    Maggie CAI - not the regular kind

    Gents,

    Having seen pics of the Procharger setup inc. a true CAI that goes under the fender as opposed to sucking in hot engine air I'm curious if anyone's attempted to replicate this?

    I'm interested in replacing the stock air box with something decent but not really tempted by the LPEs and K&N systems.

    So has anyone tried it? How much work is involved? What sort of cone filter, couplings, piping did you use?

    I'd like to couple this to the maggie tube.

    I have been planning on tackling this but haven't got around to it yet. There is room in the bumper directly below where the stock airbox sits.

    You just need to cut a whole in the metal and fab up some tubing. I think I'm going to cut the K&N heat sheild and bolt it down over the hole I cut so I can keep the regular MAF attachment on the topside and the filter attachment on the lower side.

    I even have an extra K&N tube that should work perfectly, I've just been too lazy.

    Need some pics or sketches or something to better picture this.

    Sounds interesting, though.

    Yep. You'll see it done in the procharger pics... Can't seem to find them again. I guess you could either put in a heatshield (maybe even cut the stock airbox) to keep MAF and pipe secure then get a 90 degree pipe, do some drilling and attach the cone.

    I wonder what size cone filter will fit under there?

    Thinking now

    I'd bet a dollar that EPP's setup ditches the MAF completely and runs a VE tune. Wait until you guys find out what happens by adding tube length on either side of the MAF and change its relative distance from either the TB or inlet.

    Take it easy on the popcorn, it may be a while. I have been very unmotivated recently when it comes to mods.

    I was the guinea pig for a Vortech SC kit for the NB Miata. After months of waiting for fabbed parts to arrive via Fedex to fix unforseen problems I had, it all got traced down to MAF placement.

    Apparently those little buggers are very sensitive to where they're placed in the intake tubing, and changing the position without changing the tune flarns everything up.

    Good to know, I hadn't thought that far into it yet. I'm not in the mood to flarn anything up thats for sure.

    I can get re-tuned for next to nothing though so if I ever actually go ahead with it I will have him look it over.

    Didnt EPP have to notch the frame for Bobs setup?
