you shouldn't use K&N...you will dust your turbo eventually

the napa filter (6637 filter) is GREAT...heads and shoulders above the stock air box

Most folks said they found them at napa for around $58 but I guess it depends on the store...my napa had them for $35
Fleetfilters.com has them for a hair cheaper but after s&h its about the same price...but I havent checked fleetfilter in a while.

yes, its 4in pipe (male on both ends) w/a 45* bend in the middle I just called up a muffler shop and asked then to bend me up some trash pipe they had sitting around the shop. I think mine had 4in on either side of the bend and it was almost too long.
Also yes on the hose clamp

Napa also has pipe like that already bent up for sale but a muff shop is a lot cheaper
