UPDATES ON ARRIVAL
For EL owners note:
Throttle body opening is an OVAL shape measuring 85mm at its largest point. So you will need a small amount of tube to connect the intake to your TB - You will also need to block off the PVC Valve hole on the intake

Autobarn have nothing for us EL owners. Try Purple Pig!
