S38 intake

Hey guys, I'm looking for a intake system for an s38 into an e30. I'm not sure if the original s38 filter housing will fit due to space so I was wondering if someone that has done the swap knows of a good one for this swap.

swaps I've seen delete the vacuum booster in favor of the E28 hydroboost system. then, the stock intake fits.

Ah I see, I had heard about that and seems like that's the best way to make it fit. Any ideas on what would be a good cold air intake or something??

LOL.. I am running the all original parts from the S38 in my E30. Now, for the intake system, I am running the castro airbox with a special afe intake filter that fits perfectly. I did remove the ABS housing to make it all fit.
