I got the 95-99 eclipse intimidator intake to fit on my car, so that should fit if you can position it right.

niiiiice... if you can get it to fit as it I would try and do that... TYPICALLY with AEM, Injen, other maufacturers.. they try and match the length of the intake to it's piping diameter to allow for the best flow capacity... but... good deal.. definitely beats the 130$ im gonna spend on my AEM short ram..

Just remember that in the 1G's you need to keep the MAS air sensor attached otherwise your car will die at idle. Just letting you know.

It won't just die at idle if you toss the MAF, it'll get alot less power and usually they won't rev over 4 or 5,000 rpm either.
It's the same as unplugging it.

well... you can do a few things

1. keep the maf on there and take the top of the aircan off... just clip the filter right to the maf side of the can. Then you have an open element filter... just like most intake systems come with.

2. If you have too much money laying around ($600 last time I checked) you can get an HKS VPC, and get rid of the MAF totally, and (the VPC replaces it, but the vpc only uses a tube going to the intake near the filter I believe, instead of a big bulky sensor inline like stock). This is more of a joke than an option for a n/t car.

3. You can forget about the whole thing and buy a honda or soemthing with no MAF. :rolleyes: j/k.

Like a 2g N/T ;)

I guess also with some fancy (and perhaps un-neccesary work due to the restrictiveness of the MAF) you could replace the piping TO the MAS and find some way of using a reducer to hook up to the MAS, then something to clamp the filter to, on the other side of the MAS.

the vpc is designed to work with the turbo cars and doesn't have a chip for it for anything less than 550cc injector's which would totally swamp your nt. and its more like 800 without the gcc or an s-afc to really tune it with.

Those APC integra intake pipes at Pep Boys fit where the rubber piping is. The angle is the same and everything. It comes with one sillicone end that can fit the mas inlet on the pipe but u may either have to buy another sillicone end or cut the stock piping u have.
