      ok so i ordered the pieces i needed and the 45 degree off the inlet seemed to be better accompanied by a 90 degree fitting. no problem i made it work since shipping took way too long. got the air filter and breather filter and everything on the cheap. so WIN ... so i thought.. went to puty everything together and realized tubing i had was 3" ID instead of OD which didnt work out so long story short i used the 45 degree 2.5 inch to 3" and went to autozone and got that black retractable hose stuff and used that for my piping and just used that all to the air filter lol. i waited weeks to just get let down but oh well. it works with no problems and i dreadfully have just ziptied the filter to the air inlet on the backside of the grille. like i said ill update with pics tomorrow. definitely more sound from the engine and obvious recalculation/blow off noise. and to be honest with all the plastic stuff on these engines the tubing i used doesn't look all that terrible for what it is.

      Finally got around to getting all the parts ordered to make one. I think i may do mine differently though. Also ordered some black heat wrap cause i like the way yours looks. Cost of parts was $70.

      So i just checked the space in between the body and the headlight and a 3" pipe can fit. Based on my measurements, I need a 16" strsight and a 45 degree bend and I should be good. I thing the body and heatlight should be good enough to hold it (so I dont have to worry about mounting). Last step would be where to draw the cold air from. I was thinking of installing a low-profile scoop under the car to direct flow. Gotta do some more brainstorming.

      Sounds good. Need to change the reducing coupling to a reducing 45° so i can get it to sit a little lower.i wanted to turn it to the left where the factory box mounts but i didnt want to do that much work.
