If youre interested, i'm about to start working with a guy on some ranger intakes. He is in pasadena and makes the tubes, then uses whatever filter i'd want. We should have it going in the next few weeks, and i can try and get you one to help out with some testing.

Well whenever you get the kits together or need a 1999 XLT 3.0 V6 FFV for a tester let me know. I'm in the works for a new intake and I'd be interested in an intake. Keep us posted on the progress, maybe a thread dedicated to the development of the intakes?

I made an intake out of PVC before! It was for some ricer buddy of mine, total cost was like $50. It worked really well too, didn't look half bad either...
