Intake pipe: Angry Duck Tofu Racing (no longer available)
Silicon Reducer: Came with the intake pipe
Filter: K&N X-Stream RX-4750
Heat Shield: Totally custom. Aluminum angle brackets and acrylic from Home depot,
attached directly to the filter (one of the nice features about that filter is the fact that
it has a flat base. It also has a provision for the IAT sensor, as well as being a
large oval base for greater surface area). Laser engraving by myself.
Scoops: 92-95 SSE/SSEi Exhaust heat shields
Scoop blankoff plates: Aluminum sheetmetal
Scoop flanges: Offset Electrical nipple.
Tubing: Run of the mill reinforced flexible tubing from a local supply house (A-1 coupling
in Albany, OR)
SC duct: 3" 45 Ell (electrical EMT conduit....plastic.....from home depot)

The tubing willwren has, you can get something similiar to it in size from Auto Zone if you cant find anything else. Not sure on how to safely relocate the battery, but I am sure local shops around you can be able to do it. Is that hood scoop on your hood functioning? Just curious

No its just for looks, I told my dad I wanted a scoop and he went and got it done one day while i was at school and i didnt exactly mention I wanted a certain kind and wanted it functional. O well alot of ppl comment on how similar it looks to a mustang hood. So I like it.

The one I saw at Autozone had something like "Ram Air Tubing", and it was black, and about 2 inches in diamater. Im sure if you asked for a way to get outside air into your engine they would be able to help you. The dryer ducting is available just about anywhere, but might be to big. I know I had to squish it down fine behind the headlamp.

if the inside of that back-rubber tube is smooth I would leave it there, as you have a sensor between the two pipes. Then you could use a straight pipe to get the filter where you need it. That would simplify alot. You might want to dissassemble some stuff and take measurements of what you need before you go out and buy everything.
