Question MY 98 Intake design

I have come up with a design for a MY98 intake and I'm looking for feedback. I do not wish to make these for others, just myself so please don't ask I want to know if its possible and what type of problems I might run into. I've done searches for an intake and have not been happy with what I have found. If you guys and gals think it is possile I will do it and let others know if there are any problems.

The design:
Take a MY00 PDM intake and modify it to accept the MAF/MAS sensor. Basically just cut out a section and put the sensor back into the stock position using a MAF/MAS intake bracket (that some sell), and a couple of reducers w/silicon seals. The advanatges would be: use of the stock torque box, use of stock sensor, and having the intake feed in from the fender wall. This should give a little better performance than stock because it would eliminate the filter box and that restrictive flexible tubing. The downside: because of the reduction to the sensor would not be as effective as a true CAI intake. But it would be cheap to do and look a lot nicer than stock.

Thanks in advance!

why dont you just replace the filter in the stock box with an AmSoil.
then remove the snorkel.
then remove the fog light cover.
then use a wire mesh to keep out leaves.

Or.
you can do this


An then remove the fog light copletely and fab some ducting so it feeds to the intake.


I run a K&N but Amisols arejust as good.

Gives you nice little boost in throttle response and is dirt cheap.

Thumbs up Good Ideas

I haven't given much thought as to increasing air intake on bumper but those are both good ideas. I assume you guys have not had any problems with that set-up. But, I still want to replace the stock intake, mostly for looks and cleaning up the engine bay. I not sure it would increase performance much, unless anyone knows if a cone type filter is better than the stock filter box.

BTW I already have a K&N filter and have removed the silencer, which has definitely helped, just looking to do a little more and cheaply.

Now, the way you make it sound, you would remove the first air filter and keep the filter in the air plenum. Is it safe to remove the filter in front of the MAF? You have the tougher 98 MAF, but I don't know if it is going to work right once you get some dust on it. Just a thought I had.

H8er - No, that's far from safe! In '98s there isn't even a filter in the 'plenum,' as far as I know. I have a RalliSpec intake that does not go into the fender so the cone is attached to the front side of the MAF. I did take out the fog lights but that's because they stopped working and they are worthless POS anyway. So cold air does come in the hole where the intake used to be, but it's not really directed there.

so let's say you had fogs in your 98 and wanted to leave them in... and you get a CAI or any intake for that matter. What else can be opened up to get more outside air into the engine bay?

H8er I would definitely have a filter before the MAF. I was hoping to attach it to the end of the intake, inside the fender wall, thus getting colder air away from the hot engine. I have not looked at how much space there is to do this, but I think it can be done. The problem would be moisture and puddles so some type of barrier would have to be created and maybe a small water trap. Or maybe I could run some type off panel filter that would be up against the end of the intake. The only thing that would affect the MAF is the filter being about a foot further away from it than the stock location. I don't think that wil cause any problems but advice is always appreciated. My only goals are to get some type of CAI and to have it look clean, and include the MAF.
