the market is not very big for these on the 2.3. maybe with some extensive searching u may find someone that makes one.but there is a few forums that have some info (like the one below that have a little info on building them yourself.

That looks really good. Now you need to dish the stock air box for a conical filter. I plan to do this to mine in the next few weeks

And it only cost $43 for the filter and MAF adapter, $10 for the pipe, and $12 for the rubber couplers. So it cost $65, not bad right?

Not bad at all, how did you secure the MAF and filter to the car?

Well I got most of my info off of this link, and I went to my local hardware and bought 2inch diameter rubber couplers( the 2inch are a perfect fit on everything), went advance auto part for the MAF sensor adapter and conical filter and local exhaust shop did the pipe for me

It only cost me about $70 altogether and seeing as how I couldn't find any for the 2.3 I'd say it was pretty cost effective
