I just found (half of) a Banks Turbo kit at a junkyard for under $100!

I found a Banks turbo on a junkyard 6.2. There is a little bit of shaft play, nothing too bad. The problem is that someone has swiped all of the intake ducting. Banks air filter housing, gone. Air filter to turbo tube, gone. Turbo to intake tube, gone.

Is there any way to (cheaply) build a home-made duct system so that I can use this? Another potential problem is that I have a lot of extra crap on the passenger fender well for my SVO system, so I was thinking of using some sort of K&N-type-cold-air-intake-style air filter tucked wherever I can fit it.

Yeah, you could set it up with the right tools and supplies... Might be able to find that stuff separately though...

You'd better grab that turbo/manifold/etc though! Especially since I think red suburban is in the area...

Not sure what exactly your missing but to fab up piping, all you need is mandrel bent and straight pieces of exhaust pipe, or buy alumium elbows if you want, use turbo silicone connectors, t-bolt clamps etc. We are constantly fabbing up piping etc for turbo's, IC's on my Turbo Mopar site.
