Looks like a custom job. I'm building one of these right now! Lol. That one still utilizes the tbi bridge though... Not great from a flow prospective. How much of a hurry are you in for one? I could fab one up once I'm done my car build. ( the redneck metro build in general discussion)
I could also modify the tbi for higher flow. These cars pull a hell of alot harder with the bridge removed and a relieved tbi.

Sell it without the brace installed and let them deal with it.

You do have another option. Find another top for your air cleaner and a piece of pipe the same diameter or a little larger than your brace. Heat the metal pipe and press it into the new air cleaner, it should deform to the shape of the pipe. Use an assembled air cleaner with filter and mark it out like you did with the one you cut. This may not work but it's a cheap try. Make sure when you're done there is space for the engine to move.
