cxracing.com I think has pretty good prices. Can buy individually whatever you desire. The also carry good deals on intercoolers and the like.

Also, eBay. They have "kits" in various sizes that include pipes, bends, clamps, couplers. But that may be too many pieces for you.

Try looking for vacuum cleaner parts. Commercial systems use these and I know some of the junk yard turbo guys have used them. Ebay also has some real cheap, but I suspect they are not real great. Most dont have a lip, but if you had a tig you could add a lip and make them work.
