Yikes, smart questions come to mind after posting it seems....
Are you wanting a model electronically mocked up to see if what you have is good in your application? If so, give me a little time- I got my hands full with real life(tm) issues but can get something posted definitely by this time tomorrow.

At this point, whichever is most cost-effective for you and/or what your patience will allows. The prefab one you pointed out is not a bad match at all, all you have to do is wait for it to ship. Your buddy that builds may be able to offer far better handiwork if he can indeed model and then build a box totally tuned for the speaker, your vehicle and musical tastes. And then you merely have to wait for him to do it for you.
Personally, I totally enjoy building my own and it is worth the blood, sweat and gears. :D That call is entirely up to you. Feel it out with your buddy if he has some passing knowledge of WinISD, etc...
Metaljoey:
If you're still on the line with us, there is nothing wrong with the setup you have, even with a common shared port with the dimensions you listed. I modeled it out to 1000 watts, drivers wired to 2 ohms. Looks good - a very FLAT response curve and the tuning at 34Hz is spot on in your knee-bend. What can I say - DO IT. DO IT PROUDLY. :D

difference between prefabs and custom enclosures.
prefabs are constructed with the cheapest quality glues and staples. The enclosures never last. Seams blow and carpet peels.
A properly constructed enclosure will last a lifetime.

tuning is dependent on the vehicle...every vehicle peaks at a different frequency.
