Default Intake piping to swap out the Greddy pipe and the airbox.

I was looking around the CXRacing site trying to find something that works, but figured I'd ask for some suggestions from folks that have already done this. Not sure if I should have posted this in the DIY forum or here.

I'm going to an MS and will remove the AFM, so at that point I'd probably want to throw in a new intake pipe and rearrange things a bit to fit better. I've got the Stripes pipes and IC setup on it and will probably keep that.

Any ideas?

You probably know about Intercooler Pipe Fabrication - Silicone Intake Systems Auto Parts but I'll mention it anyway.

Here's a shot of my bay with my old setup, but it'll show you what I intend to do with the Greddy I'm now running.



Here's what it looks like now (random photo, not the greatest). My comp outlet pretty much heads straight down and out of the way of the inlet, so a crossover intake pipe as in the photo above will work.

Most people just buy an "intercooler kit" from ebay that comes with bunch of pipe, bunch of bends and clamps and make that work.
