I'm getting a Cobb Tuning Intake and am gonna adapt it to fit on my MAF based GT. I've heard of a few people doing this with favorable results. I'll let you know how it turns out when I get it.

i bought a JC Sports J-tube from another MY98 owner who was parting his car out. i then contacted Larry Ganz and asked him what parts i'd need. i bought the parts from him, and installed the intake in 1 day... i have pics HERE, granted they are not in chronological order as ImageStation likes to put them in alphabetical order.

The parts i ordered from Larry are as follows:
(1) a PRM filter www.SubaruPlanet.com/product2.htm#prmfilter for $139.95 + $10.95 S&H to have drop shipped to you from my supplier (also in the note specify silicone color)
(2) order the kartboy MAF adapter
www.SubaruPlanet.com/product2.htm#mafadapter which ships from me $35.95 + $6.95 S&H
(3) order a stage II upgrade for the MY00 intake
www.SubaruPlanet.com/products.htm#stageII for $49.95 shipped - having seen you order a PRM filter and MAF adapter I will know to substitute a 45 degree bend instead of the 90, plus add a 3x3 connector to cover the bend where it enters the fender and include an extra piece of 14" long hose (to split down one side and pinch onto the edges of the hole in the inner fender to keep it tight and not rattle.)

that's what he sent me... so it'll probably work for you as well...

it sounds great... gains aren't huge... but that's to be expected... but the sound at WOT is just awesome... if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Default ACC Intake

I have the intake from Accurit Performances. Its the J-Tube style intake and it looks good, sounds good, and performs well too. No low end loss and the car pulls noticably better.

Midnx03 - that is right - I just did another JCS conversion last weekend on a 2000 RS, works very well - much better low end and top end power - he said the car uses to take a long to hit 100mph (6,000 feet) even with his Borla headers/catback, but not it is effortless.

The MAF adapter is not needed on a 2000+ and we didn't have to cut any pipe (I gave him a deal since it was the first 2000+ JCS PRM conversion we did and was testing it on his car)

I can get the JCS intake pipes for 99 and 2000 from the pipe manufacturer if there is enough interest. He still has about 10 of these left over I hear.

Larry, can you do the conversion with a Minnam pipe? I have a used one I want to put on my MY99. I already have a Kartboy MAF adapter, so all I need is the PRM. I think the Minnam tube looks a bit longer than the JCS one though, so I might have to cut it down. Have you done one of these?

Haven't tried a Minnam, but you should be able to make it work with a PRM filter and a 45 degree 3" pipe, even if you need to cut the minnam down some.

The cost is $139.95 + $12.95 S&H for the PRM and $49.95 shipped for the bend.

I don't have the "J" tubes - I might be able to get some old, unpowdercoated JC Sports tubes for Phase II motors, but not phase I for your 1998, and the phase II ones may all be gone by now.

Larry,
I will order those parts from you. I need to use PayPal though. PM me whatever info I need to do so. I will expect the hoses and clamps from the entrance to the filter to the entrance to the bend will be included for that kind of price.

Jeffsnyder,
You and I must have one of the unique intakes ever made. I'm pretty sure Rallispec didn't make more than a handful for the '98.

actually it was for a my99 all i had to do was tap a hole in it for an idle postion sensor that was the only thing different.... i know a few ppl that did it that way.

~JEff

PS Ralli-spec only made a handful of intakes for the other years too

Fred - Assuming you have a 3" MAF adapter already (like weapon-R) - Just paypal the money ($202.85 total doing math in my head), and the item description would be:

"PRM Racing filter (already comes with 2 clamps and one INSERTCOLOR silicone connector), plus 45 degree bend, plus 3x3" INSERTCOLOR silicone connector, plus one matching 14" long silicone hose to line the hole in the fender, plus one extra hose clamp."

If you need a 3" MAF adapter they are $35.95 + $6.95 S&H, so add that to the order if needed. I believe they are a 3" adapter so you are fine.

Actually, rallispec is going to make more intake's for 98, I have one on order, but they said I'm going to have to wait a couple monthes as they are busy right now doing some kind of conversions (I didn't ask).

ok...i emailed rallispec asking for j tubes and they said:

"We are no longer making the intakes on a regular basis but I have a few tubes lying around. They do not have any fittings for either the idle speed control motor or the crankcase ventilation. If this is not a problem then please give me a call. Pipes are black anodized 3" aluminum. Price is $90 and comes with a silicone transition to attach to the throttle body."

how would i make this work for a 98?
thanks

will

all u would need to get is a k & N cone filter, a oil catch can, some rubber tubeing for the oil catch can (i don't think there is enough lenght) and and elbow and a strait piece of metal tubeing for the idle postion sensor.

If u have any other questions email me or catch me on aim.

I have the Rallispec '98 intake on my car. If you want, I can send you some pictures of it to show you what the intake and connections should look like.

Let me know, Mark
