that intake was a little custom job i made. I got all the intake parts from autozone. made a little bracket to hold the filter up off the ground and the 3 little vacumm tubes that goes into the stock intake fit right into the pre bought tubing. its a pretty easy task to do. I'll get some more pics up later today. :yes:
