O2 sensor eh?

Looks to me that, the particular intake is pictured on a MY98. How can I tell? Well, the coil pack is different than the MY99+'s. Plus the colour of the vehicle is Rally Blue Pearl. In any case, the sensor is a MAS sensor, not an O2 sensor. An O2 sensor is for the exhaust and it is used by the ECU to adjust the air-fuel ratio within the cumbustion of the engine.

Its possible the owner has relocated a few components as was did with the MAF. However that engine might not be a MY98. The coilpack and plug wire connectors are not typical of a DOHC engine, (looks more like a '99 to me). The coilpack is offset; '98's are directly behind the alternator. Also the EGR vacuum diaphram actuator that sits on #4 intake runner is missing. RBP 2.5RS was available for MY98 & 99 only.


So which one of the detroit iron's was that dual filter setup designed for?

Hmm, I could be wrong. In any case, the coil pack looks a little different than the coil pack on mine and the MY99's IMO.

As for the K&N intake, it looks like it might be for a Corvette, or an f-body LS1 engine with ram air.

Seems like a bit of overkill to me. Could our 2.5L motor flow enough air to warrant the use of those two huge filters? I doubt that it would have a negative effect (maybe, maybe not) but it seems to be a bit more than needed.

Oh yeah...that thing is way old. Seen it a couple times in the past.

That car is a My99. You know how I know? The wires going to the drivers side turn 90 degrees down comming off the coil pack on a MY98. Also there is no EGR valve on the back-drivers side of the intake manifold as there is on a MY98. Class dismissed -Scu.

Well....while it looks really good..........I agree that its going to suck HOT air and be detremental to performance. The idea is supposed to be more cold air!

The filters/intake will heat soak at idle but at speed the scoop will supply fresh (cool) air to them. The car is a MY99 with some bits and pieces removed. The red plug wires are Magnecors. As for the performance of the intake it is probably pretty good BUT the airflow into the hood scoop is rather turbulent, look at this design vs some of the other dual filer design I've seen the tubing should have enough bends to disrupt the turbulence. Eh, looks good regardless.

Even with the hood scoop open I doubt it will have too much of a
cold air induction effect. Those fiters are pretty far apart from each other...and judging by the picture they would be on the extreme edges of the hood scoop opening.

It's creative...and would probably be great on a car with some serious internal N/A breathing mods (a car that wants a TON of air) but on an otherwise stock car (say full exhaust and even cams) it's overkill...I feel.
