have a look on ebay under ford probe or MX6, there should be plenty available. beware the cheap price, they usually get you with the shipping!

yup. mx6 cold air intake. That'll get hundreds of results.

Bank on either buying one with a K&N filter (there are a few..) or getting another pod when it gets here has the eBay pods are crap.

the couplers are generally crap also, while they will last a year or two its good to know they will split down the road so id just go buy good ones once you get the CAI. my ebay CAI coupler split from no mounting bracket and slowly rubbing on another piece of metal, make sure you bolt your VAF to something to prevent this.

yeah i think i will do this i want it to look as stock as possible to. Sweet i just got paid i'l head down there now.

##UPDATE## Scratch that idea, i was out measuring up what sizes i wld need for supercheap when i noticed how goddam restrictive our vaf is. The reason i wanted to do the prelude setup cai was because the factory cai looks very restrictive, but it kind of defeats the purpose if we have a restrictive vaf doesnt it??

yes, our VAF is very restrictive.

Adding a CAI will hardly result in a power gain.

but it sounds a whole heap cooler and DOES get better fuel economy.
I noticed about 1L/100km improvement down the highway after fitting a CAI.
