Default Put a cold air intake on tonight

Not really a cold air intake yet, haven't got the heat shield yet. But I do have a question, I am temporarily using the stock black hose from the TB to my intake since I do not have a 3.5" to 3" coupler. Any ideas on where I can get one? Autozone, Advance, nor Murray'* has one. Possibly a plumber'* warehouse?

Hmm, well I looked at Lowe'* and had no luck finding a 3.5" down to a 3" flexible converter. Not good at all.

check out my forum, how to make a real cold air intake using your stock airbox(with pictures), and you can get intake tubes at autozone, just make sure you have somewhere to reinstall your temperature sensor in it

I can't do what you have. The 92-95 airboxes for the L67 are totally different.
