Or This since you have a MAF The injen intake requires you to take the sensor out of the housing a place it in the intake tract. with the sensitivity of the MAF's even though you have a 98 which is supposedly sturdier than the MY99 hot film i would be cautious

Actually, it doesn't require you to do that at all. The WRX Injen intakes do, but the '98 RS intake has silicone connectors that go on either side of the MAS. I have sitting in my garage waiting to be installed and dyno tested at some point in the relatively near future.

if they actually made them for a '98-99 RS that advice might have been helpful.

I am working on a version of my Stealthbox for the GC8 models with MAF. I have a good pattern but need a car with the factory box on it to make final fit and modifications to it.http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...light=homemade

Or you could make your own.....



$15 for tubing, $40 for K&N Panel filter. $55 total after shipping and handling. If that's not your cup of tea, feel free to pay $130+ for a piece of mandrel bent aluminum tubing. My tubing is PVC, more flexible and keeps the engine heat out better.

Nice setup STEALTHBMBR!, I was thinking of doing something like that.

How stiff is that tubing that you used? If you can sqeeze it shut with your hand, I would think that it could get sucked shut at WOT. But I like the clear tubing though.

Or, we could keep this discussion limited to intakes that are designed for those of us running MAF sensors, which generally don't seem to like "more flexible" tubing.

The wall thickness is about 1/8", pretty hard to squeeze it even with your hand. I had to use a heat gun to bend it like that.
