early 99 diy intake question..

so i looked up the diy intake, ordered my filter, and 4 inch pipe, then after i tried to install it, found that my intake hose wouldn't make the bend.. it seems to be too short.. it looks like the writeup shows a 22.5* bend added to the hose to fit the filter in there.. where do i find that fitting?

ben.. ya have a pic of what ya got ??? i went to lowes tonight and studied fittings for about an hour.. and actually seriously thought about just using a heavy aluminum dryer vent pipe.. i'm just paranoid about leaks. and the dryer vent wouldn't quite fit over my 4 inch pipe..
and what's this diy exhaust brake??

I'll have to get out and take a picture of it tomorrow.
My DIY brake is the backpressure valve in the turbo that gets actuated for quick warm-ups in the winter. I've made it work on a switch so I can activate it anytime manually. I have a manual trans so I didn't have to modify the torque converter. You can do a search to see how it's done.

Jarrod's truck doesn't have the early 99 intake tube on it any more. It has the 99.5 up one that has the bend on it. I went and got the newer one from ford for my early 99 too. It just seems to fit better with it and it wasn't expensive ( the piece between airbox and engine bracket).

Jarrod that engine bay is clean! Wish mine looked like that...its hard to keep anything clean though with crushed limestone roads...that dust gets everywhere and sticks to everything!

I did mine a little different than most... I used 4" ABS pipe and a 4" Fernco coupler and a 4" ABS Sweep Elbow (45 degree I think?).
