I don't believe the filter I've got is what comes with the intake.

On the end where your rubber red intake pipe meets the shiled, is there a bead in the metal pipe like there is on the side where the filer attaches?

I don't remember if there's a bead, but it's really not necessary...

That's a not a high-pressure connection

Yeah, on mine the pipe is also not round on that end, it's bent, almost into a squarish shape rather than round.

I took an old c900 pipe, the larger diameter aluminum one that goes from the IC to the throttle body. It fits that hose from the turbo, makes a 90* angle and ends with 2 3/4in piping. I had to cut a couple inches off the bottom to clear the hood as its too long. The pipe was just some 2 3/4in mandrel bent pipe. I am about halfway through making the fence.

Cost so far:
-Filter: 40
-Pipe: 30
-Fence: 20

wow, 90 thats not as cheap as I was thinking, but i have had the filter forever, so ill call it 50

Tough to tell. Is that rust around the welds?

Looks like heat discoloration.

Now I understand why you wanted pictures of everybody else's. I'm pretty sure mine doesn't have an "oval" end for the inlet pipe to connect to. I don't know whats up with that...
