Your assumption of IAT would be credible. Going to 3" intake would allow for alot of extra length before it would impact anything negatively. You can't benefit from Ram air effect until speeds in excess of 100MPH and we have had references to quite a few tests proving that out. OEM Ram Air setups are for looks. Detroit isn't above rice when it suits them. Dan'* suggestion is a good one. The air is just as cool coming from the fenderwell and then you dont have to worry about the rain. 90 degree elbows are constrictive. You could use a coupler for the IAT and it'* enough of a straight shot to the fenderwell hole to make it with the flexible pipe.

I knew you had to be going fast to have true "Ram air" but I dident know it had to be up to
100MPH.
and havind the sharp bend Is something I was trying to stay away from, but they dident have much of a selection when it came to pvc elbow'*.
Im going to try and do away with the rubber hose'* too, Im guessing the ribs in them arent
helping anything.
seeing how easy it is to put the iat sensor into a piece of pvc, im going to try diffrent designs and see which one I like the best.
the filter will be moved into the hole where the canister is asap, I just have to figure out the best place for the canister.
thank you all for the positive feedback

So I did what you guys sugested, I took the evap thing out of it'* hole and put the filter in it.
it worked perfectly because the filter is about the same size as the hole so the chrome ring around it supports it and kinda acts like a heat shield.
I zip-tied the evap thing to the holes behind the headlight also

That looks better. Now you just need to loose the sharp bend and your all set.

You can find Black ABS fittings. Especially at mobile home dealers/parts distributors and plumbing supply houses. I think you could just use a coupling to drill a hole for the IAT and bend the hose.
