well i did that cuz it was temporay. im gettin CAI sometime in October and i did that cus i wanted a better air flow than the box.LIUSPEED, did you simply put it inside the filter and run the wire under the filter collar? I hope your filter isn't very tight then, you're asking for trouble smashing the wires like that. I'd seriously consider changing that. Maybe cut a slot in the collar so that you can slide the wire to a hole on the other side of the clamp, then slide your clamp back on and viola, no more smashed wires. You could use some sensor safe RTV silicone to seal the opening if the wires aren't tight in the hole. Sometimes you can get away with hanging it outside, but some people have had check engine lights come one because of that. I'd modify the filter though. This is how NismoPC over at the SR20DEforum did his. This is the right way to do it, IMO. I can't get the images to link so, click on his site to see the pics. NismoPC's web page
this gone is pretty good. easy 2 maintan. i dont really feel like cutting n-e-thing but so far it hasnt done n-e-thing bad. ME and Tekno kid has the same set up so *shrugs* his car is fine and my car is fine.hey liuspeed, did that cone do any good? just the cone by itself? I'm thinking of going ghetto style adn replacing a cone filter for the box and just some cut up piping to replace the plastic "tubing" for where the mas connects. And yeah, like toolapc said, I hope your cone isn't on too tight, that would totally cut all info to the air sensor.
