This should tell you all you need to know. You will need to find a tube, ZZ performance sell it by the foot. You then need a filter. Check the size of the inlet of the throttle body and match the tube to that size, then match the filter to that as well.

but do i need to build a box? of can i just buy the hose and the filter and be done with it, bc to be honest, the only real reason i want a COI is because i herd that it make the supercharger whine a little bit more, so yea do i need to build the box or just let it lay out by itself?

A CAI means cold air intake. If you just have a hose and the cone filter and leave it in the engine bay, you have close to what is considered a HAI (hot air or warm air intake). If you going for the whine affect, may I suggest that you continue the hose to the fender well and turn it into a fender well cold air intake. If you build the box around it, you are then making an isolation from the warm/hot air and with the box mounted where the old air box was, it will draw cool air through the air intake hole in the front clip.

ok i see what you are talking, that makes complete sense, so to go for the whine it would be better to build the box

The whine will be there, the box keeps it as a CAI and will increase your performance. More whine would be created by making it a fender well intake.
