I just picked up an 83mm Pro M meter and matching injectors for my normally aspirated stroker. Meter is the kind that the filter attaches directly to it with three nuts. question is, where to find the plumbing to go from the t-body to the meter, stock stuff isn't large enough? Do I have to go with the "power pipe" setup or are there other alternatives? Also, What is an effective cleaner for the filter on these meters?

Pro-M offers air cleaners for their meters; they aren't bad. I use one.

Most everyone likes K&N. The fact that they're an oiled unit makes me nervous; if you use too much oil you'll gunk up the hot wire sensor in the meter and throw off the metering. If you don't use enough, you won't keep the "big chunks" out of the engine. The real question is, how much is too much oil and how much is not enough? Since I don't know how to answer that accurately, I stick with the conventional elements on mass air cars.

There are numerous places that you can buy rubber hoses of all sizes, shapes, and configurations to fit up your own intake system. Do a google search on "intake hose fittings" or similar and you'll find lots of possibilities. For example, here's a catalog with over 200 different intake fittings: http://www.buckhornrubber.com/pdf/air_intake_hoses.pdf

On edit, here's another place where you can place your orders on-line: http://tinyurl.com/2jftb
