Im going to say no, not yet.

Get a NA intake for 93-07 it should work with in reason, and a MAF tube for the sensor with a generic filter. It may need to be modded a little in terms of pipe routing. Or you can always just buy some 2.75 -3" aluminum bends and coupler it all the way to the fender with a generic filter and the MAF tube.

Otherwise is a custom Fab job.....cha-ching!

In all reality you will see little to no gains

I didn't even realize either, but this should be in the NA or Nubies Forum, not Normally Aspirated with bolt-on Forced Induction Powertrain

Don't change you intake. You are likely to lose power or hurt the car. The stock intake is already cold air with the big scoop leading to the front grill.

no gains to be had the stock intake flows very well and has the nice scoop off the grill area. You could open up the grill a little by removing some of the plastic. Add a drop in perrin filter and remove the pzev screen that would give you the best flow but most likely no gain in measurable horse power

i was also sticking w/ 12 inch rims and go 215/45 tires...or 225/40. think that would be wise? i hate plus sizing the rims to 18s...they cost alot. i was hoping to go wider on 17 inch rims to acomodate the said tires sizes.

Yep. What this guy said. Those engineers are pretty smart guys when it comes to flow/turbulence calcs.

Unless you want to spend $$$$$ on some coil overs, the best bang for your buck is some beefy swaybars and endlinks. You will like and relatively cheap. Whiteline and others make some adjustables so you can get it feeling like you want in the twisties. Even just a stouter rear bar will do wonders for bodyroll and understeer and a rear bar is easy to install. The front takes a bit more work.

You need to do some research. You have been on this forum for less than two weeks and are asking questions in the wrong part of NASIOC that have already been answered many times. Pics will help you with you decision of what size tires to go with.

"Felt a little HP gain" Man, you must have ultra-sensitive buttocks brotha. I'm talking about laboratory-grade measurements, cause that drop-in k&n filter equates to virtually no gain in torque or HP for a horrible risk of running one of the world's marketing success stories. Please read up on how k&n filters actually impact our cars.

the factory system is cold air your not going to see gains on the intake side of things on this motor. Exhaust side there are some possibilities with removing the neck downs and such.

wow... or just burn your money either way this isn't a sports car nor is it a "sporty" car. you are wasting time. just get a custom exhaust, better money spent. sway bars, suspension is also a good buy to make it feel sportier. also, if you have the factory 17 inch rims, you could run a 225/45 tire without changing the rim. but that will make your car much much slower.

What exactly is your definition of a "sporty" car?

OP, just look at what Rally Sport Direct has done with theirs. It's all spelled out for you.

well, as of now, am working on exhaust system and suspension. i dont really need serious HP. if i really wanted to to, i would swap to a turbo engine and and a different drive train. but that's later on down the road. my warranty is not expired yet. hehe
