Have a look through that thread.

A BA intake pipe and flexi pipe should cost $50 or so... Then just get some SS pipe or similar and attach pod.

Or, you could get right royally carried away and do something nifty yourself...

This works well, in combination with some grille modification to let the cold air in...

Ah well... Have a look at the photos in my gallery and you'll see how the air goes through a large hole in the nose cone of the bonnet to the pod filter... All up, this entire thing cost about $100 and I can highly recommend it. Not sure how you'd feel about cutting some air slots in your EF Fairmont grille, or replacing it with something else, but even without the gapping hole in the front the system would still work better than standard EF...

(Of course, being my own invention I would say that..)
