Here is my intake and the mod to it, that others don't like. I didn't like it either and did the best I could with what I had. More than most would do. I filled the inside to have a smoother transition at least. The 90* bend into the TB is about the same 90* bend that is in the stock air box, but is a much larger area. It works just fine for the little I paid. If anyone has one that they rec, I am all ears. No need to just jab with no suggestion. I see it pointless to have a VAF with a 3" outlet and then reduce it to 2.5" to increase it again to 3" before the TB. That inherently seems more restrictive to flow and the minute loss in torque in the upper RPM range is negligible. That and with having a stock exhaust still(budget), it sounds amazing, esp above 4500 RPM. You do what works for you...and I will do the same.
