I rescently purchased a map ECU and I plan to remove the maf very soon.

I would like to retain the stock airbox.

So far the only option I have seen is to buy the HKS VPC tube, and HKS mega-flow filter. What other alternative are out there?

Thanks,
Randy

Mine was done by the last owner, but it's a custom-made intake tube with a K&N filter. Total was $400, including labor and the filter, but it doesn't include an air box. :(

I priced this out and they want 200.00 just to even start the project! I need to keep the cost below the HKS VPC tube for this to be worth it.

If you want to keep the stock airbox then I would suggest to take your MAF and remove the whole crap inside of it´s tube and just keep the tube (or housing) of it.
Then it will look clean and no hasseling with adaption to the OEM box;)

That would be the best option except I will probally need the MAF installed again someday.

Map Ecu + Stock Airbox = Why?
Remember that my stock airbox is "cut" to allow air to come in through the front.

Yeah, but you can get those all over for around 60 or 70 bucks since a lot of people going MAP ECU or AEM or whatever ... ;)
Or search for a defective one in the search/for sale section for like 10 bucks or so:)
Then you are all good. :bigthumb:

I didn't pay a red cent for this! Just go to the muffler shop and ask for one of their SS tube drops. Then, expand the end to slip-fit into the air box and you're done. Keep you MAF for later and don't go with a damn pod filter- waste of money.

I ended up buying a stock maf that I plan to gut. It's amazing how much space the element sensor takes up!

Right. The huge black plastic piece inside is a big thing...
I think that way is the most convinient and decent looking one for your aims with the stock airbox.
Have fun with the MAP ECU :) I like mine..
