The RX-4750 looks larger than the E-1009... is that just me though?

has anyone used their stock air box and put a cone filter in it on a series 2. I am wondering because i want to try it but i cant find a pipe that would fit into it. I have seen some that would be close but not exactly. So if anyone knows one please post a link. Because i would like to keep my stock box. Give me some ideas thank you.

This doesn't answer TJ'* question (although I think it would be a close fit with a PCM relocate), but the setup in my sig nets me within 5 of ambient temps in the summer. The heatshield cost me less than 20 bucks. All parts from Home Depot, and a little custom laser engraving

Pipe is one of the limited ADTR'* (autozone pipe will substitute, I did DrJay'* with him), and any filter with a 3" flange like DrJay mentioned. One of these days we need to calculate surface area.

By my rough calculations, the RX-4750 actually has more surface area. The advantage it has is that it'* surface area only takes up a width of 6" depending on orientation. I had more vertical height to mount it than I did width, so it was the perfect solution. Pdad mounts his the other way, due to the different application of the 2000+ engine bay.

The E-1009 is longer by 3/4 of an inch, but is only 5.8" in diameter over this whole length. The RX4750 has a base of 6x8" oval, tapering to a 5" round at a length of 6.5" from the base, and also has a velocity stack on the end. I don't believe the E-1009 has the velocity stack (Xstream top). The end of the 4750 provides another 20sq" of surface area.

The 4750 would not have worked very well on my '97 SE. I had a similar K&N model #0810 on my car previous to my 4730, and it was just too long without a PCM relocation. The 4730 sacrifices some surface area, but with the 6" overall length it can be positioned much more effectively than the 9" 0810 or 4750. According to my friend'* Digimoto I'm pulling ambient temps when moving at roughly 25mph or more. I don't know if this is par for the course or not, but I'm quite happy with my setup. I'll have to post pics of it sometime.

To make a long story short, you may want to consider using the RX-4730 instead of the 4750.

In terms of surface area, I think i have everyone beat. I have a 12" filter, that is typically used in camaro setups. The only remaining problem is making a heat sheild around the filter.

As long as you're using a quality filter that'* of reasonable size you're not going to outflow it. Someone had the autozone option for $15 on ebay..
