Default I'd like to make a CAI/FWI for an Intrigue..Looking for ideas/suggestions.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue with the 3.5l Shortstar in it. I have already gutted my airbox out/removed all of the baffles, but I'd like to make a TRUE FWI/CAI. However, I'm not sure how difficult it'd be in my engine bay. Here are a few pictures I stole from Google. I'll take some more later and post them. I *assume* that it'* the same diameter as a Grand Prix'* air intake? Maybe? : /

Most W body guys take the airbox out. Then get a roof flashing for a large pipe and put their hose/tubing into that. Then into the fender with a cone filter.

You should be able to pick up some hose from intense racing or ZZ performance and just run it to the fender. Look to see if you have a hole to run threw first.

Do you guys know what size the stock air intake hose is? I'd like to match that, if I could.
