Fender Wall Intake.

I've got a 99 and it is different for me. The 00+ has more protection for the filter than the earlier body styles

That kit you posted is one option. the same thing can be done with a K&N drop in filter and gutting your current box.

The thrasher is a little high. Check this one from Intense

Intense FWI

Saves a little for another mod
