I sleep with my injen intake next to me every night, but I totally support people making their own. I rocked the airbox mod for quite sometime before saving up the cash for this thing.

Parts are from spectre sold at autozone, schmucks, all over I think this is what you need
8208 Universal modular kit
8698 90 degree elbow, or a 8791 90 degree elbow boot
9405 Maf adapter
8132 Cone filter

I think that covers it other then silicone couplers, and other accessories i think Spectre makes a heat shield also. Spectre Performance - Official Site like i said autozone, schucks, a lot of regular retailers sell this stuff. And its not a bad idea that after a while to upgrade the filter. Just my 2 cents



Please Excuse the bad picture in my sig, but my sig has a link to the new awy my car looks in a much better light

160 MPH SS/SC Cluster, Air box mod, Custom Spectre Short Ram Intake, Back on Steelies for the Winter

Shit...I used the stock airbox...put a K&N drop in filter in there so I didn't have to worry about the MAF issue...then I took a saw and gutted the entire bottom...then used a silicone reducer to a piece of metal pipe then a 90* eblow to the TB...done. Works awesome.
