from the air box t the throttlebody is always a good idea... :wink: in a three inch mandrel bent size... most exhaust shops could knock you up one... :wink: and yes... i do have a 3 inch mandrel bent intake....

same here i'm running a three piece 3' system to the tb.just make sure you have the ef airbox back plate with the bellmouth as it already has a 3' opening rather than the el-au which only has a 2.5' opening!

yes..as you'd have a mis matched size difference when you went to connect it to the throttlebody with the rubber ef sleve..

see most of the intake is 3' already on the el-au's only the bit that goes into the airbox goes to 2.5' and that's where the restriction is!
