Decided it was time to install my cone air filter I've had sitting on my shelf since I wrecked my Toyota and took it from it. Its a 3" Diameter K&N filter. I discovered that an older Toyota Celica / Previa adapter fits PERFECT. Bolt holes line up, and the square opening in the adapter is the same dimensions as the flapper style MAF's opening. If you're have a flapper style MAF, get an adpater for an older Celica/Previa.

Then it was time to wedge that cone filter in. I ended flipping the MAF upside down, and wedging the filter between the fender and the MAF. It fits snuggly.

I don't think I have much more power, but the throttle response is better. Plus, it sounds great.

Ya know what you can do to get rid of that MAF? Megasquirt:headbang:. PM me, I make the units...but I'm still working on an almost plug n play for subarus.

Oh yeah, great work too!! I Have one for my Turbo wagon, it's a hotwire though.

build a nice box around the back side of it so to keep the excess heatfrom the engine off of it... so as to get that nice colder air from the front. Looks great though!

thanks for the parts info. I was thinking of having one made with a 90 degree bend so that the filter wouldn't rub the fender and it would be easier to build a heat shield for it. You possibly make the cone filter fit inside the factory airbox and make the existing hole through the wheel well bigger. It would look bone stock and get lots of cold air. It wouldn't be as noisy as with no airbox.

Nissan something adapter fits the hotwire. The hotwire has a round opening, and the flapper has a square opening.

So nobody is going for a full fenderwell intake?:confused: The coldest air you will get is from outside the engine bay. I just cut a hole into my fender, used a Honda Accord short ram intake(cut into sections of course), and went to work. Mine works great. :banana: And the car sits high enough that ingesting water isn't even a worry, well unless I decide to drive through a 2-3 foot deep puddle.

i made my own cold air intake after deciding it wasnt good for the car to be sucking in all that hot air from the engine bay.

My nissan adapter came with a square plastic piece that allows it to mate to the flapper style as well.
