Question MY 2000 air intake questions.

I want to fiddle w/ my intake without destroying the stock parts. I was thinking of using 3" silicon tubing from SAMCO (used in May 2000 SCC, "project impreza"). I want to run the tube from the air box right to the fender wall, to get that wonderful cold air. Sounds easy enough, am i forgeting something? Anyone ever done anything similar? And one other thing where the hell is the MAF sensor, not in the tubing right?

1 - There is no MAF sensor. MY00 uses a MAP sensor mounted on the top of the intake manifold.

2 - Yes, lots of people have run tubes to their fender and it works just fine. Personally, I leave the outlet on the filter box open just where it is and it works great. It does tend to suck hot air, but if you need the power, usually it is during an event where you can take off the underside of the hood scoop to get cool air in that way.

BTW, that 'Project Impreza' is a 99 so there will be a few differences. For instance, you don't need to take off the wheel and pull back the fenderwell to get a snorkus-thing out of the fender because in MY00 they don't have one there. It is just an open fender.

I feel I get slightly more power with my cold air tubing than driving with all the tubing off and the hood scoop open for cool air.

Leaving the scoop closed also keeps the engine cleaner from dust and dirt.

This weekend we are having an install-fest during which I hope to find areas of hot or cold air in the engine compartment...currently I am using a cone filter on the throttle body and the hood scoop open. I have driven through several rain storms with (to my knowledge) no ill effects but "I DO NOT RECCOMEND THIS YET".
I would like to create a filter (for bugs and small animals) in the hood scoop and a
reverse scoop under the throttle body to capture more of the air (with provisions to
allow water to go past)coming in and also a
larger bell on the throttle body to act as a velocity stack...any ideas???

what about the tube that branches off and points straight down, its about 14" long 1-1/2" tubing. I was assuming its a safeguard against hydrolock do you folfs know its real purpose???

Ravent,
have you checked out the 2000 or 2001 Ford Mustang Cobra, that uses a velocity stack. Maybe you can get inspired
