NEED help with air intake. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

I NEED an air intake for my 90 YJ. Right now I have absolutely nothing. The TBI is sitting there totally in the open, I have no air box, nothing. No filtration system of anykind.
I have searched and searched again for an aftermarket kit online for several days now to no avail. Everything I find either requires I have some of the stock components, or it is made for a TJ.
I have the 4 cylinder 2.5 engine with the throttle body injector. Would someone please be so kind as to provide me with a link to a company who makes these for my engine. Or does it exist?
I am having much trouble even finding just an entire replacement OEM air intake.
I have searched K & N's site but they dont seem to make a kit for my engine type. I have checked Poweraid's site with the same result.
I know many of you guys use exactly what Im looking for. Please help.
OK, Im done begging. LOL I just want to drive my YJ.

So, why not just either hit the scrap yard or go down to the Jeep dealer and get a new one?

Yeah, I thought It'd be that easy too. I went to every wrecking yard within a 100 mile radius (literally) and noone had one. I went to Jeep and they said they would have to do some searching and they'd call me. I looked online. I called K & N. I went to every auto parts store in my town and the surrounding ones. Came up with nothing everytime.
However, I finally found a wrecking yard in California yesterday that said they could hook me up. Now just waiting to see.
It would have been easier I think to find the proverbial needled in a haystack.

Hey Rage, hope that lead pans out! Just a little advice, find you a DIFFERENT Jeep dealer to do business with. That answer is unacceptable.

The yard in California seems to have come through for me. They said they had averything I needed down to the screws to hold everything in place. It should be arriving tomorrow then I will see.
I agree, the Jeep dealership here sucks. Not to mentioned totally overpriced!! I have paid outrageous prices for a few other things.
Anyway, thanks for the help.
