Default home made mods post

how many mods can you remember seeing that were from parts not intended for automotive use?

when i had my first car, i stole this kid's intake. obviously it would not fit, so i went to home depot and picked up flexable hosing (for dryers or whatever) to make an intake with the filte, im sure it didn't do anything hahaha.

the best is when the same kid i stole the intake from had a 93 prelude. he pluged one of the vaccum hoses with a golf tee so that all of the valves would be open constantly, or something. end result was a supposed 1hp difference(he read online) and bumpy idle.

I don't remember having any parts on my car that were not intended for automotive use, except for the shiftlight that used to be an in-use light add-on for a DORO telephone. Oh yeah, and the heat exchanger for my chargecooler used to be a refrigeration evaporator.
However most of the ---- on the car is home made or made fit somehow.
Homemade exhaust manifold, 8 injector setup on intake manifold, homemade ECU based on megasquirt and customised software, exhaust, driveshaft adapters, oil filter relocation adapter, air tank. The wheels have been modified, different offset and wider profile.
Fitted a Porsche 911 fuel pump.
The drivetrain is mostly out of a Toyota pickup truck, but the transmission is stock.
