Nah, my whole life (Army, current job) has proven to me I am not promotable...

I just know that the "Don't do it without an after market intake" rule isn't necessarily true. You gotta give it a shot and see what happens with your car.

One disclaimer, tho, My airbox is severely gutted, which may make a difference. One of these days I'll finally get off my lazy patoot and take the pics of it I have promised so often.....

I'll just throw in here and say I had some problem pulling mine out. Rough Idle and hesitation under load. Put it back in and all was well.

Take off your intake hose from the throttle body. That screen you see is the MAF screen. Around the edge of the screen is a little snap ring that has 2 very small holes on either end. If you get a tool small enough you can lift the edge of the snap ring towards the center of the screen and it will pop out. VERY carefully pull the screen out of the throttle body (be careful as it is thin aluminum and will crush easily), Put your intake tubing back on and secure.

done on my car.. and Tamara'* old 95.. no problem.. gutted the resonator in the airbox too.. I believe the resonator makes a big difference as there'* big enough gap between it and the back of the airbox and the accordian tube that the air can swirl and cause more turbulance before entering the TB. The air is pretty much turbulant cause of the accordian tube, but the more turbulant.. the more chance that MAF screen removal won't work.

3 or 3.5" pipe, mandrel bent 45* give or take depending on model.

Aluminum is nice, then stainless steel.
