that includes all the tubing, couplers, clamps, brackets, hardware and a huge Airaid premium conical air filter. Best of all, the UBI kits can be had in sizes from 3-inch tubing with a 6-inch air filter, all the way to massive 6-inch tubing with a massive 12-inch filter, in half-inch increments. It’s totally up to you on how much airflow you think your swap might need. For more info, check out the UBI kits on Airaid’s website.
