2001 S10 Blazer 4.3 V6,finished my custom cold air intake and installed it the other day. stock except for the CAI now. 0-60 test. Bought intake pipes off ebay, sanded off chrome,primered,2K degree heat paint,& added a clear coat for gloss shine. I hand made the heat sheild with supplies i bought at Home Depot (sheet metal,fuel line,brackets & hardware).Last but not least replaced the cheap ebay filter with a K&N part# RU-3130.
---Update 3/15/12 just finished retesting my MPG with the intake on,it improved 1.983MPG MORE,thats great! my method of testing was fill tank up til it clicks & reset trip on spedo,drive car til about empty,when back @ gas station write down howmany miles i drove,refill tank til it clicks,write down exactly how many gallons it took to refill & divide that by ur miles u wrote down & u have ur MPG! test were at same gas station,same pump,1st test was 3months ago(stockairbox) & just finished the 2nd with C.A.I. about the same driving conditions and easy on the pedal both times.

How to Customize a Universal Cold Air Intake Filter System
Spectre Performance demonstrates in this video how to customize a universal cold air intake kit using parts you can find at your local neighborhood Pep Boys. Using universal parts you can simply assemble them in any fashion to create the look you want to make.
First we take off the existing air cleaner and install a single 4 inch plenum. Lay the plenum where your air filter was and put it in any direction you like. Screw on the plenum with the existing air filter nut or a custom nut of your choice. You will need couplers that will connect the different intake tubes together that can be turned to mold within your engine compartment. Simply slide on the coupler to the plenum and fit accordingly. Secure the clamp on the coupler to the ridge inside and then you can add additional tubing for the length you desire. Remember not to tighten the clamps too hard, because you may need to move your tubing around until you create a final fit. Rotate and adjust as needed. Attach your air filter to the end of the tubing. You can find inserts that go into the filter to accommodate a 3 or 3.5 inch tube. Once you have the final placement in place, be sure then to go back and tighten all of the clamps to hold the filter system securely in place.
The advantages to having a custom air intake filter system located in the front of your engine is that you can take advantage of the air stream and receive colder air going into the intake system instead of the hot air that your standard filter was providing. Customizing your cold air intake system is pretty simple once you know a few simple tricks. Not only will your new custom air intake system look great, but it will increase your engine's overall performance.

Mazda MazdaSpeed3 AEM Cold Air Intake Step-by-Step Install
We're pretty sure Mazda didn't plan for the turbocharged Mazdaspeed3 to make over 25hp at the wheels with just an AEM cold-air intake. They'll be pleasantly surprised when we install one with Greg Nakano and spin big numbers on the Mustang chassis Dyno. And so will you.
