Hey guys/girls,

I have seen instructions on how to install a new intake for the mx6... but can someone who doesn't know a whole lot about engines really do it? Should I attempt it? Also, what are good brands? Lastly, will it make my magnaflow exhaust louder? :)


Thanks,
Alex

i bought my filter for $15... just a plain jane cone filter. i feed it cold air with vacuum hoses. one blows the cold air at it and the other functions as a ram-air, forcing the air through the front element (its a dual element). its not really a true ram-air b/c i reach ATM and then air comes out of the larger element... but just that hose made it more peppy

Ok here we go

Ok, I think I have decided to just replace the stock box with a cone type filter. Do I need to worry about any sensors around/on the stock intake/or hose?

Thanks,
Alex

If you do this, you will actually loose hp because you are sucking in hot air from under the hood. I would either buy a cold air intake from http://www.hotshot.com or http://www.prmracing.com. Or if you are up to the task, you could make one for much less (mine only cost 50 bucks) http://www.geocities.com/adamk01452/MX-6_Intake.html

on the next site click on the how to page for the intake info.

or you can do like i did...or go one step further... take a canister from an eclipse/talon, or other car that uses a cylindrical filter. attach it a feed it with turbo/vacuum hose. if youre really serious, insulate thermally and seal, giving you ram-air induction. you also wont have to worry about water ingestion like with the CAI option.
