Hey, thanks for the advice. I will definitely look into that. It seems like that pipe is 3 1/2" diameter. I think at my local autozone they only had those pipes you're talking about in 3" diameter but I will double check.

if i'm not mistaken there is a rubber adapter that converts the tubing from 3" to 3 1/2"

i did my filter just like you but added the chrome bend pipe xdevolution was speaking of

That looks good! What did you do about the electronic piece or sensor that plugs into the tube before the filter?

The part u connect ur cone filter to is 3.5" your correct but the actual inner diamter of the mass airflow pipe is 2.38" you have to try and get a pipe as close in diameter as the maf pipe. Im running a 3" pipe now but im gonna reduce it to 2.5". Alot of the aftermarket companies do a stepped pipe set up. Theyll do 2.5"-2.38"-2.5". As the pipe diameter. A good intake to look at is the dc sport intake. Thats a great example to look at.

Here's what I have guys. Ripped out the air box and put on a 3 1/2 inch Spectre filter. My buddy made me a mounting bracket real quick coming off the battery. Don't mind all the salt hopefully the cold weather will break and I can clean her up. Let me know what you guys think.
