    A place like Tim's Custom Exhaust in Coon Rapids could probably make something for you. They have all sizes of pipes and mandrel bending ability.

    is it usually really expensive? i see IC kits go for like 900 bucks and then you can go and get the cooler itself for like 100.. doesnt seem like aluminum pipe should be that wild

    If you want to piece it together yourself and order online, http://www.siliconeintakes.com/ has decent prices.

    I buy the aluminum kits from cxracing.com and have my buddy cut and weld the pipes to size. The kits contain hoses and clamps so it has just about everything you need.

    Key is to buy unpainted so it can be welded.

    Unpolished is nice too, you'll see every scratch in the polished stuff.

    I get my mandrel bends from Columbia River http://www.mandrel-bends.com/catalog/

    Buy cheap and get what you pay for, its only a few bucks more from them^
