You need to do some more research, and check the available limit on the old Visa card.

I think I already gave you the link to www.tpis.com makers of the miniram intake manifold. I guess you are talking about something different here.

You can make your own ram air if you have the tools, time, and creativity. I did it to my 85 years ago. Nothing but removing the front license plate cover, using a long drill bit, marking the hole design, and drilling through the bumper cover, reinforcement, and actually bumper behind it until you pop out on the air cleaner side. Keep smoothing, trimming, and cutting until it is perfect. You can get a regular house dryer duct with the wall inserts to pop on each end of it for a clean look.

Take you rubber front license plate housing, mark it off, and take a dremel to it with a carefull and skilled hand to cut air slits in it about 1/2" wide and across the front.

This will ram air right into the air box for about $10 and a Saturday afternoon. Or, you can do as I did, and leave the license plate rubber cover untouched, and only remove it at the track when you are ready to drag.

You will find the miniram in the TPIS catalog. Don't think you can make one from scratch, although there is a guy converting a stock LT-1 manifold to a regular SBC, but I don't see the use when you can just slap on the miniram and rock!
