Ah, while I'm here... hehe I think this is more of a personal preference/cosmetic thing than anything... honestly. Some people SWEAR by cold-air intakes, swear up-n-down that the *slightly* cooler air makes a huge 5hp+ difference... BUT, think logically here, whether or not you're pulling air from outside or under the hood, by the time it hits the manifold it's probably pretty well warmed anyway.hey Parisifal, is there a way i can email you, or better yet IM you on AIm or something, i need to talk to you about this for a quick couple of minutes, thanks.. but if parisifal doesnt come back to read this, than can someone tell me straight up wether short ram air w/ heat shield or cold air is better, an most importantly, why?
Wait, how can a i4 98hp mx6 beat a 255hp rx7 on the track? The Rx7 would have the advantage in acceleration AND cornering. Unless that driver spun out or failed at life, I really cannot picture that happening. And yes, the Mx6 is formidable, but only compared to other FWD cars. There is no way our cars can beat an Rx7 on the track."an mx6 beating a rx7......that's like pee wee herman beating up the giant........"
that is not true!!! i have an Mx6 Rs and i wup on Rx7's all day at the track, but....i run cirucit and willow springs. The Mx6 has a lot of potential, and im kinda ashamed at how many people on this webbsite have an mx6 and yet they trash it. thats not cool. I have witnessed first hand how powerfull this car is, and i have a lot of respect for it. I myself have beaten a 2001 corvett, 350z, and rx7's just with the FS03. so i disagree. But as for the topic, i think you can swap the KLZE into the FS body, if im not mistaken, you need the V6 powersteering pump, Radiator Hoses, Axles, and there is minor fabrication needed to mount the transmission. i myself have reaserched a whole lot on the topic of Swapping the KLZ into the 4 banger and i know there is mixed feelings on this...but as for my opinion, i think it can be done, and i plan to do it myself....but on the other hand, I totally agree that it is easier to do the swap if you have have an A-spec V6.
P.S. sorry didn mean to ramble..lol

You get worse efficiency because the CAI induction noise sounds cool, so we're always dogging the throttle . I actually noticed an increase in gas mileage, nothing tremendous, but a definite difference from that restrictive stock intake. I guess everyone's experiences are differentThe stock intake does a good job , buy using short ram or a cheap CAI ur just going to be getting more noise and worse fuel efficiency.
just buy a K&N square filter and put it in ur stock airbox.
