that's got the air filter on top of the throttle body right? plumb the inlet to the fender like it was from the factory... you have cold air... get a K&N but I doubt you will gain 2 or 3 mpg with that pig.

This is what I did, you should have blank slugs on each side of your radiator core support that you can knock out. All parts can be had at the dealer for under $100 tell them to pull up a diagram for the LB9 air intake and you will see what you need.
