Default Throttle body inlet?

Ok so with my install just about a week away... I have been going over some things in my head and had a question about what the best way to go would be for the throttle body inlet... I found this -->

MazdaSpeed Miata Throttle Inlet Tube, Stock Replacement

Is it worth it? It's $110 + Shipping if I get it with the GM Iat sensor bung on it (Which will kill 2 birds with one stone, because I could avoid having the bung welded to the IC or one of my IC pipes...

Is there a better option? I have an e-bay misc piping kit and at first was thinking I would just use that to run straight to the TB... But what about the other connections that need to be made for lines running there...

I'm sure I will have a couple more questions that come up before the 3rd so I will use this thread to bring them up as they come along.

I think that tube is designed to be direct fit to the MSM intake manifold and intercooler.

Ordered the FM hose... $125 shipped with the T-Bolt clamp. Hopefully it's worth it lol
