Smile early 99 intakes

i have an early 99 and i have the keystone good hood ram air hood, i am getting the intake from airraid that seals to the hood in order to make it a closed ram air system , they say that the intake is only for late 99 trucks m My question is what do i need in order to run this intake on my early 99 truck?

The hood is not going to make tons of air go to the box. I had a ram air hood on my grand prix gtp(supercharged) and everyone said that the only way a decent amount of ir would flow through the hood to the air box would be if you were running a steady 100+ mph.
Personally i would do the DIY intake. Just did one on mine. $50 for a filter(6637-which you can get at napa or i got mine at carquest) and all you need is a 5" section of 4" pipe(stainless or i actually used a piece of high temp plastic that my buddy had made his intake from) and the filter and i additional hose clamp. Works great and is cheap. Alot better than buying some $400 intake(in my opinion) I also bought a custom made filter cover made by Pete(awesome cover)

if it is a closed system the hood should force the air down the internal ductwork in the hood and into the filter correct? i was also thinking about an AFE stage 2 but then it would not be a closed system

The air will get there but its not gonna to be a mass force of air to make any kind of difference. Personally id do the DIY intake and use the rest of the money elsewhere(chip,guages). I wanted a nice intake but the DIY works great and its $100 if you get the custom filter cover. Just my .02

I thought this was already answered in another thread? All you need is the rubber hose that connects the turbo to the CCV coupler from a late model truck.
