There aren't too many people makin' them, SS induction seam to have that market wrapped up. There was another doing a cheaper version
but SS are seeking legal action against them for breach of copyright.
I've got a SS BA intake on my AU XR8 . Said it wouldn't fit, Ha I showed em!!
Works a treat, Pacemaker Extrators and chipped, 800km out of a 80L
tank of Premium on the hwy mostly at 110km/h (mostly mmmm).
Pretty happy with that.

when I was looking at cold air intakes for my EF all I could find was kits for bloody holdens, I ended up making my own out or 3" air seeder hose, from the airbox down across the front of the engine and through a hole cut into the plastic guard, poked it just out into the airflow to draw air directly from under the bumper, it worked a treat until I got to NSW and had to put it in for blue slip, now I just have an XR intake. that'll do until the shaker is fitted, sometime before I die.

To answer your question fordzatmyplace there is, SS Inductions. However they are fairly expensive.

SS Induction intakes can cost $200+. I know that Aunger make them too ( I did have an Aunger one initially but it was replaced by the SS Induction intake due to rubbing against the power steering pulley from a bad fit ).
