Do a search, and you will find what you are asking.

but....

cheap
BA xr6 turbo intake pipe (over radiator)
High flow panel filter
Pretty sure the EL intake tube that goes into the airbox (t/B side) has a reduced opening and should be changed - people have replaced it with a 3" straight pipe
could even put a BA intake bend from T/B to flex hose.

if you want to spend more
full 3" mandrel bent pipe from throttle body to airbox
high flow panel or Pod
and use a larger intake tube like SS inductions

Might go for the 3" mandrel bend piping, k&n panel filter and a ss induction mouth or a BA xr mouth

you can get a tickford snorkel which will take the place of your standard one but its a little bigger, run a k&n filter and then a custom 3 inch mandrel bent intake, this would do the job good enough, you can also cut the passenger side bottom air box out in the side so it can breath some air that rushes in from the blinker/ headlight if you want, i did it and gained next to nothing, but im running a standard el intake on my car which looks pretty restrictive

yea i thought they would be bigger, as many have said an AU xr8 intake mouth is good, better than the SS induction ones, so i might head down that road, and as u said trouble is finding them. And obviously the au intake would be bigger than the el tickford one.
