I got both the large and small filter from Shuck's. They only had one size of the small filter. I don't think it really matters what size you use for the oil breather as long as you can get it to connect

They carried only one brand of the main cone filter, connects on 3, 3.5 and 4 inch connections.

Comes in the white, red, blue and a more expensive stainless something or other.

The small ones are called "breather filters" also come in multiple colors

Edit:
Oh and the best reason to do it? Piping, spray paint, ABS cement and filters total less then $50.

The large cone filter is a one size fits all. The filter fits all the pipe sizes 3, 3.5, and 4 inch.

You might need to do a little work on the oil breather tube to get the small filter to work.

I would stay away from that. It is going to be drawing in its air from much closer to the engine which will be hotter air.

And I also have heard nothing but bad things about the low budget ebay cai. One gentleman on another Dodge forum compared a DIY ABS pipe cai, a $200 name brand cai, and one of the $50 ebay cai.

The DIY and name brand were about the same. The ebay cai was running substantially warmer then the others.

If your going to build your own PVC intake then go with the 4" PVC... there is a noticeable HP difference between 3" systems and 4" systems. 4" systems always end up at the top.

Other then that I would recommend the SPECTRE intake seen in this picture...



For the money the price is hard to beat.

Team it up with a JET STREAM SCOOP and you would have the best all round intake for your money...

Default Homemade CAI

Here a home depot style intake I found. Not bad looking and cheap. This on a 5.7 or 4.7 I can't remember but it works for both. I am currently working on this to fit my 360. I also found how to make an air box out of a trash can, the little office rubbermaid ones.

Make sure its not something that after it gets warm it becomes pliable and implodes when you give it gas. Rubbermaid products are soft rubber... and thin... Just keep that thought in the back of your mind as you build it.
