Default IHI RHB5 Upgrade

This was an original CarTech IHI turbo kit. After reading about the upgrade to the Turbo Coupe compressor I started started picking up parts on Ebay. I had Blouch Turbo do the actual rebuild/assembly/re-balance. I added a Garrett adjustable wastegate actuator and a Ebay intercooler. So far everything is going back together well. The only issue I have left to deal with is adding a air filter, the stock Turbo Coupe adapter is angled downward a little to much. I was thinking of making a straight spigot and just mounting a cone shape filter. But if anyone can show me a better option I would appreciate it.
