I highly doubt any one has a cold air intake for it. Also watch out for those cheap ones like you bought the piping is made from alum which conducts heat. It's more of a hot air intake. A stock intake is fine.

On to your other one. For the fan shroud nab one from a junk yard would be best. Rock auto might have one listed.

Now with the ticking, to diag a tick you need to hear it kinda hard over Internet. Could be injector. Could messed up pulley bearing. Also 2.9 is the baby brother of the 4.0l OHV. They are known to have oiling problems in the top end causing the push rod to rocker to wear and cause a ticking
