I don't have a clue about Cobb, but all you'd need is a J-tube, filter, MAF adapter, and extra piping to reach the fender, and some connectors to make a CAI. Just make sure all the stock hoses are connected and it should work fine.

I used a JCS j-tubing, and parst from Larry's website. Works great. Pics HERE. Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Cobb has been saying they were developing the MAF intake for some time now. I don't know if they will ever release it. They say they have enough problems keeping up for the demand on 00-01 intakes... You can cross your fingers, I just made my own(for a 99, not 98...).

All you need is the cobb intake and a MAF adapter. I'd be willing to bet if you call and ask them that they would set up a package deal with everything you need.

Get in touch with larry ganz. He will cut you a package price for all you need. Intake, MAF adaptor, extra silicone connectors, screw clamps, and a 'j' bracket or 2...

I will probably end up going through larry ganz, everyone seems happy with that setup. I was just wondering if the Cobb was ever going to come out

Unhappy Cobb

I've been waiting for a CAI setup from Coob since I bought my car over a year ago. And even with the new website and extensive parts list, it still says "Coming Soon"!!

I hope we don't have to wait long for all of the other goodies for the 98 Legacies.

Peace,
Oqui

What we are saying, is that you might never see a Cobb intake designed for the MAF. You can make your own. Just need the parts I mentioned above. I put mine on in September and have had no problems. I basically have what Cobb will release if they ever do...

Reminds me, I need to clean my filter.

Just like Danzborin and I said. There is no need to wait. Get the Cobb CAI and a MAF adapter. THey prolly won;t come out with the 98 intake cause you can make it yourself.

Default soon...

Here is an email I got from Cobb:

Our intake for the MAF (pre 2000) vehicles has been designed and is undergoing long-term reliability testing. Our testing program should be complete soon, and we will make them available as soon as possible. I do not have a projected date, but we hope to have it ready within a matter of weeks. The Power Packages for those vehicles will be completed then as
well.


Let me know if you have any other questions, or feel free to search and/or post on our Forum.

Thanks,

I got this yesterday, so maybe the end really is in sight.

I got that exact same answer from Trey about a year ago. Said they were testing and trying to find cheap source of piping for the kit. I'm with Danz, DIY baby!

The trick is in the MY98 you have a 4th vacuum nipple for the idle speed control valve, and you need to use one of the three nipples on the MY2000 Cobb for that.

That means you need to slip something over the nipple like a 10mm silicone hose to make it fatter, slide a small hose clamp over the 1" fat vacuum line, slide it onto the nipple, and clamp it down.

Then for the other three vacuum lines (two valve covers and one crank case breather) you will have to "T" two together to be able to get three vacuum lines onto the remaining two nipples.

All you need is the Cobb intake, 3" maf adapter, and two extra 3x3" silicone connectors and 4 more large hose clamps - we can order it all for you but the small hose clamp you'd get at the parts store.
