I would like to know this also? I'm thinking the easier it is to get the air in the better the milage. I am also looking into a bigger exhaust,anyone know where to get one?

i had a 95gxe. i didn`t buy one but made one for mine and the intake air sensor is right next to the box it does come with too much wire so becare full but the intake i have seen out there everything you need is on it or it tell you what to do. as far as bigger exhaust, i just had a custom one done mine sounded better that way. it came out cheaper to. and i didn`t have the ricer sound.

So Hdt can you show me some pix of your intake and exhaust? I want to get some ideas on opening things up for better mpg's......Did you just go to a muffler shop and ask them to build a custom exhaust? I can do thi myself if theres not a lot of bends that is??

I didnt use any of the brackets. However you can use them to hold up the intake cause it kinda just sits on the inner fender.

There's the MAF and the temperature sensor...You absolutely need the MAF for your car to run, so you'll need some sort of adaptor to go from the square end of the MAF to your filter/intake tube. They sell plastic ones at autozone that do fit, you just need to drill new holes. With the temperature sensor, if you buy an intake specifically for that car, it should have something for that to go in...if not, here's what I did: I drilled/cut a hole in the tube, fit the temp sensor in, put permetex gasket maker around the hole, and screwed it in place. That's pretty easy.

As for the exhaust...you pretty much have to go to a place that makes custom exhaust... It's a lot of money.
