would it be possible to make a setup like that using large exhaust pipe fittings? you can get them with smooth bends and they come in different lengths and sizes. just paint it red and away you go!

Ya that should be possible. Anything (almost) is possible. Use your imagination, you'll be surprised what you can come up with, and how much you'd save.

But nothing beats a true CAI.

Well on PFYC.com they have a 27$ kit designed for K&N Air filters that'* designed for a Grand Prix..so it'* a few inches short of the headlight (with a 9" K&N Filter) ..the 9 incher is only like 50$ so total it was under 80$ for everything and it'* a sure thang

That just looks like a long 45 degree 3" PVC elbow. That doesnt cost more than a couple of dollars.

I went to an exhaust shop and had them bend a 45 in a piece of 3" pipe. They charged me 5 bucks. I measured the pipe, cut it myself and painted it bright red. I connected it to the throttle body with a 4" rubber plumbing fitting from Home Depot (4 bucks). (It easily sucks down to the 3" pipe diameter.) I drilled a hole in the elbow (the pipe'*, not mine) and mounted the air flow sensor using high temp red silicone. Add 9" K&N filter. Looks like I spent 200 bucks. Works like a charm.
