I posted a thread a lil while back about making a full homemade intake for our 4.3's. I found one on Ebay that is similar to what I would like to do. Being that the guys price on Ebay is pretty cheap I might just buy one and try it out. It beats paying a lot more a K&n, Volant, or AEM. Here is the link. What do you guys think? If I wanted a better filter, I would definately go with a K&N. Thanks for any input.

To be honest, I kinda like it, even though he's busting heads on shipping. Hell I may get one..I've got the stock airbox with the bottom cut out and a drop in K&N filter

k&n is not too bad of a filter..i was one this site about the better airfilter ..it was between HKS, BLITZ, APEXI, K&N....
the apexi filter won..for better Filtration and Air-Flow..if i find the site i'll post it up here..just my 2 cents :D

I got that intake, and it's great. The only problem i guess, is where that sensor, O2, or temp, I don't know, but the hole that was drilled out was almost too small to put the sensor back in. Got it after a little grinding with a file, but other than that it's great.

yeah you can buy the tubing used for intakes. Just check out a speed shop or something. I checked on some at one point in time and the shop want like $20 m/l for a straight piece bout 2 feet long and then I think $20 m/l for a slightly bent piece or a 90 bend
