That'* actually what I ended up doing for mine because it was an awkward angle and PVC pipe wouldn't cut it.

Auto zone also sells a small piece of pipe with a bung for the temp sensor. Made of plastic, but it does the trick.

There is a kit for a fender well intake.
Here'* one for 97s:

And the complete Intense-Racing air intake & such page:

You can piece together an intake from them so you can use tubing with a smooth interior wall, good flexing, and larger sizes instead of just 3" in plastic. Any way you want to do it is fine, though, as I see it, since it should be better than the stock intake. Should, meaning that the more effort and planning, the better the outcome. Some of our best results we've seen so far have been from the Intense kit, though that'* not entirely objective.

The hose is probably the best part, which you can get for an easy $15.00 per foot at 4". If you're staying with the stock throttle body size, I suggest at least 3.5" though you can still go with 4" if you'd like. I have some 3.5" tubing somewhere in my garage, and it is fantastic stuff! Soon I'll order some 4" to replace my drain pipe air intake.
