Post Just installed Used WeaponR intake on MY99....

and well .. it just seems like the whole thing ins't nearly as solid as all the stock piping and the MAF will get far more jostled around .. by and by i am planning to take it off most likely b/c i like the idea of a K&N in the first air box and a gasket in the second with some form of aftermarket piping between the two boxes rather than a J-tube style intake just for the sake of my MAF and wallet .. does anyone else feel this way about intakes on the MY99 .. it's just to much of a risk but gosh do i love the sound

I've got a '99 too and that's the EXACT same set up I've been hoping for. Just a smooth pipe between the MAF and the second air box. I've emailed Larry Ganz about this several times, but nothing's come of it. I figured I just needed to do some measuring, order a small mandrel bent pipe and some silicone connectors and hose clamps and do it myself. Its a close enough distance that a curved piece of silicone tubing alone might do the job. hmmmm.

i'm planning on just cutting the weaponR tube this weekend .. hopefully it'll work out .. i wish cobb tuning would hurry with their intake and i wish i had $250 to get it .. but DIY is just so fun

I had to replace my MAF sensor and all I had was a K&N in the first and a gasket in the second... dealer says too much air caused the sensor to burn out... i think you need that apex'i think to fix that problem... if anyone knows for sure please tell me.

I did that about 20K ago on my car with no problems so far. The MAF is very solid in there though. There is info there on where to get some mandrel bent pipe.

Doesn't the iSR intake give you a K&N filter with a gasket in the 2nd box while replacing the stock tubing between the MAF and the 2nd air box???

yes all that is true accpet it gives you a K&N cones filter in place of the first box .. i was talking about putting a K&N panel filter in the first box b/c i feel that keeping the boxes makes the MAF much more steady .. with a cone style filter you need some way to support the MAF and i just don't feel comfortable with any of the ways i've seen
