And you can buy any ole intake from Ebay for the bonne..it'll fit. Won't necessarily help you much.

The rice pipe mod is a little costlier but great performance

Sorry I should have elaborated... Compared to the stock airbox, however when I put on one..it was getting air from right behind the headlight. Whereas most of the short ram ones on ebay do not extend far forward. In my opinion they are grabbing warmer air that has come through the radiator.

in case my inital post gives the impression i am trying to be an ***, let me say im not

1993SLE (i dont know why i dont know your name yet) its tough to tell with all the insulation, but in what ways does your setup differ from the routing of the stock airbox? (specifically between the filter and the mass air)

Pat'* intake is setup just like mine. The only difference is that he has a generic ricer pipe where mine was an ADTR. Both of our heatshields are custom.

my Box uses the entire area behind the headlight to draw in air instead of a little tube like the stocker

and I have a smooth bend pipe (with the accordian tube ) acting as the reducer to the.TB \
Note i left the accordian on because i have massive amounts of flex in the engine and the Box is mounted to the car....i needed soemthing more than a little silicon reducer to keep the TB from ripping off the intake
