    I have a custom (homemade) shortram on my 91 dx. I had found the plans on the teamdelsol website,but it's no longer in my faverotes list :( but I used 2.5inch exhast tubing, one staight length approx. 15inch and one 180 mandrell bent length with 12inch legs. used the 180 peice to create the bends and a section of the 15inch peice for the added length. painted with ceramic paint to held keep air temp. cooler. used 2.5inch rubber waterline/sewer connecters with clamps from Lowe's(2.50$ apeice) and added a brace welded at the aircleaner end that bolts into the exesting aircleaner box bolthole(front side of shock tower). also used the existing breather tube you can use a gromet or cut and weld in place.

    It's a K&N cone filter 6inch length, 5.5inch base, with 4inch cap. sorry don't remember the stock number. :blink: by the way leave 1/2 inch of unpainted tube at each end or it and the aircleaner will vibrate loose (off!!) unless you know how to add a rolled lip to each end. I also painted the inside of tube with ceramic paint after Icleaned up the welds with a mini-grinder.
