Yeah got it from a hot rod shop. Tim's hot rods. ( 509-926-1429 ). I don't remember how much it was. It was a kit, came with the hose and fittings. Hope this helps

Some Advise is to make or buy a cold air intake set-up. The MAF register IAT temps and with the Air cleaner right behind the radiator the motor will always be pulling timing because of higher intake air temps.

Get the air inlet away from the backside of radiator.

We moved my intake an picked up 20 + horse and the IAT are now under 80 degrees and were over 120 degrees with pulling in radiator hot air.

Hope this helps you out.

Real Nice build.

2001-2004 Chevy Pickup 4.8 thru 6.0 have a small clean looking intake set-up. Might work for your application.

Car is looking beautiful. Good luck with the leak. I know you probably have- but check the oil pressure sender behind the intake make sure its snug. Have seen them leak pretty good.

I dig the pro touring look but in your case I also like the way you have it now. I have been considering those style wheels on my cutlass but the problem is I can't find the right offset to fit my car with out having to spend big bucks on custom made wheels.
