Default 98RS, would this work?

Ok, work with me here, I am kinda new at this...I have a 98RS
with this:

http://www.spomotorsports.com/Catego...=3&CustomerID=

Part# SPOISBL

If I were to take out the stock air box and replace that with the intake using the air flow meter adapter and that would put the filter right at the side wall for the coldest air? Right?

well first off that intake is for a N/A car, this forum is for aftermarket forced induction (turbos and superchargers), the Natural Aspiration forum is the place to go

but that intake will probably put the filter over by the fender pretty close to the stock location. If you want to get the coldest air, injen sells a cold air intake that puts the filter down inside the fender totally out of the engine bay, allowing it to get the coldest air. I had one of these on my car before I turbo'd it....the injen did have a high rating on the bling scale

I almost did that the other day. Itn't there some kind of foam piece you put between the filter and the piping to absorb the water?

I'm not too hot for it. It seems like it's too much piping for just an intake, & that's not including the inherent risk of hydrolock.

I just found the foam part I was talking about. A local aftermarket business sells it for $60. They guarantee that any water that is sucked up into the intake, the foam thingy combined with the power of the intake it's self, will "Push" the water out of the intake via the foam thingy. "Foam Thingy" is a technical term us Kustom guys use. I happen to have an H.K.S intake. ( Home Kustom S*** )
