Get a filter that has a hole for the IAT sensor.

Don't stick the pipe in the accordian, you'll make it VERY turbulent like that. A 3" rubber coupler is $3 at any home improvement store for pipes. It'* not as giving as silicone, but it'* not as expensive either.

Just what I was going to say. 3" pipe coupler, bud. That make the outside dimension 3 1/2". Here'* a pic of mine. I used all PVC. Notice the pipe coupler that the filter clamps to:




The one you want will be rubber fot the metal tube.

Actually, if you look at my pic above, the piece the connects the PVC elbow to the TB is a 3" rubber coupler. It will be black like that. Now that I think about it, the one you will want is a 3" to 3 1/2" coupler with a 3"-4" long piece of tube to attach the filter to. The rubber coupler will not be stiff enough to clamp to.

In any case, do whatever you can to stick with a 3" pipe, or you'll defeat the whole purpose and won't gain anything.

Go to truevalue, ace.etc... and get a 3.5 to 3 inch rubber connector. called something like a elbow to pipe connector. i have one and has been working for the last 5 months, and very flexible unlike the other pieces you will see at the store, so make sure you dont get a stiff one.
