Go airdoc and get a K&N filter much cheaper and sensible, allows you to keep yout stock air box which means less cleaning to do filter wise

If you want a cheap K&N cold air intake, Ebay is the way to go. I bought one from a guy whose name is Fast lane USA store, He was asking $321.04 or best offer with free shipping! I offered $240 and he accepted. Couldn't pass it up. Exact fit and placement in factory sealed box and only took half an hour to install.

So your the one, I was one of the bidders on that intake, I was checking my email and missed my chance to up my bid last min. But I ended up buying another Volant intake and Airaid TB spacer for $125 shipped. Let me know how the install goes, mine doesnt come with any directions.

Haha sorry man, it sounds like you got a smoking deal tho. I think the guy I got mi e from was so mad it sold for so cheap he just tossed everything onthe box loose and I lost half of the screws during shipping. But I called volant and they said they would replace everything I lost for free! That's great customer service.
Anyway about the intall, go to this link and click on the install tab by the features, it's a PDF of the exact installation instructions that come with the kit.
Let me know when you install it how it works for ya, since have to wait for some parts.

good look man, I appreciate the help. Did you keep the resonator or whatever it is called the big backwards "C" shaped box? I have seen some kits keep it and some without it. Hopefully mine is without. Otherwise, I want to remove mine and fab some sort of adapter to continue the intake tube. How did your setup end up working out?
