Picked one up a couple days back.
-Will it fit directly onto an ATX throttle body?
-Are the DOHC and SOHC versions different?
-Where do you get the steel piping at?

You don't need the steel piping, but you should be able to find some at a local hardware store.

I want it to be just like the one in the picts but about 4-5 inches shorter. I have a DOHC with two fans. I am just curious where I can pick up 2 1/4 '' piping? Home Depot/Ace Hardware is what I am guessing but not sure...

see if your local muffler shop has any scraps lyin around they will give out or sell for cheap ... or usually any hardware store might have the piping.

I put one together last weekend. Spent a little bit more on it but it was fun doing my first mod. Cost about $50.00 total.

spent a little more? That's about what mine cost.. in fact, I think mine was more like $60 for the 3.0 CAI :(

All the pipe I had to buy and cut and clamps and shit :(

Was your price including the filter?
