3 inch piping from super cheap and silicone hosing as required, i pretty much a*** it just took the original ducting in and guessed what i needed, the silicone hosing isn't cheap tho. Cut the 3rd rocker cover stud flat as it will rub on the piping. Expect it to rub on the inside of the bonnet too unless you can get the exact piping bent for you. I was gunna use this setup as a guide to get my own bent to the right size and weld it up.
Good luck

Your engine bay looks smick :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Nice intake BTW :D At the moment I am just running the EF intake with an 80mm airbox outlet, seems to work alot better than the stock EL air intake.

You could also just get a rocker cover bolt of an EL instead of cutting it or the first bolt of a wreck ef cover.

That Aunger cold air intake snorkel is massive compared too the stock V8 EL GT one I am using, about 3 times the size!!!!!!!.

go to the wreckers and by a standard au pipe (exacly the same shape as ef and el) and take it to an exhaust joint as a sample. then u can pull the top off your airbox, pull the reducer sleeve out, undo the 4 bolts, turn the pipe around, bolt back in from opposte side, and cut the excess plastic pipe sticking out from the airbox. it will make it 4" pipe on the inside of the lid and 3" on the outside, its a little bit of f**k round but it works good,then just run a silcone joiner.
i got a 3" mandrel bend pipe made for $120. then made an adaptor to take a ba gtp air box. ill post pics up soon of how it looks. only cost $400 to made it but made a little bit more power but the throttle was heaps "snappier"
