That tube is cheap like 32 I think (better then trying to fab time is money), but I would hit junkyard first. The tube does have the IAT hole it's right after the MAF and on the underside. They do just pop in. I have a post 98 IAT hmmm where some pics... ah here we go. You can have that IAT in the pic if you want. Just not sure if it's good or bad.

I built my intake out of this and Auto Zone is a certified retailer of theirs. I built the Sleeper Z intake and I would have to say that out of the twelve differant intake set ups I have had on the Contique, That one is the best.... I'll get a picture of it soon.

I know it's not a good one, but it's the best I could get given the circumstances.

Hey, my battery tie down is both solid and original. The battery isn't going anywhere.
And let's not forget it's dual purpose, hold battery in place or if I ever need to strap anything down I'm preppared.
