What exactly are you looking for?

Mine only cost about $25 to make. A 4" 90 degree drain pipe elbow from Home Depot and a 7" piece of 5.5" aluminum thick wall tubing to replace the stock baffle tube. I mounted the elbow at the bottom of the airbox.
Still running stock airfilters but the next one will be the new Amsoil EaA nano fiber filter (made by Donaldson).

Unfortunately I didn't take pics of the modification. But it's easy to do. I cut a opening at the lowest part of the airbox to fit the elbow into. Needs to be a good tight friction fit. The hole is pretty much centered in relationship to the depression. The elbow opening is pointed towards the front righthand corner of the truck.
I ordered a 12" piece of 5.5" aluminum tubing from here http://store.airflo.com/al5-5.html
and cut to fit for the baffle tube replacement.
With both of these and the silencer ring removed from the turbo it really does sing. :D

www.airflowonline.com I used these guys, I bought two 4" 90 degree elbows and 1 foot of 4" diameter aluminum tubing. The products sold at this website are the same parts used for big rigs. They use aluminum tubing and rubber elbows, you can also be creative too, there are almost endless possibilities.

How exactly does the AFE torque tube help?

Its supposed to be better air flow because it is a one piece smooth tube. Your stock tube has baffles in it(which can be removed) and then you have the accordian looking tube that connects to your air box. The theory is better air flow with no restrictions.

ya they are ok but dont look for any huge power or mpg changes and if you are not going to bump the horsepower a bunch and you are just looking for a cool sound then dont waste yer money on a aftermarket one just make one ( search it here on the site there is many ways of doing it

I made a BHAF by removing the stock air box, and adding some stuff. Bought a Napa filter from fleetfilter.com, and a pre-filter from Outerwears.com. Took a 4" PVC elbow and a piece of 4" pipe and BAM!
Filter minder gone. IAT sensor mounted on the elbow(visible in photograph)
Ran it for about 15,000 miles with no problems. And moved on to the next system. AEM Bruteforce with Dryflow filter. Yeah I know, the Filter minder gets sucked into the yellow all the time. It seems to be the position it's in on the tube that causes this.IMHO
