I was wondering if the top brands PRM, Hotshot, intakes fit on ATX. I have already tried to make a homemade CAI for my car but with the big tranny it was too hard :mad: . An ATX was not my first choice but I got a good deal on it and I didn't want my 1st car to be a honda! I live in FL so rain is a big issue.

I'll tell you right now though, the Hotshot CAI for an ATX will not work on the MX-6. It will work on the Probe though. I tried to put it on my MX-6 and it will not fit. The front of the car is just a little bit shorter than the Probe, and talking to Hotshot, they said they designed and built it on a Probe and not an MX-6 - they just assumed it would fit. So they are in the process of redesigning it for an MX-6 ATX.

Actually it kinda IS about luck. You see, for some reason, different cars have have a different amount of clearance between the radiator and the front of the engine than otheres. For instance. One time when Superwoop and I were at the track, we both had our hoods popped and we were looking at our engines. I notices that he had about 2" more clearance than what MY engine had. In my car I could barely stick my arm down to reach the front O2 sensor when in his engine, I probably had more than enough room.

Point is, it depends on your car. And if you want to fake out Hotshot and tel them that you have a PGT and buy one to see if it fits, then by all means do. If not, you could wait until Hotshot gets a hold of a 93+ MX6 ATX to test fit the new CAI in place and see if it makes it into production.

There is no way that it would fit on my Mx-6 .

I went with a prm without a pipe and hooked it up to my black plastic air induction that comes with every stock 6. That way i am getting a nice clean flow but am not pulling hot air from the engine as you would get if you just stick a cone on. Although I wish there is a CAI so i can get a little better boost :)

i just order a ractive heat shield filter. I'm gonna try to hook a mighty flow pipe onto the end of the ractive filter and extend it toward the bottom of the car. I did try to make a regular hotshot style CAI with that same pipe, BUT it was with a 3", so I had to learn the hard way to 3" pipe was not going to fit. It almost did but the plastic part of the pipe got ripped, so im gonna try a 2.5" inch and get an adapter to fit the end of ractive heat shield. this would only cost me about $45.
